Compounding

sometimes one size does not fit all!

We can do the same for your pet by compounding medication into a favorite flavor such as beef or fish.

About Compounding...

Preparation of specialized medications requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most pharmacies. We have access to complete resources for fine chemicals, equipment, devices and flavors. We strive to keep up-to-date on new research and innovations in the pharmacy compounding field.

Compounding pharmacies are types of pharmacies that prepare special medications by mixing (or compounding) raw ingredients. In the 1920s and 30s, a majority of the medications were made by pharmacists for a specific patient. Although today, compounded prescriptions only represent about 1% of all prescription drugs.

Compounding has had a significant evolution in the last 10 years or so. New technology allows a pharmacist to prepare custom prescriptions with total confidence in quality control. There have been recent certification standards created by a number of non-profit organizations. As well, more companies are offering quality control testing of compounded products and pharmacists have access to classes about new compounding techniques. Finally, a number of leading organizations are garnering evidence-based and health outcome data to demonstrate safety and efficacy of various drug profiles.
