Compounding eases the medication experience for both people and pets!
Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioner's prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient.
Chinook is dedicated to formulating creative, individualized and affordable compounded medications. Our highly trained pharmacists ensure that each compound we prepare meets the stringent guidelines of the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP). This provides our patients with both safe and therapeutic healthcare solutions.
Custom Dosing Forms
We can compound medications in the following forms:
Skin, ear, nasal and suppository forms
Flavored oral suspensions
Our compounding pharmacists are happy to consult with both healthcare providers and patients to develop custom solutions tailored to your needs.
Compounding For Pets
The pet who refuses to take medication because of the taste or form is a prime opportunity for compounding. Cats do not like pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs do not appreciate a traditional solution of medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll gladly take it when it is flavored with meat or part of a tasty biscuit or treat. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution. By working closely with your veterinarian, Chinook can prepare medicines in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals happily eat!
