Our pharmacy complies with Veterinary Board regulations on storage and dispensing of all medications. As part of our compliance measures, two staff members check every drug dispensed and we always provide demonstrations to pet owners on how to administer medications, in addition to our written guidelines.
When necessary, we utilise the services of a Compounding Chemist, who formulates drugs into tasty pastes, liquids and ointments for ease of dosing. The Compounding Chemist will also custom-flavour a medication to fit the tastes of your pet. Some medications can be made into an ointment-type preparation, which are absorbed through the skin.
For pets on long-term medications, we keep the prescription active for the maximum amount of time allowed by Veterinary Board regulations. This means pet owners can make a phone call requesting a repeat prescription fill and the medication will be ready for collection the following day.
