There is no denying that as Pharmacists, we are the “drug experts” and work hard to be knowledgeable about all the medications and drug therapies we provide. Although we don’t expect you to be an expert we do find that the more knowledge you have about your companion animal’s drug therapy, the better care you can provide because the more involved you can become in their care. To help you with this role we try to create drug information that is appropriate for the custom compounded medications that we prepare so that as that animal’s caregiver, you can gain appropriate knowledge so that you can help your companion get the most benefit as well as minimize the potential side effects or adverse reactions. The following is a short list of short counseling handouts that we try to make sure is made available when you are in the pharmacy to pickup the medication.
In case you didn’t get a copy or misplaced the print version, the following are links to the information we currently have on our files. We do try to expand our library of counseling handouts understanding that the topics are limited to the formulations that we do prepare from day to day. If you are looking for more general information about a particular disease or a specific formulation, navigate to our Veterinary Medicine page or use our search utility to find the information that might best meet your needs.
