How hard is it to get your cat to swallow a pill?
Well, we all know the answer to that – pretty hard. Many cats eat right around the veterinary medicine and pills, even when disguised in their favorite food. Compounding cat drugs, as well as other pet medications, may help with improving compliance and making everyone’s life easier!
What is a Compounded Pet Medication?
A compounded pet medication is veterinary medicine that is custom made based on the unique needs of your small animal pet. Be it a cat, dog or other small animal, pet meds are prescribed by your veterinarian when a proprietary medication is not available. Hoye’s Pharmacy can compound pet meds in the appropriate strength, dosage form, or flavor that your pet needs to ensure compliance and the safest delivery possible. After all, pets are as unique as humans and can benefit from the customized individual care that compounded medication can provide.
