What is compounding?
Pharmaceutical compounding (or patient-specific medicine) is the creation of a custom pharmaceutical product for the unique needs of animal patients. This may be done for several reasons – to change the form of the medication from a solid pill to a liquid, to obtain an exact dose needed or deemed best for a patient, to change the flavour to alter the taste, or to change the texture to make it more acceptable to the patient.
