For “pet parents”, owning a pet means veterinary care and possibly the need for medications.
Many medications that veterinarians need to optimize an animal’s care are not available in the form and strength appropriate for your pet. With limited options, most turn to a compounding pharmacist for help.
Anyone who has ever tried to give a pill to a cat knows about stress—and not just to the cat! Changing the delivery route of a specific medication will help increase benefits, reduce negative side effects, and reduce the stress on a pet.
Transdermal gels are a favorite for cat owners. Specific gel forms have been developed that have the ability to transport most medications through the skin directly into the bloodstream. Doses are measured from a syringe for accuracy and the pet owner merely rubs the gel into the inner surface of the ear.
Flavored suspensions and chewable treats are other great options to consider for your pet!! Visit Pine Pharmacy for customized options.
