What is Veterinary Compounding?
Veterinary compounding is the act of a professional medical practitioner combining (or adjusting) prescription ingredients in order to either create or amend medication for a veterinary patient. This is always conducted by request of a certified veterinarian.
For horses, dogs, cats, rodents, birds, and reptiles, veterinary compounding can:
- Deliver specific medication concentrations
- Change the dosage form
- Customize the flavour options
- Combine multiple medications into one dosage form
- Source medications that are commercially unavailable in your area
- Provide specific doses other than commercially made options i.e.: pergolide mesylate for equine Cushing’s Disease
Medication types we commonly compound for your furry friend include medications for seizures, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and motion sickness, and Cushing’s Disease in horses.
Your pet is part of your family. That’s why Island Family offers all the benefits of veterinary compounding for your furry friend. Read on for more info on what veterinary compounding is, what it can do for your pet, and, of course, how we here at Island Pharmacy are...
