Veterinary - General Veterinary Care

Animals make great companions, but awful patients. Wouldn't it be great if there was a low-stress way to administer medicine to our pets? Snell's Pharmacy can customize veterinary preparations that are easy to take, which may improve therapeutic outcomes and reduce side effects.

Compounding medications for animals allows for:
  • unique delivery vehicles to be used (i.e. topical cream, scalp lotion, nail lacquer); which makes administering the medication easier and more pleasant
  • medicines based on individual need as prescribed by a physician
  • multiple medications sometimes can be combined
