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.

    Great for Finicky Cats

    By Tiffany on Oct 20, 2021

    Metronidazole is a bitter tasting medication. My vet originally gave me tablets, but my IBD cat would spit it out and start foaming/drooling each time. If I mixed the crushed tablet into food, he wouldn't touch the food. I was at my wits end. I really didnt want to have to shell out the big bucks to have it compounded into a flavored chew. These capsules are a life saver. Now I use a piller to easily pill this medication. His stools are finally more on the solid side and he does seem to feel a lot better on this medication.

    Good For Kitty With Diarrhea

    By Layla on Jun 22, 2021

    This medication was prescribed for my cat, Layla, who was suffering from severe diarrhea. I have never been successful getting her to take a pill or capsule. I mixed the contents of the capsule into a paté treat (those that come in tubes or sleeves). Mixed it well while in the tube. The paté and the medication went down easily. No problems. She couldn't tell ... if there was a difference in flavor.

    No way to give these to a cat, they don't crush and are big

    By CB123 on Apr 7, 2021

    How am I supposed to give these to my kitten? They're huge and not something you can crush.
