Medicating Your Pet: A Daily Struggle

Of all the time we spend with our beloved pets, Guy’s Pharmacy knows that medication time is among our least favorite. You can be reasonably sure that your pet shares this opinion.

Medicating your cat is often a physical struggle that traumatizes the animal, and may lead to bites and scratches for you! Medicating your dog tends to be much easier, providing you hide the medication in a favorite – often unhealthy – treat.

Additionally, some commercially available medicines may not be appropriate for your individual pet. For example, problems can arise with achieving precise dosing for your pet given the limited range of strengths available from a manufacturer, or with a tablet’s size causing swallowing difficulty.

Veterinary Compounding: Reducing the Stress of Medication Time

Veterinary medicine compounding from Guy’s Pharmacy may offer a better way to medicate your pet. Custom medication compounding allows you to give your pet the exact dose they need, in a dosage form that works best for you and your pet. And it may help reduce the daily stress of medication time.

Veterinary Compounding: Medication and Supplement Alternatives

Guy’s Pharmacy can reduce the need to hide your dog’s medicine in fatty treats. We can provide your dog’s medication in the form of a tasty, custom-flavored liquid. These treats mask the taste and smell of your pet’s medication.

Feline formulations include topical preparations that can be rubbed into the membranes of the ear. We can also prepare meat-flavored pastes that can be placed on the foreleg. The cat’s natural grooming impulse does the rest.
