Pharmacists Helping Vets and Pets
Our specialty service should not be viewed as competition with local veterinarians; rather, compounding allows veterinarians to broaden their prescribing abilities and to offer [dosage] forms that are patient-specific in strength and formulation. Therefore, the goal of compounding for the veterinary patient is to enhance the veterinarian’s ability to treat patients in a more effective and efficient manner.
The Struggle of Medicating Your Pet
Medicating your pet can be a struggle if it is not done properly. The animal may scratch you, bite you, or even cause trauma to the animal as well. However, there are some tricks to giving your pet necessary medications. As a compounding pharmacy, Pure Pharmacy, has several different methods to ensure you’re pet will take any medication. Examples include:
- Flavored suspensions (i.e. bacon, beef, chicken for dogs; tuna or fish flavored for felines)
- Transdermal Creams that can be applied to the inner ear of felines
- Flavored chewable treats
- Capsules that can be hidden inside treats
