When to Compound for Veterinary Medicine

Compounding medications for companion animals is essential in these instances:
  • Your first line therapy fails
  • A commercially manufactured medication is on backorder or discontinued
  • Your animal has a medical necessity which requires an alternative dosage form or strength be utilized, outside of what is commercially available
  • Your animal has an allergy or side effect to a commercially available product
  • The medical condition and/or medical history of the animal, is such, that it requires the use of multiple therapies combined into one medication
Benefits of Compounding for Veterinarians
You can use the power of pharmacy compounding to benefit your animals’ well being, and to support your position as a problem solving medical specialist within your community.  Utilizing compounding as a treatment option allows you to accrue the following benefits:
  • Expand your treatment armamentarium, and develop a highly satisfied patient base
  • Distinguish your medical practice from that of other providers in your field of medicine, and grow your practice
  • Be assured of competitive, affordable prices that make treatment possible and practical for you and your pet owners
