Compounding pharmacies also compound medications for pets, something that can be a lifesaver if your pet has a specific requirement in delivery or dosage. Besides, how much does you enjoy getting a pet to swallow a pill? We can compound medications for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, ferrets, reptiles, horses, farm animals, and even the animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo.
Most importantly, just as with humans, major drug manufacturers sometimes discontinue drugs not because they are ineffective, but because they are not cost effective. In that case, there are many animals who can still benefit from the drug, but it is no longer available. At Pleasant Hills Apothecary, we’re huge animal lovers and will gladly compound medications for your pets.
