Welcome to VetMedics Pharmacy

We are located in a brand-new facility in Ronkonkoma, New York at 2127 Lakeland Avenue, Suite 2. We've been providing compounding services for Veterinarians and their patients for nearly a decade. With quality, service and price that is unsurpassed, we can ensure that every pet receives the medications they need to reach therapeutic goals and lead happier lives.

How We Can Help You

We can develop a formulation for nearly any medication to be custom compounded. This is especially important in situations where a drug is either not commercially available or is not palatable to a pet. We have over 5,000 different variations of major drugs prescribed for pets.

When ordinary tablets, capsules, or liquids become difficult to administer to a pet there are still more options that we can provide. With transdermal pens, a consistent measured dose of medicated cream can be applied directly to the skin of the pet's inner ear flap. The medication is then delivered through the skin into the capillaries located in the ear. With certain medications, we can also provide chewable treats that contain the medication. These treats are formulated similar to ordinary pet treats, available in fish or bone shapes, which are recognized by pets as something rewarding and tasty.

In addition to standard medication forms like tablets and liquids, we can also compound sterile preparations including eye drops and injections in our state-of-the-art ISO Class 5 sterile suite.

Available Dosage Forms:

Tablets, Capsules, Liquids, Injectables, ophthalmics, otics, Chewable Treats, Topical and Transdermal Preparations, powders and wound care.
