Veterinary compounding refers to the practice of creating custom medications for different breeds of animals. What works for a horse, for example, probably won't work for a bird.
Pharmaceutical compounding pharmacies and Veterinary clinics work hand in hand with each other to broaden their prescribing abilities, and overall enhance and expand a veterinarian’s ability to treat a patient quickly in the most effective manner.
Pet owners are faced with a unique problem when trying to medicate their animals. Many drugs are not commercially available for animals. Those that are available may be made for certain domestic animals but the strength, dosage form, or taste may not be right for another. Some animals like cats have very finicky taste requiring unique formulation methods to disguise the taste of drugs. Preparation of specialised veterinary drugs requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most pharmacies.
