Compound Medicine For Pets
Your pets are a part of your family, and when it comes to their medical care, you want them to have the very best. Unfortunately, our pets can suffer from many of the same medical concerns and diseases that we suffer from: skin rashes, infections, allergies, heart conditions, diabetes, and even cancer. Yet treating these concerns can present unique problems that make developing and administering the appropriate medications more challenging.
Because pets come such a wide variety of species, sizes, and dietary needs, creating standardized medications that work for all of them can be extremely difficult for most veterinarian practices and standard pharmacies. Because every medication we create is developed specifically for the patient—animal or human—we can more easily customize each dosage for the unique needs of your pet. Compounded medications offer a variety of benefits, including:
- Significantly easier to administer
Difficulty getting a pet to take a medication is the number one reason why so many pets often don’t get the medications they so desperately need: it can simply be too hard to force an animal to “take” a medication. We solve this problem by creating medications that your pet will think is a treat! We can give your pet’s medication a delicious flavor they like and/or create a formula that is easy for them to eat, making it easier for you to ensure that your pet gets the medications it needs.
- Meet the exact dosage required by your pet’s species and size
Every medication we compound is created with your pet in mind, so you don’t have to worry about whether your pet is getting the correct dosage every time.
Include medications that are hard to obtain or require a mixture of multiple medications
Just like people, sometimes pets have rare and unusual medical concerns or a combination of medical concerns requiring multiple types of medications every day. At Formulation Compounding Center of Lewisville, we keep hundreds of ingredients in-stock so we can compound medications that may be difficult for your vet’s office or neighborhood pharmacy to obtain. Moreover, because every medication is compounded for specifically for your pet, it can combine multiple medications into one easy-to-administer dosage, while still taking into account drug interactions and side effects.
We create medications for pets of almost species and sizes, including:
