Compounding Medication for Allergies in Pets: A Lifesaver from VetMedics Compounding Pharmacy

May is Itchy Pet Awareness Month, and while we often think of allergies as a human issue, our furry friends are just as susceptible. Pet allergies can cause a range of uncomfortable and sometimes severe symptoms, from incessant itching and skin infections to gastrointestinal issues and respiratory problems. At VetMedics Compounding Pharmacy, we are dedicated to providing tailored solutions to help pets overcome their allergy challenges and lead happier, healthier lives.

Understanding Pet Allergies

Just like humans, pets can suffer from a variety of allergies. These can be broadly classified into three categories:


Environmental Allergies: Pollen, mold, dust mites, and other environmental factors can trigger allergic reactions in pets.


Food Allergies: Certain ingredients in pet food, such as proteins, grains, or additives, can cause adverse reactions.


Flea Allergies: Flea saliva is a common allergen, leading to intense itching and discomfort.


Identifying the source of an allergy is the first step in managing it. This often involves a combination of allergy testing, dietary trials, and observation of symptoms.

The Role of Compounding Pharmacies

Treating pet allergies can be complex, requiring more than just off-the-shelf medications. This is where compounding pharmacies like VetMedics can shine. We collaborate closely with veterinarians to create customized medications that meet the specific needs of each pet. Here’s how we can help:

Customized Formulations

Every pet is unique, and their medications should be too. We can create customized formulations that address the specific allergens affecting your pet. Whether it’s altering the strength of a medication, combining multiple medications into a single dose, or creating an alternative form (like a transdermal gel for pets who resist oral medications), our tailored solutions ensure your pet gets the most effective treatment.

Flavoring Options

One common challenge pet owners face is getting their pets to take their medications. At VetMedics, we offer a variety of flavoring options to make medications more palatable. From chicken to beef to fish, we can flavor medications to suit your pet’s taste preferences, making administration easier and less stressful for both pets and owners.

Allergy-Specific Compounds

For pets with specific allergies, commercial medications may contain ingredients that trigger reactions. We can create hypoallergenic compounds that eliminate problematic fillers, dyes, or preservatives, ensuring your pet’s treatment is safe and effective.

Topical and Alternative Dosage Forms

Some pets might not respond well to oral medications due to allergies or sensitivities. We offer alternative dosage forms such as topical creams, transdermal gels, and even medicated shampoos. These options can provide relief directly at the site of the problem, whether it’s the skin, ears, or eyes.
