To many people, their pets are considered a part of the family and are treated as such. When something is wrong with the health of your loved one you take them to the doctor’s office and expect they will be cared for in the most efficient and compassionate way. The same standard is held when your family pet is sick and you take them to the vet. In situations where your pet is diagnosed with a particular health ailment that requires follow up or routine treatments, a compounding pharmacy can be extremely helpful.
As you may already know, animals are susceptible to many of the same or variations of the same diseases that humans are. In more recent years, compound pharmacies have been able to step in and play a role in easing the discomfort of your pet through the customized distribution of medications. Wouldn’t life be so much easier if you could eliminate the stress and anxiety from your pet when it’s time for them to take their medicine?
At Pawleys Island Compounding Pharmacy, Dr. Lewis Waldrep will work hand in hand with your veterinarian to ensure that all of your pet’s needs are being met. Lewis can combine medications and even add a delicious flavor to them, masking the terrible odor and taste. Another option is utilizing a different method of distribution. He can create a treatment that can be administered through topical or transdermal application on the inner flap of the ear or even create a flavored substance that can be applied to the foreleg or most popular grooming location. Also, unlike manufactured drugs, Lewis can customize the dosage of the medication to accommodate your pet’s needs even those exotic pets that require extra attention to detail.
