Veterinary Compounding

How can veterinary compounding help?

Administering medication to your pets and animals can be a challenge. Since compounding allows for medication to be prepared in various concentrations and flavours (for example beef, chicken, liver, and fish), we see a very high success rate with administering compounded prescriptions to animals. In some cases (most often in cats), we can also compound medications to be applied topically inside the pinna of the ear to avoid giving medication by mouth. Working with you and your veterinarian, we can suggest compounds to meet your individual pet’s needs.

Common veterinary compounds:

Listed below is a sampling of conditions we commonly prepare compounded medications. Even when commercially available products exist to treat these conditions, the dosage form may not be appropriate for the given animal (ex.strength too high/low, tablet difficult to administer, unpleasant taste, etc.,) The list is limitless! 

  • Accidental poisoning
  • Behavioural (obsessive licking, cat spraying, aggression, tail chasing, feather plucking)
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Gastrointestinal (vomiting, diarrhea, constipation)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Infections (bacterial, parasitic)
  • Pain
  • Respiratory problems
  • Thyroid problems
  • Urinary tract infections
