Vet Compounding

Most veterinary medications are prescribed and supplied by the Veterinarian. However many of these products have limitations in animal use as they are only available in limited strengths and dosage forms. Sometimes commercially produced medications are not the best choice for an individual animal.

Vet Compounding for animals allows for custom dosage forms, flavors and strengths.

We offer a wide range of compounded vet products for an equally wide range of animals. We have made products for cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, birds and we even made suppositories for an elephant!!!!

Some of the more common compounds we make include:

  • Trilostane
  • Methimazole
  • Cisapride
  • Fluoxetine
  • Pimobendan
  • Tramadol
  • Tetracycline
  • Thermo reversal ear gels

The practice of pharmacy compounding is becoming a popular solution to veterinary problems. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customised medications for patients. Its resurgence in recent years extends valuable benefits to today’s pet owners. Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans can have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Medicating pets presents unique problems that often are best dealt with through compounding.

As a pet owner, you want your pet to receive the highest-quality care.
