Ursodiol is a bile acid that may be prescribed for certain types of gallstones, gallbladder inflammation, or liver disease. Ursodiol Compounded Chews are flavored for your pet and are individually sealed in a UV resistant blister pack to retain freshness.
The doctor recommended the medicine and they provided it. They contacted the vet directly so I did not have to worry about anything.
These are the correct dosage for my little dog. However, the packaging is to push out the tablet and this is difficult. This packaging needs some work by the manufacturer. You can pop out 3-4 instead of just one. The foil on the backside doesn't break quickly or sometimes too quickly where you get 2-4 instead of just one. It's not helpful, so I cut the entire package out and put into a zip-lock baggie instead.
The medicine we needed was recommended by our vet but had to be compounded at chewy pharmacy per our vet’s recommendation. We received it promptly at a much lower price than our vet could have offered plus the vet did not have it in stock. Chewy’s pharmacy team was helpful and professional. I also get our dogs’ heartworm and flea medicines and dog food at Chewy. Chewy is really a one stop shop.
My pet loves the flavor or these and takes like a real treat, however they are not really soft and as a senior, has a hard time chewing them. The foil pack is bad packaging ..its nice they are individually wrapped but the foil is very thin and weak and often tears across other pills.
Great option for many people looking for compounded sizes when availability is limited in people pharmacies. I called all over and could not find the size we needed available, thus we opted to have it compounded and Chewy.com promised quickest shipping and most bang for our buck. The chew itself is a bit tough for my senior so I cut it up into 4 pieces, it could be softer but then again this is a medicine and not a treat so I am not even sure if a softer recipe is possible or if it would compromise the integrity of the RX. The foil blister packaging is tricky to break off because each chew is in a individual square that is perforated to be broken off but sometimes you end up breaking off the squares next to it and accidentally punchuring the foil on more than one chew. All user error aside, great option for compounding. Would be great if possibiltiy of softer chew comes to fruition, could improve packaging but the main thing is that the drug is accurate and available. No complaints.
