There are hundreds of medications available
– including brand names and generics options! All you have to do is follow all
the usual methods of filling a human medication.
We also offer a wide selection of OTC medication for pet.
Some pet medications are not available to all retail pharmacies. We will take
your item into consideration and will do our best to help and we will
communicate inability to fulfill your request promptly. Generic discounts and AJP club pricing applies to pet
medication. Pet medication can also be compounded (see compounding above.)
Veterinary Compounding for
we work together with veterinarians and pet owners to solve medication
problems. Anyone who has ever given their pet a
medication knows just how difficult that can be. We can compound
customized medicines that meet the unique needs of each animal. Our goal at AJP is to work with the veterinarian
to enhance their ability to treat their animals patients in a more effective
and efficient manner. We are able to achieve this goal by offering
innovative dosage forms that are patient specific in strength and formulation.
Flavor adjustment (e.g. chicken, beef, or liver for
canines; fish for felines; fruit flavors for birds; apple, cherry, or caramel
for horses; etc.)
Transdermal delivery is particularly useful for
animals that should not be stressed due to cardiovascular or hypertensive
illness. When medication is
absorbed directly into the bloodstream, without first entering the
gastrointestinal system, a smaller amount of active ingredient may be required
for therapeutic effect.
Direct application and
absorption at the target site can mean higher tissue levels and blood levels of
various medications. As a result, side effects such as gastrointestinal
irritation may be avoided or minimized.
And perhaps the most important, it is
appreciated by owners who no longer have to deal with an animal that resists
being medicated via the oral or other less convenient route.
