Humans are not the only ones with medication challenges; we compound for animals as well! Compounding allows Better Living Medical to be an invaluable asset to pet owners and veterinarians. Veterinary compounding is a specialized field requiring extensive training, equipment, and chemicals not found in traditional pharmacies. Our advanced training enables us to provide solutions for difficult animal medication problems.
When your pet enjoys the taste of his medication, it improves compliance. We flavor medicines that are appealing to animals such as fish or tuna for cats, and beef or peanut butter for dogs. We can combine several medications into a single convenient preparation. We can also prepare the medication in a different form such as a transdermal gel that can easily be rubbed into the inside of your pet’s ear. Sometimes a novel delivery system like accordion-like puffers for applying powder to difficult-to-reach areas or dauber bottles for painting medication on a hoof is required. We are trained to think of alternate delivery methods and can offer many unique solutions.
Sometimes a medicine is discontinued or unavailable in the strength or dose that is best for a particular animal. We can solve those problems as well! Using the finest chemicals and specialized equipment, we can prepare a medication in just the right strength, size and form for your pet.
