Compounding Veterinary Medications for Cats and Dogs

Welcome to Choice Pharmacy and Compounding Center in Brandon, FL, where we take pride in our commitment to the health and well-being of every member of your family – including your beloved pets. In this blog post, we’ll explore the fascinating world of compounding veterinary medications, tailored to meet the unique needs of your furry friends.

The Challenge of Pet Medication

Caring for our pets is a responsibility we hold close to our hearts. When they are unwell, ensuring they receive the right medication is paramount. However, administering medications to cats and dogs can be quite challenging. Our furry companions come in all shapes, sizes, and temperaments, making it difficult to find a one-size-fits-all solution. This is where compounding comes to the rescue.

What is Compounding?

Compounding is the process of customizing medications to suit the specific needs of an individual patient. In veterinary medicine, this practice involves creating medications that are tailored to your pet’s unique requirements. Whether it’s adjusting the dosage, changing the form of the medication, or eliminating allergenic ingredients, compounding offers a range of solutions to ensure your pet gets the treatment they need.

Why Choose Compounded Medications for Your Pet?

Precise Dosage: Compounded medications are prepared with precision, ensuring that your pet receives the exact dosage required for their size and condition.

Improved Palatability: We understand that some pets can be picky eaters. Compounded medications can be flavored to make them more appealing, making it easier for your pet to take their medication.

Alternate Forms: Compounded medications can be provided in various forms, such as transdermal gels, chewable treats, or liquids, tailored to suit your pet’s preferences and medical needs.

Allergen Removal: If your pet has allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients, compounding allows us to exclude these allergens from their medication.

Common Uses of Compounded Veterinary Medications

Pain Management: Compounded pain medications can be flavored to ease administration and improve the comfort of your pet.

Skin Conditions: For pets with skin conditions, compounded topical creams or ointments can target specific areas, delivering relief where it’s needed.

Thyroid Medications: Compounding allows for precise dosing, which is especially important for thyroid medications in cats.

Anti-Anxiety Medications: We can create custom anti-anxiety treatments, which can be essential for pets with anxiety disorders.

Hypoallergenic Treats: For pets with food allergies, we can compound hypoallergenic treats and medications to ensure their safety and comfort.
