Veterinary Compounding Pharmacy for Pets: Enhancing Treatment Options

At The Prescription Shoppe, we understand that every pet is unique, and so are their medical needs. Our veterinary compounding services are critical in providing tailored healthcare solutions for various animal species. Veterinary compounding offers an invaluable partnership for veterinarians and pet owners, ensuring each pet receives personalized care.


Customized Medication Solutions for Diverse Animal Needs


Our team of skilled pharmacists specializes in customizing medications to match the specific needs of different animals. We can alter the flavour and size of doses to make them more appealing to pets, whether liver-flavoured chews for dogs and cats or specialized wound care treatments for exotic and zoo animals. This customization is vital, especially when dealing with fussy eaters or animals that are difficult to medicate.

The decline in available veterinary drug products has posed significant challenges in animal healthcare. Veterinarians often find themselves needing more treatment options due to the unavailability of specific drugs. The Prescription Shoppe fills this gap by compounding drugs that are no longer commercially available. We provide medications in strengths and dosage forms that are ideally suited to the needs of veterinarians and their clients. Our compounding services cover a broad spectrum of veterinary care areas, including:

  • Anti-Infective Agents

  • Behavioural Medicine

  • Cardiovascular/Hypertension

  • Dermatologic Therapy

  • Endocrine Disorders

  • Pain Management

  • Poisoning/Toxicosis

  • Seizure Control

  • Urologic Issues

  • Wound Care


How Our Pharmacists Support Our Pet Patients


At The Prescription Shoppe, we view our compounding service as a complementary aid to local veterinarians, not competition. Compounding empowers veterinarians to extend their prescribing capabilities, offering patient-specific dosage forms in the required strength and formulation. The primary goal is to enhance veterinarians' ability to treat their patients more effectively and efficiently.

Compounding can significantly simplify the process of medicating animals. Our pharmacists can prepare flavoured chews readily accepted by pets, reducing the stress and uncertainty of dosing. For instance, administering a tranquillizer to a feral cat becomes more manageable with a liver-flavoured chew, minimizing the risks of over- or underdosing. An additional chew can be given safely if the initial dose is ineffective.

The shrinking list of commercially available veterinary medications has been a significant concern in animal healthcare. As manufacturers withdraw no longer economically viable products, the range of ready-made veterinary medications narrows. Currently, the selection of animal-specific medicines could be better. For example, cherry-flavoured amoxicillin or orange-flavoured cephalexin may not suit a cat or monkey. Our compounding services at The Prescription Shoppe bridge this gap, ensuring that pets have access to the medications they need in an effective and acceptable form.
