What is Compounding?
Compounding is the practice of customizing or creating medications that meet the unique needs of our patients and their health care providers.
Compounding is used when commercially manufactured products don't fit the patient's needs or are not available. For example, small enough doses may not be commercially available for a child or small animal or in a form they can tolerate.
Common dosing forms include:
Transdermal Products - lotions, creams, ointments
Compounding allows for the introduction of more palatable scents and flavors (our canine patients adore liver flavor). It allows us to create formulas free of dies and other potential allergens. Compounding enables practitioners to prescribe medications that are in short supply or no longer commercially available as well as those not available in the needed dose. Compounding creates a three way partnership between the prescriber, patient and the pharmacist to ensure that patients receive the best possible solutions to difficult medication problems.
We Are Accredited!
PCAB® Accreditation is an additional, voluntary step to ensure we meet the compounding pharmacy profession’s most rigorous review and inspection measures. To earn the designation "PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy," we completed an extensive application that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. Our compounding policies and procedures were then reviewed by professionals. Next, we opened our doors for an extensive on-site inspection led by compounding experts. Our pharmacy was awarded accreditation only when these stringent evaluations were completed and our pharmacy was deemed compliant with PCAB’s quality and safety standards.
