Compounding Pharmacies

Compounding pharmacies are available in many cities, both locally and across the nation. We will use compounding pharmacies for two main reasons. The most important is that we are able to prescribe the exact dose of medication your pet needs. This is handy for medications that are not available in your pet’s size or if your pet has issues with the currently available size. The other reason we use compounding pharmacies is to change the currently available formulation of a medication into one that is easier to give your pet. Depending on the medication, it can be made into capsules, chewables, liquids, or transdermal creams.

Below are the compounding pharmacies we use most frequently at the Cancer Center. If you have a different pharmacy you prefer to use, let us know and we can see if they are an option for your pet’s medications. Not all pharmacies are able to compound medications or compound them effectively. Even if they offer compounding services, some are not able to safely compound all medications we use for patients. All the pharmacies below will contact you prior to making your pet’s prescription to take payment and let you know when it will be ready.
