The Compounding Solution
As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats don’t accept pills, but they do like fish. Dogs don’t appreciate a squirt of traditional amoxicillin into their mouth, but they’ll gladly take it if it tastes like chicken. Working closely with a pet owner and a veterinarian, we at Reliant Pharmacy can custom flavor a medication to fit the tastes and preferences of all kinds of animals. There is beef, cheese, chicken and liver for dogs, fish for cats, and alfalfa, cherry, apple, carrot and molasses for horses. Even birds, rodents and reptiles have favorites.
Solving Dosage Problems
Just like their owners, animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes, and may be sensitive to ingredients like lactose. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. This is where compounding is especially helpful. In this situation, your veterinarian can prescribe an alternate Dosage Forms such as Pastes, Custards, or Traditional Pet Biscuits and Treats. Cats are notorious for eating right around a pill disguised in food. But the right combination of flavor and appearance can take the struggle out of medicating your Pets.

PET MEDICATION DISCONTINUED OR NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET?
From time to time, a manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. Often this is because it is not needed in the vast quantities necessary to make mass production cost effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it. Reliant Pharmacy has resources to find those missing formulas. Many times Reliant Pharmacists can recreate a discontinued medication. We can even put that formula into a different dose form if that’s what the pet needs.
Some manufactured medicines only come one way or in strengths not suitable for all animals. We know that “one size does not fit all.” Need a concentrated dosage for a pocket pet or bird? Or a smaller increment for a larger animal? We create “pet friendly” dose sizes to assure animal acceptance. This is a benefit to pet owner and veterinarian alike.
