What We Specialize In
it defeats the “one-size-fits-all’ medication concept of drug manufacturers. Rather, compounding is a combination of the specialized technique of mixing drug powders and other components and creating it into actual dosage-forms such as capsules, creams, solutions, or suppositories that is customized to what the patient truly needs. The demand for professional compounding increased as the healthcare providers realized there is a limited number of medications and doses available for unique or hard to treat conditions. compounding involves a working relationship among the provider, patient, and pharmacist to identify a solution to the problem whether it would be to improve patient compliance, to improve the palatability of a medication, or to offer an alternative, to commercially available medications.

compounding is any manipulation of a drug beyond that described on the drug label. Manipulation might include mixing, diluting, concentrating, flavoring, or changing a drug's dosage form. Veterinary drugs should only be compounded based on a licensed veterinarian's prescription, and to meet the medical needs of a specific patient.
Compounding is usually necessary when an animal is suffering from a medical condition and there is no FDA-approved human or veterinary product available and medically appropriate to treat the patient.
Compounded medications should only be prepared using FDA-approved drugs that have been crushed, had a flavor added or otherwise changed from the original form. If they are made from ingredients that are not already approved by FDA for humans or animals, then FDA considers these preparations to be "new animal drugs," which are required to have FDA approval in order to be legally sold.
No, they are not the same. A generic drug is a non-proprietary-name version of a drug. In general, buying a non-proprietary drug with the same ingredient and same strength as the brand name is equivalent to (but often cheaper than) buying the brand name version.
Common examples of appropriate compounding in veterinary practice are mixing two injectable drugs, preparing an oral paste or suspension from crushed tablets or adding flavoring to a drug.
There is no assurance, like there is with an FDA-approved drug, that a compounded medication will be safe or effective for an animal's medical condition.
No. Only a veterinarian can prescribe a compounded medication for an animal. Any unlawful practices, such as providing compounded medications without a valid prescription, should be reported to the state board of pharmacy.
We formulate combinations of pharmaceutical grade ingredients, as prescribed by a verterinarian, into specific dosage forms such as sterile eyedrops, sterile ointments, capsules, creams, custom oral liquids, suppositories and other forms.
