Compounding For Pets

Compounding For Pets

Pets can be pretty picky when it comes to taking medicine! It's also important to take their specific breed, weight and overall individuality into consideration when giving them medicine. We keep this in mind when compounding medication for pets. Working closely with veterinarians, we can provide compounds that offer more options and uniqueness than what is commercially available. Some options that we provide in our compounding lab include topical gel for hyperthyroidism, oral liquid for epilepsy, suspensions for rhabdomyolysis in horses and antibiotics and antifungals for infections. These can all be made into desirable treats for the pets so they are more likely to take them! We love interacting with animals at Pure Integrative Pharmacy! Seeing happy pets and pet-owners brings us immense joy. As part of your family your pets deserve the same advanced level of health care.

Compounding is the practice of preparing customized medication for patients. Medication compounding for pets is becoming increasingly popular as vets and pet owners realize that animals require the same individualized care as people and suffer from similar problems related to pharmaceutical medications. A caring vet, in partnership with a Pure Pharmacy, compounding can drastically improve the health of your pet by providing the highest quality medications in a customized form, dosage, or flavour. Compounding solutions are available for nearly every type of pet, including: dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds, reptiles, etc.

Pure Pharmacy is able to prepare medication compounds in a variety of dosage forms and flavouring options.

There are a number of reasons to consider compounding your pet’s medicine. If your pet refuses to swallow a pill, a compounding pharmacist can turn your pet’s medication into a tasty treat. If your pet is sensitive or allergic to an ingredient used in a commercial skin cream, a customized cream can be prepared for your pet. Skin rashes, eye and ear infections, and allergies are just a few of the common reasons pet owners turn to compounding. Medication forms available include: powders, capsules, treats, gels, ointments, lotions, creams, sprays, liniments and inhalers. Treating animals with medications presents many unique and challenging problems. Compounding is a convenient way to manage your pet’s special requirements. If a medication becomes discontinued or commercially available medications are not suitable for your pet, compounding can help.

If your pet requires only one third the normal dosage size, we can create a customized pill in the correct dosage. We can offer a solution to please even the most finicky and particular pet.

Our pharmacists have specialized training in veterinary compounding and access to specific veterinary formulations and references. At Pure Pharmacy, we treat your pet’s health with the same respect and care that we would any other member of your family.
