Take care of your furry, feathery, or scaley family!
If you’ve ever had to give your cat a dose of medicine, you know that it can go sideways quickly. While no cat enjoys the process, some might be more cooperative depending on how the drug is given. For example, some cats tolerate taking pills easier than liquid, while others make the pill-giving process into a battle royale. Thankfully, your veterinarian can ask a compounding pharmacist to change that FDA-approved pill into a liquid for your finicky feline. Some common instances where veterinarians may recommend compounding are:
- Creating an oral medication from tablets or injectable solutions
- Adding flavoring
- Mixing solutions into eardrops
- Reformulating a medication to remove a harmful ingredient (such as an allergen)
