Encouraging an animal to take a medication can be challenging. Cats will not swallow a pill, but they do like fish. Dogs don’t appreciate a squirt of traditional amoxicillin into their mouth, but they’ll gladly take it if it tastes like chicken. Working closely with a pet owner and a veterinarian, we at Reliant Compounded Solutions can custom flavor a medication to fit the individual tastes and preferences of all kinds of animals. Try beef, cheese, chicken, or liver for dogs, fish for cats, and alfalfa, cherry, apple, carrot, or molasses for horses. Even birds, rodents, and reptiles have favorite flavors.
Just like people, animals’ needs and tastes are individual and unique. Animals come in different shapes and sizes, and they may be sensitive to fillers and other excipients, such as lactose. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every animal. A veterinarian can prescribe an alternate dosage form such as pastes, custards, or treats and our compounding pharmacy can create the right combination of flavor and appearance to take the struggle out of medicating your pets.
Pet medication discontinued or no longer available in the market? From time to time, a manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. Often this is because it is not needed in the vast quantities necessary to make mass production cost-effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it. Reliant Compounded Solutions can compound a discontinued medication into the dose and dosage form an animal needs.
