Once a diagnosis is made and we decide that the treatment includes a medication, making the prescription is a complex matter. One must first choose the right drug among many options: if it is an antibiotic that your pet needs one must decide which antibiotic may be the most appropriate. Then one must decide on the presentation (liquid, powder, capsules, tablets, injections etc). Here we must consider that you will be able to actually administer the drug, as giving a medication may be challenging. The presentation of the drug must also be such that we can easily adjust the right dose for the weight of your pet. If any of those factors fails, the treatment may fail. The matter becomes even more complex if your pet needs more than one medication.
In order to have proper control of all the factors involved in a prescription, we have an on-site pharmacy where we stock most of the medications used in our daily practice, including natural remedies. We stock medications from specific manufacturers that we have become familiar with and whom we trust. We carry medications from suppliers who are able give guarantees of quality and support if there are unexpected results. We carry medications in the forms that we know will be the most appropriate for your pet, in most cases, so when you come for a consultation you can leave with the medication your pet needs to start the treatment right away.
