Why your veterinarian might prescribe a compounded medication.
Veterinarian are trained to prescribe the best solution for a particular symptom or issue. Compounding gives the veterinarian the ability to customize the correct treatment (strength, dosage, flavor and form) for a particular circumstance.
Compounded medications are prescribed when a veterinarian determines that the appropriate treatment is not otherwise available from a pharmaceutical manufacturer, or is not available in the strength, dosage form, flavor, or package size the veterinarian thinks is necessary for treatment. When your veterinarian calls a prescription into PenCol Specialty Pharmacy, a pharmacist prepares a medication that meets the individual needs of your pet. Read more in “What is Compounding”.
