Why Use a Compounding Pharmacy?


Often we find that our patients need special medications.  Pets come in all different sizes, and yet we often have to rely on medications made for humans to treat our patients.  To specially prepare medications in the microdoses that we often need, or to prepare them in forms that are easier to administer, we rely on Compounding Pharmacies.  Compounding pharmacists prepare special medications for individual patients, when a standardized from is not manufactured by regular drug companies.  By flavoring medications, or making them into transdermal forms, they can help our clients to get the much needed medications into our patients.
