Frequently Prescribed Compounded Veterinary Medications

Oct. 11, 2019

Professional compounding is essential to provide optimal medical care to veterinary patients. Based on 1348 prescriptions compounded at a large independent community pharmacy in 2014-2015, the top three drugs that are compounded for veterinary use were potassium bromide oral solution for epilepsy in dogs, methimazole used to treat hyperthyroidism in cats, and metronidazole suspension which is an antibiotic used for the treatment of diarrhea and other infections in dogs and cats. However, the possibilities are endless, so bring us your medication problems!

We personalize medications in the best dose, dosage form and flavor for each animal, and look forward to working with pet owners and veterinarians to improve therapeutic outcomes.
