FAQ

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.

    Yuuucckk!says the kitty

    By Jahwi on Jul 11, 2021

    Looks like my 15 yr.old sweetheart isn't the only one who can't stand this stuff. She was "OK" with the stuff I got locally, but this stuff literally makes her gag! Then she gets 2 streams of drool that hang to the floor. Something is not right with this formula!

    not good for my cat

    By Miner on Jun 17, 2021

    I’ve had this same medication compounded elsewhere, and my cat had done fine with it. I decided to get it through Chewy this time, but my cat foamed at the mouth and drooled excessively when I gave it to her. There must be something about the flavor or the medication that didn’t do well with her.

Prednisone is very basic.My vet sells 100 tablets for 20.00 and cat only swallows 1/4 of each pill so it's like 400 doses!The bottle from chewy was leaking so empty bottle!!! Poor packaging.Plus my vet wanted us have 3 bottles of this as chicken flavored a cat needs asap.Id love 3 bottles for price of one as soooo small,mini!!! Dr G

    Does the trick

    By Andy on Jun 4, 2021

    Got the chicken flavor at a fraction of the price my vet charged. My cat takes it fine. Maybe the bad reviews are of the tuna flavor which we haven’t tried.

    Icky fish oil

    By Vini on Mar 25, 2021

    The tuna flavor is horrible. It has an oily consistency with a very strong smell that sticks to everything. It's smells like those Omega 3 fish oils, not like tuna. You hand will be smelly, so will your pet's face. In fact my cat hurt herself by how much she was trying to clean her mouth with her paw. I'm trying the chicken flavor now.

    Just don't do it

    By Tryingtohelp on Apr 2, 2021

    I thought I would take a moment to try to save someone some frustration when attempting to save money on prednisolone. This product is absolutely horrible. It's nearly impossible to administer from a syringe, it's horribly oily. Please save yourself the disappointment, this product is awful.

    My cat hates all meds, but tolerates this OK

    By Kokojo on Jun 1, 2021

    I felt I had to write this highly positive review, when I saw all the negative reviews. Each cat’s reaction to medication is individual, and idiosyncratic (weird and unexplainable). Getting oral prednisolone liquid delivered from Chewy has been a lifesaver and a huge timesaver. The quality of the medication is fine, and no more dreaded than any other medication from any other source. If you want to know why I wrote a 4-star review for a “cat runs under the bed every time she hears me shake the bottle” product, read on (it’s long). My cat needs oral liquid prednisolone for the remainder of her (lymphoma-shortened) life. At this point, she’s been on medication for over a year.

My cat needs oral liquid prednisolone for the remainder of her (lymphoma-shortened) life. At this point, she’s been on medication for over a year. I’d originally gotten a liver flavor from a local (local = one-hour drive each way) compounding pharmacy, that cost twice as much, and was only available in a 1-month supply. I was happy to see that Chewy offers it in a 2 month supply (for my cat’s dosage) and half the cost, with free shipping, so I switched. Note here: my cat HATES all medications (including flea drops). She despised the original “sweet liver” flavor from the local pharmacy, and hated Chewy pharmacy’s “chicken” flavor even more, spending several minutes hacking, spitting and drooling to get the taste out of her mouth (same reaction to both liver & chicken flavors, both pharmacies). She would foam at the mouth, drooling, the whole nasty business. When I told my vet, she suggested switching to the tuna flavor (in spite of the fact that my cat used to need to be on a fish-free diet) and to my great surprise, kitty tolerates this nasty (to me) flavor. After her initial “wait what?!?!” normal reaction to the dropper, she just swallows it and goes about her business. No drooling, no hacking (unless I’ve squirted too quickly), and best of all, no more foaming and refusing to eat for hours afterward. Regarding other people’s issues with the dropper (syringe) getting clogged, thick consistency, smell, etc: 1 Yes, the tuna flavor is cloudy & must be shaken. Yes, it has a weird nasty smell (to a human) but my cat seems to like it just fine. In fact, her reaction is so much more positive, she even goes back to eating her dinner (after the other medicine flavors, with all the drooling and foaming, she wouldn’t eat for hours afterward). She does have a residual smell about her face, but it’s my understanding that a long-term prednisolone regimen causes oily skin and fur, so I use some waterless shampoo on her (which she also despises, that’s another story/review). She’s a smelly cat now, but at least a living cat, and more or less comfortable, so that’s the trade-off for me. 2 No, I’ve had no problems with the consistency of the liquid - based on what I see in the bottle when I shake it. I literally never touch the actual liquid (because even prednisolone can be absorbed a little through the skin). Also, I noticed that it does NOT need to be refrigerated, so I keep it on the counter at room temperature. I expect the consistency would change if it were refrigerated. 3 The dropper/syringe- I’ve had to use this kind of dispensing bottle (with the tight plastic stopper into which the syringe dropper gets inserted) for human medication, and had no problems. Two tricks- after each use, I rinse just the tip of the syringe, and stick it back into the stopper. I used to pump it under running water each time to clean it, and that actually wore out the syringe (made it leaky) before the bottle was used up. So now, just a quick rinse of the tip, and back into the stopper- no more leaking. And while I save a spare syringe in case I break one, I toss the old ones and start fresh with the new dropper that comes with each bottle. Also, I mark the dosage line with a Sharpie pen- makes it easier to draw the right dosage quickly (important when holding a squirming cat who knows what’s coming). Yes, there’s a tiny residue in the tip, but the dosage lines account for the fact that there’s always a little medication left in the tip. For me, getting this medication shipped from Chewy has been a huge time-saver (no more 2 hour drives in bumper-to-bumper traffic), and by switching flavors, I found one that my kitty finds acceptable. Yeah, it’s expensive (considering that prednisone for humans is a lot cheaper) but cost less per day than her prescription & grain-free food. You can see how I mark the bottle in the photo; in the other pic you can see the oily fur. Yes, that’s a clipped ear- she’s a colony rescue kitty. … more

    Tuna flavor is icky

    By Cody on Feb 2, 2021

    Chewy is great and the auto ship is amazing. I have this prescribed for my ferret and he actually enjoyed taking the regular flavored med until our vet couldn’t fill it so we switched to chewy and now we have to force it on our buddy. He hates the tuna flavor. We will be switching back to regular just to make medicine time less difficult for him. It also seems to be more sticky than the regular.

    Easy to order, but my cat hates it

    By Aleks on Jan 8, 2021

    The good: Chewy is really easy to work with and order from. The order was placed and approved through my vet quickly, and shipped with adjusted dosing instructions as it is a different concentration than what my vet originally prescribed. Will 100% use Chewy pharmacy again. But... Not for this product. The bad? My cat HATES this. Cats don't typically like medications, but his reaction to this compound is magnitudes stronger than it was to the first compound of prednisolone we received from our vet.

    Not recommended for syringe use

    By Tori on Dec 13, 2020

    My kitty Josie takes prednisolone for her asthma. I was excited to see that Chewy had her meds for a much cheaper price. I was even more excited when I saw that they had a new version that wasn't cherry flavor. So I went ahead and ordered it, even though I normally only order something if it has high ratings from plenty of reviewers. I should have waited for reviews before ordering this. This med is a thick, creamy-colored liquid that needs to be shaken before each use (the med I previously used was a thin, clear liquid). My kitty only takes 0.1 mL of the med, so I measure it out with a small syringe. The first issue I encountered is that, since the formula is so thick, a good amount of it My kitty Josie takes prednisolone for her asthma.

My kitty only takes 0.1 mL of the med, so I measure it out with a small syringe. The first issue I encountered is that, since the formula is so thick, a good amount of it stays in the syringe. Even with pulling water into the syringe and squirting it back out I was unable to get all of the meds out. I'm worried that I'm not giving my kitty her full dose because of this. The second issue is that the formula is sticky. The day after my first use, I tried to use the syringe and it was stuck. After trying to get it loose it eventually broke. Fortunately, I have a few spare syringes. Now after giving Josie her meds I have to rinse both pieces of the syringe thoroughly and let them dry separately. This is a small inconvenience, but it does get quite annoying having to do this each time. Unfortunately, even with this the syringe still sticks a little. That being said, I would not recommend this to anyone who uses a syringe to measure the doses. I'd guess that these concerns wouldn't be an issue for anyone who uses a measuring spoon. I gave this product two stars because, despite the issues I have had, my kitty eats it with her wet food with no problem, and she has not had any negative reactions to it. … more
