Lets Talk About Truly Pampering Your PetYour pet always gets the royal treatment. Why should its veterinarian care be any different?
Your pet has truly earned its cozy little space on the family tree. Every year, you celebrate its birthday, purchase him or her holiday gifts and may even outfit your little friend in fashionable wares. Of course, in addition to large dosages of attention and lots of tender love and care, you want to provide topnotch quality veterinary care when your pet truly needs it.
When pets get sick, it’s difficult to get them to swallow pills or other medications and the daily struggle begins. As pet owners, we want to see others treat our pets with the same degree of care and compassion that we do. Anyone who has ever tried to bury a pill into a pet’s food knows that Fido is certainly not the best patient—that’s why compounding offers an ideal solution for administering pet medication. We’re here to make it all better.
Trick or Treat? Transforming medication into yummy treats
The age-old art of pharmacy compounding is certainly becoming a preferred solution for loving pet owners who truly want the best care for their pets. Fusing science with art, compounding delivers customized medications rather than a one-size-fits-all solution. Although our furry friends differ from us in many significant ways, they do share many of the same devastating diseases. Just like us, they fall ill to cancer, diabetes, heart conditions, skin rashes and eye and ear infections. Medicating pets is a difficult task, which is easily solved through compounding. We can craft a custom solution that works for your pet’s specific needs.
The Solution: Compounding for Pets
We all know how challenging it is to get your pets to take a daily dose of medication. We employ the same tricks to get the task done, but sooner or later our pets, which are, of course of superior intelligence, catch on and we need to come up with yet another, more innovative (and effective) solution. Customized care is the answer.
Depending on an animal’s size and stature, medication dosages vary greatly. It doesn’t take an expert with a veterinarian degree to realize that what works for Max—an 80-pound Labrador simply will not work for Bella—a six-pound Maltese. Large pets such as horses and/or exotic breeds of birds also require highly individualized, custom care. A compounding pharmacist can work with you to tailor a solution that suits your pet’s needs. Those include all domestic pets and those housed in facilities such as zoo’s, aquariums, and kennels, etc.
- Reptiles (snakes, lizards, etc.)
- Ferrets & related species
Pick Your Potion: Flavored medicine
By working closely with your veterinarian, a compounding pharmacist can tailor specialized medicines in flavored dosages that are easy to administer. For example, Since birds can’t take in large volumes of liquid medication, The Compounding Facility can create a concentrated fruit-flavored solution exclusively for them.
Solving the Dosage Dilemma
Much like humans, pets are individual and highly unique. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and, just like we do, some have dietary restrictions. Medications that are commercially available may not suit your pet’s specific needs (i.e. lactose intolerance). Compounding offers the customized solution that you’re seeking for your pet’s expert care. Your veterinarian can prescribe a flavored liquid treat or other form such as a cream with the correct dosage of medication that is tailored to your pet’s specific needs, size and condition therefore insuring successful administration of medication.
The compounding of medications is important due to the premise that the manufacturers may discontinue the production of certain a certain medication when the demand for large quantities of this medication are diminished. However, there might be pets that rely on these medications, having had good results while taking these medicines. When a medication works for your pet, you should have the option available for its continued use. The Compounding Facility has the answer, our pharmacist can compound a prescription of the unavailable product & tailor the dosage form and flavor to meet your pets specific needs. Therefore, if you desire truly customized care for your pet, it is recommended that you talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist about compounding today.
