When To Compound For Veterinary Medicine

Compounding medications for companion animals is essential in these instances:

  • Your first line therapy fails
  • A commercially manufactured medication is on backorder or discontinued
  • Your animal has a medical necessity which requires an alternative dosage form or strength be utilized, outside of what is commercially available
  • Your animal has an allergy or side effect to a commercially available product
  • The medical condition and/or medical history of the animal, is such, that it requires the use of multiple therapies combined into one medication
