As a pet owner you want your pet to receive the highest quality of veterinary care and you are well aware that animals may be extremely difficult to treat with medications. For example, cats are notorious for refusing to swallow a tablet. Dosages can also be tricky in dogs due to their varying shapes and sizes.
The pet who refuses to take medication because of the taste is often a prime opportunity for compounding. Because pets come in different shapes and sizes not all commercially made medications are appropriate. Also, sometimes a manufacturer will discontinue a medication.
In these types of situations your veterinarian can prescribe a tuna, liver or chicken flavoured suspension, or a gel that can be applied to an ear with an amount that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition.
