What is a compound?
It is a process by which a pharmacist prepares drugs by combining, mixing, or altering ingredients into a pharmaceutical preparation. These preparations are designed to be administered by a route that does not require sterility, in accordance with a practitioner’s prescription drug order.

CO-DIRECTOR OF COMPOUNDING
Dermatology compounding is the combination of any number of medications that are specifically formulated to help treat, control, or manage a particular problem or concern a patient would have with their skin.
A custom made prescription that can be tailored to your child’s needs. We can take your concerns, problem solve, and create a version of the medication that your child can tolerate, without altering its effectiveness.
WHAT IS A VET COMPOUND?
A vet compound is any prescription medication that is formulated specifically for your pet! Using the compounding method, we are able to make the medication at any particular strength for your animal. We can also make it into other formulations so that it is easier to get your pet to take their medication. Ask us about our many flavoring options too!
