No matter how much positive, enjoyable time is spent with pets, nearly all pet owners agree that administering medication is one of the most unpleasant aspects of ownership. United Pharmacy appreciates that medicating cats can be a physical struggle that traumatizes the animal, and leads to bites and scratches for owners! Medicating dogs tends to be much easier, providing medications are hidden in a favorite (often unhealthy) treat.
Some commercially available medicines may not be appropriate for specific pets. An example of a problem that can arise is achieving a precise dosing for a pet given the limited range of strengths available from a manufacturer, or with a tablet that is too difficult to swallow.
Veterinary Compounding: Reducing The Stress Of Medication Administration
Compounded veterinary medications from United Pharmacy offer a better way to medicate your pet. Custom medication compounding allows for exact dosages, in dosage forms that work best for pets and their owner. This process helps to reduce the daily stress of administering the necessary medications your pet needs.
Veterinary Compounding: Medication & Supplement Alternatives
United Pharmacy can reduce the need to dog medications in fatty treats. We can provide a tasty, custom-flavored liquid that can be poured over food, appropriate pet treats, or administered via dropper… all while masking the taste and smell that most dogs refuse.
