At Specialty Pharmacy we know all pets are different and we compound medications that can meet the distinctive needs of your animal. 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.
We can compound medications into specialized dosage forms and shapes to cater to individual preferences such as rectal suppositories and topical sprays. For example, transdermal delivery is a method in which you apply the medication to the inside of an animal’s ear for systemic absorption. This type of delivery is useful in patients who should not become stressed while medication is being administered. This delivery also makes it easier for the owner to administer the medication.
We can compound tasty medications that are just the right size, shape and consistency for domestic or exotic animals. Various flavors are available such as fish for cats, beef and liver for dogs, tutti frutti for birds, banana for exotics, etc.
Working with your veterinarian, we can incorporate the right amount of medication into chewy treats, capsules, and topical or transdermals into the most appropriate dosage for a specific animal.
Following a veterinarian’s prescription, we can make medicine that is easier to administer and improve compliance. For example, oral and topical syringes provide a simple means of accurately measuring and administering medication and are particularly useful when the dose fluctuates.
Often times in the business of pharmaceuticals, a product may be discontinued due to limited demand and decreased profit potential. However, for your pet this product is vital to their recovery or continued well-being. At Specialty Pharmacy we concern ourselves with providing you with the solutions you need to achieve maximum therapeutic benefit. We work with you and your veterinarian to provide the appropriate dosage forms of these medications to suit your pet’s needs.
Upon request of a veterinarian, we may be able to compound various discontinued or unavailable medications. Please call us at (321) 953-2004 for more information.
Our veterinary compounding service allows veterinarians to broaden their prescribing abilities and to offer dosage forms that are patient-specific in strength and formulation. To learn more about veterinary compounding, contact your veterinarian or Specialty Pharmacy. We would be happy to work with your veterinarian on the treatment options that are right for your animal.
