Horrible tasting compound medicine

This compounded metronidazole was a complete failure. It was supposed to be marshmallow flavored. When I tried to give it to my cat she struggled like a tiger! I gave it a little taste and it was so bitter I understand why (I understand this drug is bitter). I detected absolutely no sweetness in it. I can’t use it.

capsule too big for cat

I have purchased this from an animal compounding pharmacy for over a decade. It came in a very small capsule (about the size of a Tic-Tac), but it was expensive. I tried getting this from Chewy due to the cost, but the capsule is large (larger than a Tylenol). I am afraid it could lodge in my cat’s throat so I have never used it. It would probably be okay for a dog, but not a cat. Chewy stated this is the only size capsule they carry.

Not Working

I usually bought my cat compounded budesonide at a local drug store, which costs $56 a month, and I found this one on chewy which is way more cheaper. However, this one is not working for my cat... had to change back to the original ones.

Compounded Medication

I was happy when Chewy began to offer compounded medications at a more reasonable price than my veterinarian source. I will purchase from Chewy now.

Pills are too big for a cat

This medication works well for my cat's IBD when purchased at a compounding pharmacy nearby that puts it in a small, round pill form designed for pets. But Chewy's pharmacy put the medication in an oblong capsule, which my cat finds too big and awkward to swallow. It gets stuck on the very back of his tongue and then he just spits it out. It's not like he enjoys the round pill, but it was never a logistical nightmare to get him to swallow it. The oblong one was and I gave up after a few days.

Budesonide helps my cats IBD

I give my cat 2 mg of Budesonide to prevent vomiting from IBD. Chewy is my source and it is quite inexpensive and comes quickly and reliably.

I'm not sure about this drug

Unfortunately if you dog is on this medication things are not good. I think it's working. The vomiting has stopped, but his appetite isn't always great. It is better than pred. He doesn't drink massive amounts of water and does not urinate more than normal. And it is a targeted drug in that it is only working on the GI tact and not the whole body. Those are the positives. Another positive is that Chewy is selling it for way less that the local pharmacies. I just wish he didn't need it at all, but it will be a life long medication for him.
