Virtually any drug can be put into a capsule for use in veterinary medicine. The encapsulation process allows us to customize dosages for a particular animal.
It is a great alternative for pets that have trouble taking normal tablets, capsules, or liquids.
Golden Gate Pharmacy’s micro tablets are the smallest compounded formulation available. Our micro tablets are very small and easy to administer.
Opthalmic solutions are a safe and effective way to treat diseases of the eye. Available for multiple medications in both oil, and aqueous bases, accommodating the needs of every animal.
It is paramount that the medication is stable in a liquid. Once this is certain, the drug can be suspended into a liquid to make the medication palatable.
OTIC EAR PACKS
Owners will no longer have to medicate their animal’s ears on a daily basis, increasing the efficacy and compliance with both pet and pet owner.
Injectables are needed by every Veterinarian on a daily basis. Unfortunately, medications will go on backorder for no reason.
Transdermal gels serve as an alternative to giving medications orally. A small amount of gel containing the medication is rubbed into the hairless area on the inside of the animal’s ear.
