There are some pets and animals that won't respond to traditional methods of treatment. Sometimes they need medicine at strengths that are not manufactured or perhaps the animal needs a different method of ingesting the medication.
Cats don't like pills, but they do like tuna! We can flavour a medicine or compound into a different dosage form so that they will take it.
Dogs don't appreciate a traditional solution of medicine being squirted into their mouth, but they'll take it gladly when it's flavoured with meat or part of a tasty biscuit or treat by our compounding pharmacists.
Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavoured, concentrated solution that we can compound.
Veterinarian compounding meets these needs and provides a way for vets and compounding pharmacists to customise the prescribed medicine. Often changing the flavour of the medication can help when a patient is refusing their medication. Adding flavour such as our popular chicken, bacon, tuna or veal can assist the process by making it more pleasurable for the animal.
Our team of pharmacists and technicians are trained in compounding medicines for such animals. We can compound medicines prescribed by Vets registered in Australia.
