Veterinary Compounding

Compounding is essential in Veterinary Medicine for many reasons. First, there is a lack of approved veterinary drugs available. In addition, some human drugs are inaccessible or no longer available due to the discontinuation of commercial products by manufacturers. Also, the weight and species variations are vast. And finally, many times the patient animal will not take the medication due to taste, volume or smell. Horst Pharmacy can help with all these issues by compounding specific medications for your animal's unique needs, including:

  • Flavor specialization (see complete list of veterinary flavors here)
  • Alternate dosage forms
  • Creams, ointments and lotions
  • Sterile injections
  • Ophthalmic preparations
  • Transdermals
  • Topical powders
  • Topical or Oral gels
  • Chewable flavored troches
  • Inhalation therapy
  • Medicated biscuits or treats
  • Optic solutions and non-aqueous suspensions
  • Otic insufflations
  • Rectal Suppositories
  • Rectal enemas
  • Combination medications
  • Oral suspensions & paste
  • Iontophoretic formulations
  • Sugar-free formulations
