Position: PharmacistYear started: 1999Favorite animal: DogPet(s): A dog named Rueben (co-owned with Jeff Langer)
Removal of allergens/irritants: Occasionally there are inactive ingredients in commercially available pharmaceuticals that are problematic for the patient. For example, a dog with a skin rash might experience further irritation if the topical cream prescribed has an irritant in the cream base. Our Colorado pet pharmacy can often reformulate medications to eliminate allergens and irritants.
Customized strength: Commercially available strengths of pharmaceuticals do not fit all patients. For example, a tiny bird, rodent, or dog might need a much smaller dose than is offered on the market. Likewise a horse, gorilla, or elephant might need a much larger strength than is commercially available. In some instances, pet parents and veterinary techs try unsuccessfully to split an unscored tablet, yielding an inaccurate dose. A can provide custom compounded strengths might help in these situations. Palatability enhancement: Sometimes a patient refuses to take a medication because it tastes bitter or metallic – or just plain icky. Monument Pharmacy has a wide array of palatable options for oral suspensions. Just let us know what flavor your pet prefers!
