Sterile Compounding Solutions

When a veterinary medication is no longer made by the manufacturer or an animal is unable to take a medication in the form that is commercially available, a Veterinarian will contact LowCountry Compounding Solutions to provide solutions to these challenges.

 

LowCountry Compounding Solutions can:

 

  • Customize dosages and strengths of medications
  • Add flavoring to medications to make them more palatable
  • Create alternate dosage forms
  • Compound discontinued or hard-to-find medications


The most common uses for Customized Compounding in Veterinary medicines are as follows:

 

  • Flavored dosage forms that make it easy, even fun, to dose an animal
  • Custom strength medications for seizures, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, parasitic infections, appetite stimulation, etc.
  • Low dose, longer acting insulin
  • Antidotes/treatments for accidental animal poisoning
  • Vitamins and tonics
  • NSAIDS transdermally to avoid GI tract irritation
  • Commercially unavailable, combination, custom-formulated products
  • Protective medicated coatings for wounds or stitches (coatings which are difficult to lick off)
  • Transdermal, anti-inflammation gel for torn ligaments
  • Hard-to-find medication for urinary tract incontinence
  • Transdermal anti-motion sickness medicine which can be applied to outer ear surface
  • Concentrated solutions for birds & reptiles, matching the dose according to the animal’s size
  • Injections and liquids for metal toxicities
  • Combination or fortified ophthalmic formulas
  • “Hairball” remedy for cats
  • Custom shampoo to treat “rain-rot,” a fungal infection in horses

 

The Triad Relationship

 

Veterinarians, Pharmacists, and pet owners work together to improve the lives of animals by formulating ways to make medications that appeal to both pet and owner.  This is called the triad relationship and is considered the foundation of specialized compounded veterinary preparations.

 

When Veterinarians need alternative ways to treat their patients they turn to a licensed compounding pharmacy for medicine problem solving.  Once the medicine is determined, the pet owner, Veterinarian and Pharmacists identify the best delivery option.

 

LowCountry Compounding Solutions acknowledges how important our role is in the triad relationship.  We maintain open and constant communication with Veterinarians and their staff, answering any questions that may arise and aspiring to meet their patients’ needs. Our staff is dedicated to a total approach of professionalism.

 

Transdermal Gels:

 

If you are looking for an alternative to oral medications, transdermal gels may be a delivery form to consider. LowCountry Compounding Solutions can use the active ingredients of a medication and create a gel, which is absorbed through the skin when rubbed into the animal’s ear or a shaved area.

 

Capsules:

 

In some cases, capsules may be an easier medicating option. Encapsulation can be helpful to combine several ingredients. Also, many discontinued or no longer commercially available drugs are compounded into capsule form.

 

Flavor Enhancers:

 

To administer oral liquid medications to an animal more easily, you should consider adding a flavor enhancer to the medication. LowCountry Compounding Solutions has more than 100 flavors available to choose from including fish, liver, beef, chicken, peanut butter, banana and bubble gum. Most common veterinary preparations can be formulated into oral suspensions or solutions.
