Veterinary Compounding

Is there a need to compound veterinary drugs?  There most definitely is.

From a veterinarian's perspective
How often have you had to cut those large pills into quarters just because the pills manufactured were done with the 'average' dog in mind?  Are they exactly equal in size?  More often than not, they aren't.  How often have you had owners complain that their cats have started foaming in the mouth because of the bitter pills that you've prescribed and they aren't sure how much it actually received because some of it got spat out?  Wouldn't you love to have a transdermal option for some drugs that are required for patients with chronic conditions?  Owner compliance is the biggest reason why 'treatment' of the animal just doesn't meet the standards required for optimal animal health.  When Heartgard first came out with the tablets how hard was it to ensure that owners gave their pets the drug?  How many owners use the tablets now that the beef flavored chewables have come out?  From a veterinarian's perspective, anything that will increase owner compliance will inevitably make your job much easier.

From an owner's perspective
The vet's prescribed these pills to give to Fluffy the cat and the instructions were to give it to her twice daily for 7 days.  Just pop the pill in he said.  You do and Fluffy spits it out even though you've clamped her mouth shut.  You try again and by this time the coating of the pill is mush and Fluffy is starting to froth and runs away and scratches you when you try again.  The next time you try to hide it in her food and would you believe she ate all around the pill and left the pill in the food bowl still intact?  Wouldn't it be nice to be able to give her the pill in tuna or liver flavor so she just eats it with gusto?  It can be done.
