Dogs love Chewy Treats.
The Animal Pharmacy also has the ability to prepare come medication into Chewy Treats! We have special forms and a press that will make medication dosing a truly enjoyable experience that your pet will actually look forward to.
Cats love added affection!
Some drugs can be turned into a transdermal gel which are dispensed in 1ml oral syringes. This dispensing system allows for easy and accurate dosing. Dispense the proper amount of medication prescribed by your physician onto a gloved finger and apply to the inside of your cat’s ear. Methimazole for cats is most commonly dispensed this way then your pet see this as just added affection rather than attempting to get him or her to take a pill.
