Veterinary general compounding is a special service sometimes required for your pet’s specific medical needs. Typical examples of veterinary compounding at The Compounding Pharmacy of America include the addition of flavoring to a drug, the preparation of an oral paste, mixing two injectable prescriptions into a new medication, adjusting dosage sizes and more.
Veterinary Compounding Pharmacy
Our veterinary compounding pharmacy is beneficial when a different dosage, flavor or form of your pet’s medicine is needed. Compound medications are specifically prepared for your pet’s specific and unique needs.
We can customize their medicine into different flavors, strengths and forms – including gels that can be absorbed into the skin!
Our compounding process may alter the delivery method of a medication. For example, a medication delivery from a wholesaler arrives in solid form. Our pharmacist may crush the drug and mix with a liquid for injection or create a gel for oral administration. We want to ensure that whichever delivery method is chosen, that it’s the most comfortable for both you and your pet.
Conversions are a vital aspect to the compounding process. We uphold the strictest and most accurate standards to ensure that your pet’s medicines are converted properly in a manner that you or your vet has requested. Conversions can be a simple preparation or a complex one such as the preparation of a multiple component nutrition solution. So whether the need is great or small, we will put the same level of commitment and care into each compound.
Our animal compounding pharmacy specializes in custom dosages. Many medications are often made available as tablets or powders without being separated into specific dosages. Medications may be provided as a 100mg when the animal only requires 50mg per dose. The compounding process allows our pharmacists to offer a more precise dose of medication to properly address a specific medical condition specifically for your loved pet!
We make sure that we live up to the highest standard in all that we do, for ourselves, our customers and our furry friends!
