Compounded prescriptions require a much higher level of communication between the pharmacist and the prescriber when compared to conventional medications. Compounding provides the ability to address a patient’s needs, and address any sensitivities, allergies or other restrictions if they exist. To facilitate this process, we use a collaborative approach. We work as a team with our veterinarian partners, their patients, and our pharmacists to meet the individual needs of the patient. Open communication between all parties ensures that the patient is receiving the appropriate medication in the appropriate way.
