Animals and pets are an important parts of our lives. That is why McDermott Pharmacy provide veterinary compounding services to pet owners, veterinarians and animal-care professionals. We will work hand in hand with your veterinarian to compound medications into a customized dosage strength, flavor or form for your pet.
McDermott Pharmacy can compound a prescription for a capsule with just the right amount of the drug, adjusting it according to your pet’s weight and health factors. We can also use the smallest capsule possible making it easier for your pet to swallow.
At McDermott Pharmacy we know the importance of flavoring, especially with cats. We can take a drug with a bitter taste and compound it into a sardine or tuna flavor that cats love or to a sweet taste which dogs enjoy. Our flavors include beef, liver, chicken, tuna, cheese, sardines, bacon, fruits, vegetables, peanut butter and many more.
For pets that have trouble swallowing we can compound medications into a topical cream that can be rubbed onto your pet’s skin. This delivers the medication directly into the bloodstream minimizing the risk of any side effects.
