Compounding Solutions for Veterinary Needs!Today’s pet owners expect a more advanced level of care so they will have a healthy, happy pet. The following are some examples of how compounding can benefit many veterinary problems that pet owners may face.
Administration ProblemsA pet that refuses to take a medication because of the taste can greatly benefit with a compounded medication. The Custom Compounding Center is able to flavor medication that animals love. For example, tuna flavored medication for cats, liver for dogs, and apple for horses. Many medications can be made into a transdermal gel, which can be rubbed into an ear or other area. This is an especially popular administration route for cats, which are notorious for refusing any medication in pill form. For large animals that have difficulty with a liquid form of medication, a “chewie” can be made.
Dosage ProblemsA medication for an 80-pound Labrador would be too much for an 8-pound Poodle. Medications that come in only one strength can be altered to the correct strength for your pet.
