Providing better care for domestic and exotic animals

Providing better care for domestic and exotic animals

The care for pets, livestock, wildlife and zoo animals can be a challenge for both the veterinarian and the owner. Often, the usual medical techniques work marginally or not at all on many types of animals.That''s where an experienced compounding pharmacist can help – creating customized medicines designed for each individual patient.

Custom Medications
No matter how accurate the diagnosis, if an animal won''t take the prescribed medication, the treatment cannot be successful. A compounding pharmacist is able to formulate customized medications to encourage prescription compliance. Your pharmacist can develop custom flavors for individual animal tastes – carrot for horses, banana for exotic animals, "triple fish" for felines and liver for dogs. Many diabetic animals are unable to take sweetened medicines. Your pharmacist can creat a sugar-free formula that still tastes good to your pet. For torn ligaments, infections and other topical applications, an easy-to-apply transdermal medication can be created, ensuring proper dosing and simple application.

Medication Monitoring
One of the most difficult facets in veterinary practice is determining the effectiveness of various medications. Direct feedback is not often possible when administering medications. Your compounding pharmacist, working with your veterinarian, can create a customized treatment, administer the medications, monitor the results and adjust flavors, dosages or delivery methods.

Providing the Best Care
Animals are individuals, just like their human partners. By using some of the same techniques developed for human applications, we can create a better treatment regimen and offer better care for our non-human friends. See our compounding pharmacist or talk to your veterinarian to learn more about providing a better level of care for your domestic, exotic or farm animals. You can request a customized treatment for your pet and help assure a faster recovery with fewer complications.
