Why Compounding is Essential
A growing number of people and animals have unique health needs that off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all prescription medicines cannot meet. For them, customized medications are the only way to better health.Read More
TestimonialsMeet the many individuals who have been personally helped by pharmacy compounding.
The ABQ Biopark has been working with a compounding pharmacy for more than seven years. As an institution serving numerous and varied species, we routinely have a need to administer medications and supplements in forms and doses that are not typically manufactured as mainstream pharmaceuticals.
Our compounding pharmacists have provided many products over the years that have facilitated our care of the collection’s animals, including: anesthetics and sedatives compounded into higher concentrations so that we can use just one dart when anesthetizing larger animals; flavored suspensions for oral use; and raw drugs in huge quantities to treat elephant illnesses.
When we were treating our white rhino for a foot abscess and she was refusing her prescribed antibiotics, the compounding pharmacy took the time to create an individually dosed marshmallow treat concoction that she adored and which successfully treated the infection. They are always quick to suggest appropriate flavors and methods of preparation when I call with a new medication problem. Compounding is a critical service for most zoos and our pharmacy has been a lifesaver.
