Oral Suspensions

Golden Gate Veterinary Pharmacists have an acute awareness of drug stability in various forms. In many cases certain species of animals are only capable of taking liquid medications. For this reason, it is paramount that compounded medications are stable in a liquid form. Once this is determined, appropriate medications can be suspended into a liquid, from there we can add flavoring to make the medication more palatable.

Maybe your animal craves a meaty, fishy flavor or prefers something sweet and salty Golden Gate Pharmacy offers over 30 flavors to choose from to accommodate a wide variety of species.

Oral suspensions are delivered in amber bottles containing an easy to use cap and an oral syringe, to prevent waste and mess. We are confident that our oral suspensions will meet the needs of every patient and pet owner.


Tips and Tricks

Using liquid medication for your cat can sometimes be difficult. Try wrapping your cat in a towel with only their head popping out to insert the oral syringe into their mouth.

Rather than prying your pet’s mouth open, try wiggling the syringe through the side of their mouth.

Some suspension can be mixed in with a small amount of your pet’s favorite food. This depends on the drug, ask a pharmacist before doing this.
