How Your Dog Can Benefit From Veterinary Compounding

Have you ever considered veterinary compounded medication for you dog? Are you familiar with veterinary compounding and how it can benefit your fur baby? Veterinary compounding consists of creating medications for animals to ensure that they get the specific dosage that fits their unique situation. The Lime in the Coconut is here to give you some key information on how veterinary compounding can benefit your dog.

Why Do Dog's Need Veterinary Compounding?

Have you ever tried to give your dog standard medication? Typically, the standard medication that is prescribed to your dog doesn't taste very good or it's in pill form, which can be quite large and difficult for your dog to swallow. Sometimes, veterinarians may prescribe a particular medication for your pet that's on backorder and not locally available. These are all reasons that veterinary compounding can benefit your fur baby.

"Your pet is unique. Shouldn't his or her medicine be too?"

We Make Medication a Tasty Treat

If you have ever tried to feed your dog pills, you know that most animals hate taking medication. Your dog does not understand the medical benefits, he or she just knows that it does not smell good and it DEFINITELY does not taste good. The Lime in the Coconut has found a solution to this problem. Rather than sneaking your dog's medication into something tasty, like cheese or peanut butter, feed your dog something actually tastes good. 

We can make your pet's medication taste like:

  • Chicken
  • Bacon
  • Beef
  • Shrimp
  • Peanut Butter
  • Banana
  • Fish
  • Salmon
  • Marshmallow
  • Tuna

When your pet's medication is cleverly disguised as a tasty treat, feeding your dog can be a breeze. We can also deliver the medication as a transdermal gel, flavored suspension, suppository, or a flavored capsule ... whichever best fits the needs of your pet. 

In Need of a Compounding Pharmacy That Puts Your Dog's Needs First?

Just like humans, no two animals are alike. We offer compounded medications to ensure that each of our patients get the specific dosage they need for their unique situation, and we don't treat our animal patients any differently. Our experienced compounding pharmacist at the Lake of the Ozarks can design customized dosages to meet your pet's specific needs. 

In some situations, veterinarians may prescribe a particular medication for your pet that's backorder and not locally available. In these situations, our talented pharmacy technicians can mix active ingredients together to create a prescription for an otherwise unavailable (or discontinued) product. If you have a fur-baby at home in need of medicine, give us a call to learn more about our veterinary compounding services at the Lake of the Ozarks. We would be honored to help you care for your beloved animals!
