Precision Medicine for Personalized Patient Care

Customized medicine for Animals

The practice of pharmacy compounding is an innovative and growing field for treating veterinary problems by simply extending customized medicine to today’s pet owners. Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans can have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Medicating pets presents unique problems that often are best dealt with through compounding.

Custom Dosages

As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages can be very tricky with dogs – a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a six-pound Yorkie to handle. Large and exotic pets pose many unique medication challenges. Archway Apothecary is equipped to help them all!

Meat flavors & biscuits

The pet who refuses to take medication because of the taste is a prime opportunity for compounding. Cats don’t like pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs don’t appreciate a traditional solution of medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll take it gladly when it’s flavored with meat or part of a tasty biscuit or treat. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution. By working closely with your veterinarian, a compounding pharmacist can prepare medicines in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals happily devour, whether your pet is a cat, dog, bird, ferret, or snake. Veterinary compounding provides an innovative solution for veterinary health.

Flavors

Trying to get an animal to take medicine can prove to be a difficult and timely task. Cats don’t like swallowing capsules, but they love eating tuna. Dogs don’t like liquid medicine, but they do like meat-­‐ and cheese-­‐flavored treats.
