Did you know that we not only provide human compounding services but also veterinary compounding? That’s right – your pet can receive customized medications for their unique situation. We firmly believe that pets are part of the family too and require the same level of care. Here are 3 things to know about our veterinary compounding pharmacy:

1. We are accredited and thoroughly trained in veterinary compounding.

Stark Pharmacy has been a veterinary compounding pharmacy since 1966, and we are accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. Our compounding lab is a state-of-the-art space with the best equipment available, and our pharmacists uphold the highest standards of safety and quality, never cutting corners to ensure the best products possible. We are also members of both the American College of Apothecaries and the American College of Veterinary Pharmacists, so our staff is trained and thoroughly tested in the area of veterinary compounding.

2. We provide personalized forms and dosages of veterinary medications.

At our veterinary compounding pharmacy, we work with vets to formulate personalized medications for a variety of pets–cats, dogs, and rabbits, just to name a few. Sometimes commercial forms of medications aren’t available, or your pet needs a specific form or dosage different from standard prescriptions. We create custom formulations tailored to the exact strength, size, and even flavor of your pet’s preferences. We can also make chewable treats forms of medications! Other examples of compounded medications include:

  • Topical gels
  • Capsules
  • Liquids & Injections
  • Oral Suspensions
  • Suppositories

3. We make it easy to get your pets the care they deserve.

As previously mentioned, we understand that pets also deserve personalized care and attention. Medications aren’t always effective or convenient in their standard form, and we work hard to make it as easy as possible for your pet to get the treatment they need. Getting an animal to swallow a pill or receive an injection doesn’t always work out, and smaller breeds of dogs can benefit from smaller-sized medications for easier digestion. From adding flavors to chewable treats to making a topical gel or oral suspension, our compounding services are safe and beneficial for a variety of situations.
