What is compounding?

Compounding is a way for licensed pharmacists to create a customized medication that meets your pets specific needs. Compounding pharmacists mix or change one or more FDA-approved medications to prepare a special medication for your pet. For example, if a medication is only available in pill form, the pharmacist might create it in liquid, gel, or capsule form.

Why do some pets need compounded drugs?

Your pet may have a specific health need that cannot be addressed by an FDA-approved drug. For example:

  • Your pet has trouble taking pills but will take medication in a flavored liquid or other form.
  • Your pet needs medication in a strength that is not commercially available.
  • Your pet is allergic to a specific ingredient in a medication.

Always talk with your veterinarian about any concerns you have about your pets health so they can prescribe a treatment for your pets unique needs.

    I like this okay

    By Ally on Jun 13, 2021

    I find this lotion form much easier to give and less stressful for the both of us on that level. It has made my boy turn his nose up for food. He still eats kibble but won’t eat fresh turkey and the canned food he used to love. He’s hungry, but smells the food and just walks away frustrated. I’m considering putting him back on the pill form just so he’ll eat his food again as he’s on the urinary diet and our options are limited.

    The solution for Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome!

    By Vixcat on Jun 7, 2021

    The transdermal amiltriptyline works perfectly. Our cat would froth at the mouth every time we gave Amiltriptyline to him in the pill form, and he’d spit the pill out at every dose. He has feline hyperesthesia syndrome and the rippling skin on his back has disappeared. Pain is gone, he’s not seeing things that aren’t there. We have our sweet kitty back and we’re very thankful.

    Transdermal Amitriptyline fantastic for my cat

    By Shadow1945 on Jun 13, 2021

    The Transdermal Amitriptyline Compounded has helped our rescued Tabby with pain control. He has Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome, which is painful. He was impossible to pill or give liquid medications to. The transdermal application is easy and non-traumatic to him. The price is one third cheaper than our local compounding pharmacy.

    Finally a med that works

    By boots on Apr 1, 2021

    This medication is amazing. My guy is older and gets anxious when I leave the house for more than an hour. Tried pills and the horrible liquid form, both of which made him foam at the mouth. I gave him this med and he didn't even move. This med saved me from feeling like a horrible pet mom.

    Helps for anxiety

    By Yennilynn on Feb 18, 2021 top1000Contributor

    Great, really helps with my cats’ anxiety and depression. They’re more lively and have less anxiety when it comes to eating or in general. The only thing I don’t like about this is that when twisting it, not always the same amount comes out and you have to give more. It’s also really slippery and fall off easily from your fingers when you’re going to apply it. And the third I noticed is that it melted towards the top and the twisting no longer worked, so I had to use force to push the medicine out, but that can just be from the climate where I live, so I’m not sure.
