Your pets are special. Why not give them customized care?

As a pet owner, you want your pet to receive the highest-quality veterinary care.

You want them to have treatment as sophisticated and compassionate as you might receive yourself. You’re not alone. Today’s veterinarians realize that pet owners are very knowledgeable, and expect a more advanced level of care.

Why should you consider compounding as a solution for your pet’s medical problems?

That can be answered with another question: how hard is it to get your cat to swallow a pill?

 

Veterinary Compounding – making medication a treat for your pet.

The practice of pharmacy compounding is becoming a popular solution to veterinary problems. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. Its resurgence in recent years extends valuable benefits to today’s pet owners. Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans can have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Medicating pets presents unique problems that often are best dealt with through compounding.

 

The Compounding Solution

As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages can be very tricky with dogs – a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a six-pound Yorkie to handle. Large and exotic pets pose many unique medication challenges. A compounding pharmacist is equipped to help them all!

  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Horses
  • Rabbits
  • Birds
  • Ferrets
  • Reptiles
  • Even animals in zoos and aquariums!

 

Flavored Medicine

Pets who refuse to take medication because of the taste are a prime opportunity for compounding. Cats don’t like pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs don’t appreciate a traditional solution of medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll take it gladly when it’s flavored with meat or part of a tasty treat. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution. By working closely with your veterinarian, a compounding pharmacist can prepare medicines in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals happily devour, whether your pet is a cat, dog, bird, ferret, or snake.

 

Solving Dosage Problems

Just like their owners, animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes, and may be sensitive to ingredients like lactose. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. That’s where compounding is especially helpful. In this situation, your veterinarian can prescribe a flavored liquid, treat, or other dosage form with the amount of medication that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition.

 

Commercially Unavailable Medicine

From time to time, a manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. Often this is because it is not needed in the vast quantities necessary to make mass production cost-effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it. When that medication has worked well for animals, a compounding pharmacist can prepare a prescription for the required therapy – and tailor the strength, dosage form, and flavor to that pet’s specific needs.

A caring veterinarian working closely with a compounding pharmacist can improve the health and happiness of your pet.

CFV - Treats

CFV-TREATS are to increase compliance by eliminating the dreaded “pilling” method that most clients find difficult to master. BCP VetChews® are soft, easy to chew, medicated pet treats which are custom compounded to the veterinarian’s specification. Why should your clients struggle to force medications into their pets when BCP Veterinary Pharmacy can compound the exact strength and flavor VetChews® that meets your requirements? You will have happier, more compliant clients with properly medicated pets. VetChews® can be used for short term or long term medication needs. Over the years, imitators have tried to duplicate VetChews®, but let the veterinarian beware, as none can compare to BCP Veterinary Pharmacy’s unique, trademarked VetChews®.

VetChews® may be compounded using a multitude of medications, including such popular veterinary requests as prednisolone, methimazole, metronidazole, trilostane, atenolol, amlodipine, diethylstilbestrol, phenylpropanolamine, cisapride and many more. All medications are evenly distributed throughout the chew so that splitting it in half is possible, if needed. In addition, some medications may be combined in each treat to make administration even easier.

Pets and clients will be happier and greater compliance can be achieved with VetChews® compounded by BCP Veterinary Pharmacy to the exact strength and flavor needed to meet each pet's individual requirements.

 Having access to BCP Veterinary Pharmacy for our compounding needs has been a huge asset to our practice. Their flavor chews are loved by all the animals we treat .

Tablets And Capsules

BCP Veterinary Pharmacy uses both technological skill and encapsulation machines to precisely fill capsules of various sizes with the exact strength of medication that an animal may need. A drug in powder form is enclosed in a non-flavored, hard, gelatinous shell that is easy to swallow and masks any bitter taste. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy can compound most drugs into this capsule form. The capsule size is dependent on the strength of the drug required. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy always prepares the smallest capsule possible and can sometimes combine several medications, making administration easier and more efficient for both the animals and their owners.

Suspensions

When compounding a medication it is the solubility of drug that determines whether it is a suspension or a solution. If a drug is insoluble yet stable in a liquid, it can be compounded into a suspension. In a suspension, the drug is first coated, preventing it from adhering together, then it is added to the liquid. This process enables even dispersion of the drug throughout the entire volume and more accurate dosing. If a drug is soluble and stable in a liquid, it is compounded into a solution. Flavoring is then added to the final preparation making it palatable to the specific animal. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy has numerous flavors to please even the most finicky pets.

 The addition of flavors to the medications aids in client compliance, helping owners to administer medication like a treat.” .

Transdermals

BCP Veterinary Pharmacy has had great success with increased compliance through its compounding of PLO transdermal gels. By using PLO transdermal technology, BCP Veterinary Pharmacy is able to custom compound numerous drugs that, when applied to the pinna (inside ear flap), provide for the penetration of the drug, in therapeutic amounts, through the skin into systemic circulation. The Pluronic F127, a component of PLO gels, is a polymeric surfactant which enhances the formation of drug micelles in a gel matrix. Pluronic gels have been shown to regulate the release and permeation of numerous drugs through the skin. Lecithin acts as a permeation enhancer by increasing the fluidity of the stratum corneum and, therefore, also increases the penetration of many drugs through the skin. By compounding medications into a gel, using these two components, BCP Veterinary Pharmacy has treated numerous patients suffering from chronic ailments such as heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammatory bowel disease, urinary incontinence, hyperthyroidism, behavioral problems and bacterial infections. If you have an animal that is difficult to medicate orally, transdermal gel may be the alternative you have been searching for.

Transdermal gels may be used as an alternative to oral therapy in many cases. The efficacy of transdermal methimazole in the treatment of 16 cats with hyperthyroidism was evaluated in a study that was reported in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding, Vol.6 No.5, September/October 2002. The results indicate that transdermal methimazole is effective in reducing the serum T4 level in hyperthyroid cats. In addition, a lack of adverse side effects, an increase in client satisfaction and increased compliance were among the benefits cited.

Some of the more popular medications that are available include

    • cisapride
    • enrofloxacin
    • diphenhydramine
    • amitriptyline
    • clomipramine
    • metronidazole
    • prednisone
    • dilitazem
    • amlodipine
    • prednisolone
    • chlorpheniramine
    • phenylpropanolamine
    • methimazole

Transdermal gels are packaged in syringes to make it easy to administer and dispense proper dosages. The animal’s dose is put into the smallest amount of gel possible, usually 0.1ml. The transdermal gel is applied to the animal’s inner pinna. Please advise your clients to wear exam gloves or finger cots, apply each dose to the alternate ear, and wipe away any visible residue prior to the next dosage.

 BCP's capsule formulations are a very helpful and economic option in dosing patients that will not take any other type of medication. .

Dr. Heidi Hottinger

Your pets are special. Why not give them customized care?

As a pet owner, you want your pet to receive the highest-quality veterinary care.

You want them to have treatment as sophisticated and compassionate as you might receive yourself. You’re not alone. Today’s veterinarians realize that pet owners are very knowledgeable, and expect a more advanced level of care.

Why should you consider compounding as a solution for your pet’s medical problems?

That can be answered with another question: how hard is it to get your cat to swallow a pill?

 

Veterinary Compounding – making medication a treat for your pet.

The practice of pharmacy compounding is becoming a popular solution to veterinary problems. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. Its resurgence in recent years extends valuable benefits to today’s pet owners. Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans can have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Medicating pets presents unique problems that often are best dealt with compounding.

 

The Compounding Solution

As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages can be very tricky with dogs – a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a six-pound Yorkie to handle. Large and exotic pets pose many unique medication challenges. A compounding pharmacist is equipped to help them all!

  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Horses
  • Rabbits
  • Birds
  • Ferrets
  • Reptiles
  • Even animals in zoo and aquariums!

 

Flavored Medicine

The pet who refuses to take medication because of the taste is a prime opportunity for compounding. Cats don’t like pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs don’t appreciate a traditional solution of medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll gladly take it when it’s flavored with meat or part of a tasty biscuit or treat. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution. By working closely with your veterinarian, a compounding pharmacist can prepare medicines in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals happily devour, whether your pet is a cat, dog, bird, ferret, or snake.

 

Solving Dosage Problems

Just like their owners, animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes, and may be sensitive to ingredients like lactose. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. That’s where compounding is especially helpful. In this situation, your veterinarian can prescribe a flavored liquid, treat, or other dosage form with the amount of medication that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition.

 

Commercially Unavailable Medicine

From time to time, a manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. Often this is because it is not needed in the vast quantities necessary to make mass production cost-effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it. When that medication has worked well for animals, a compounding pharmacist can prepare a prescription for the required therapy – and tailor the strength, dosage form, and flavor to that pet’s specific needs.

A caring veterinarian working closely with a compounding pharmacist can improve the health and happiness of your pet.
