Occasionally prescriptions are written for dosages not readily available or for medical compounds that require mixing.
For example, hormone replacement therapy drugs are tailored to the patient's specific needs. Also, many of our capsules, suspensions, syrups, suppositories and creams can be prepared preservative free and dye free for patients who may suffer from these types of allergies. We also can combine medicines into one cream for patients needing multiple topical drugs to treat a problem, simplifying the healing process.
Some medicinal compounds are no longer manufactured in bulk by drug manufacturers due to low demand. These have to be produced on an individual basis as needed by our customers.
Vet prescriptions are written for a range of animal weights and sometimes require adjusting to ensure the proper dosage for an animal's breed and size.
