Until the 20th century, all pharmacies were compounding pharmacies, meaning they combined one or more active ingredients into a customized treatment for an individual patient’s needs. Today, very few pharmacies provide this type of personalized service.

Pet Health Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy dedicated to providing high-quality medications. As a compounding pharmacy, we formulate combinations of pharmaceutical grade ingredients, as prescribed by a veterinarian, into specific dosage forms such as capsules, creams, gels and other forms. All of the active pharmaceutical ingredients used for compounding are purchased from FDA registered suppliers.
