Medicating Your Pet: A Daily Struggle
Of all the time we spend with our beloved pets, medication time is among our least favorite. You can be almost positive that your pet shares this opinion.
Medicating your cat is often a physical struggle that if done incorrectly, may traumatize the animal, and may lead to bites and scratches on your arm! Medicating your dog tends to be much easier, providing you hide the medication in a favorite 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 Lauden Pharmacy offers you 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
Lauden Pharmacy can reduce the need to hide your dog’s medicine in unhealthy treats. We can provide your dog’s medication in the form of tasty, custom-flavored liquid. These treats mask the taste (and smell) of your pet’s medication.
Feline medications 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 impulses do the rest.
