What is a veterinary pharmacy?
Veterinary pharmacy is the professional practice that makes sure your animal is getting the best results from his medications. Sometimes when a pet needs a medication that is not typically carried or manufactured by drug companies, your vet can ask the pharmacist for compounded medication, or many times the strength available just isn’t right for your pet.
What is Compounding?
Compounding is the art of customizing medications to fit individual needs. Standard methods of delivery, dosage, strength, or taste can be customized to avoid problems or make a medication easier to give to your pet.
Compounding makes it easy to give your pet medication
1. Does Piper hate taking medication?
