Humans are not the only ones with medication challenges; we compound for animals as well! Compounding allows Las Colinas Pharmacy to be an invaluable asset to pet owners and veterinarians. Veterinary compounding is a specialized field requiring extensive training, equipment, and chemicals not found in traditional pharmacies. Our advanced training enables us to provide solutions for difficult animal medication problems.
When your pet enjoys the taste of his medication, it improves compliance. We flavor medicines that are appealing to animals such as fish or tuna for cats, beef or peanut butter for dogs, tutti fruitti for birds, and banana for exotics. We can combine several medications into a single convenient preparation. We can also prepare the medication in a different form such as a transdermal gel that can easily be rubbed into the inside of your pet’s ear. Sometimes a novel delivery system like accordion-like puffers for applying powder to difficult-to-reach areas or dauber bottles for painting medication on a hoof is required. We are trained to think of alternate delivery methods and can offer many unique solutions.
Sometimes a medicine is discontinued or unavailable in the strength or dose that is best for a particular animal. We can solve those problems as well! Using the finest chemicals and specialized equipment, we can prepare a medication in just the right strength, size and form for your pet.
We can customize treatments to fit any animal, from snakes to whales and everything in between. We have helped thousands of animals, including:
- Reptiles and Snakes
- Ferrets and Guinea Pigs
- Mice and Rats
- Skunks and Raccoons and many others!
We will work in conjunction with your veterinarian to expand the available treatment options for all your furry and feathered friends.
