Animals come in all shapes and sizes and a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for them just like it doesn’t work for you. Custom compounded medications for animals are a great way to treat your animal in the most effective way possible. Medications can be customized for animals to solve many problems including:
- Flavoring to improve taste. (fish, liver, chicken, beef, etc.)
- Changing the way it is given to make it easier on the animal and owner. (a topical gel for a cat to treat hyperthyroidism)
- Formulating a specific dose that is not available commercially.
- Compounding medications that are no longer available commercially.
If you have a difficult to dose animal call us to find out if we can compound something to make your life easier. Or talk to your vet and ask if a compounded medication is appropriate for your animal.
