Benefits of Compounding – PATIENTS
Individuals are unique and may not benefit from a one-size fits all approach to prescribing and delivering medicine. When necessary, we mix drugs to achieve the correct dosage, strength, form, formulation, and flavor for a customized designer drug that meets your needs.
Special Needs Dosage Form – Are you experiencing side effects or not responding to therapy? You may need a change in dosage form. We can work with you and your doctor to compound the needed drug(s) into alternative dosage forms, such as transdermal gels, topical sprays, suppositories, lozenges and more.
Combination Preparations – We can combine certain drugs into a single dosage form to simplify dosing schedule. This will make it easier on you, and improve your ability to take your medicine as prescribed.
Unavailable Medications When a medication is out of stock or temporarily unavailable, we can usually obtain the needed drug.
Flavoring If you or your child hates taking medication because of the taste, we can flavor medicine and eliminate bad aftertastes.
Elimination of Problem-Causing Excipients Suffering allergic reactions to your medication? We can formulate medications to eliminate unnecessary dyes, sugar, gluten, lactose, alcohol, and preservatives.

Benefits of Compounding – VETERINARY
We can offer unique solutions by compounding specialized medications which meet the unique needs of your pets.
Flavored Medication - Trying to administer medication to an animal is not always easy. We prepare medications in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals devour.
Medicine in the Ideal Size and Strength – We make medicine easier to administer and often more economical, unlike many commercial animal medications available in only one size or strength. We can create a preparation which contains the most appropriate dosage for a specific animal.
Medicine in the Right Form – We can compound numerous dosage forms that are just right for specific animals from medicated chewable treats to liquid concentrates, from ear drops to dusting powders. The active ingredient can usually be administered by various routes. (oral, transdermal, optic, etc.)
Transdermal Medications – Have you ever thought of applying a transdermal preparation to the inside of an animals ear or another hairless area as an alternate route for systemic absorption? Its quick and easy, and many medications are compatible with transdermal bases. We can also prepare topical medications for application at the site of inflammation or infection.
Unavailable Medications – Manufacturers often stop producing medicines and dosage forms which are unprofitable to market due to low demand. We can obtain the necessary pharmaceutical grade chemicals, and from them compound individualized dosage forms that may be superior to the discontinued formulation.
Combinations Needed – The ideal preparation may need to contain several ingredients to treat a variety of symptoms. For example, an animal may have skin problems that do not respond to a single-ingredient preparation. Yet using three medicines from separate containers can be inconvenient and costly. We can compound the needed medications into a single, easy-to-use preparation.
Novel Devices and Delivery Systems – In addition to customized medications, we offer a variety of unique dispensing devices to simplify administration and improve compliance. For example, oral and topical syringes provide a means of accurately measuring and administering medication, and are useful when the dose is fluctuating. A dauber bottle is excellent for topical application, such as painting medication on nails.
