Pets are animal family members that deserve the best medications

According to the CDC, owning pets has many health benefits including decreased blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and symptoms of PTSD.

Even without the CDC telling us, we know this to be true with how our pets brighten up our lives. When it comes to caring for our furry family, we should take the time to look for the best possible ways to get them their medicine.

This is where compounded pet medication from Community Clinical Pharmacy comes in.

Flavors & Forms of Pet Meds

One of the biggest reasons for compounding medicine for your pets is that it comes in flavors and dosage forms that are easier for your pet to accept and for you to administer to them. Depending on your pet, the flavors can range from chicken, grilled beef, fish, liver, and so on for cats and dogs. While herbivores like horses may have flavors like alfalfa, apple, molasses, Cherry-Ade, and more. With all those flavors, you can turn an otherwise uncomfortable experience for you and your pets into a treat!

What are the forms that pet medications can be compounded?

Customized forms can be formulated by pharmacists in a medicated cream, suppository, chewable tablet, oral liquid, injectables, transdermal patches, and so on. Making your pet take a form of medicine that they’re not comfortable taking can be very difficult, leading to biting, wasting medication, and other challenges.

The forms that compounded medications are made into help with compliance or otherwise help make it easier to apply or administer the medicine.

What Are Some Common Compounded Pet Medications?

There are a number of different medications that animals may need. Here are some examples of common forms for different types of pets:

  • Cats/Feline: Glipizide which is used for diabetes can take the form of a chew treat, oral suspension, or a transdermal gel.
  • Dogs/Canine: Spironolactone, used for congestive heart failure can be provided in the form of chew treats, capsules, oral suspensions, and more.
  • Horses/Equine: Ivermectin which is used for skin disorders can be in the form of a topical ointment
  • Rabbits/Lagomorphs: The antibacterial enrofloxacin can take the form of an oral paste, gummy, oral gel, capsule, tablet, and more.
  • Birds: Amikacin which addresses bacterial infection can be formulated as a topical spray or topical gel.

With so many forms that the medicine can take, compounded pet medications make compliance not only easier but also prevents pets from associating the medication as an unpleasant experience that may make them avoid you.
