As humans, we spend a significant amount of time focused on our own health and well-being. From new diets to supplements to workouts, many people are rightfully concerned with making healthy choices to increase longevity and quality of life. In addition, when we get sick, we want to choose the best physicians to recommend necessary treatment and the most reliable and safe medications to treat our ailments. Besides focusing on our own health, however, many of us are also concerned with the health of very important members of our households—our pets. Many of us share our homes with cherished dogs, cats, or exotic animals that play a huge role in our lives. Pets provide comfort and emotional support as well as fun memories and bonding moments with our families. Pets generally have a much more limited time on earth than we do, so their health should be a top priority. Additionally, pets cannot speak to us and clearly communicate when they are in pain or discomfort. For these reasons, you should only want the best in comprehensive health care for your pet.
A comprehensive health plan not only includes reliable veterinary services but also pharmaceutical services that are tailored toward your pet. Pets have much different biological systems than humans and some substances that may be helpful for us can be extremely harmful for your pet. At Kress Specialty Apothecary, we are proud to offer the highest quality of pharmaceutical care for your pets as well as providing valuable guidance if you have any questions regarding the safety or effectiveness of prescribed or over-the-counter medications for your pet.
We can provide pharmaceutical solutions for all types of veterinary issues, including the following:
In addition to providing the medications and supplements, we can also work with you to compound specialized formulas that result in the proper dosage and administration for your specific pet’s needs. If your pet is reluctant to take medication, our compounding can also help you with unique delivery methods for medication so that you know your pet is getting the treatment they need. We are equipped to make a variety of delivery methods that your pets will love - for example, we can make your dog’s medication into biscuit form, or provide liquid suspensions for your cat. We can provide formulas that treat complex issues including:
At Kress Specialty Apothecary, we realize that not every ache, pain, or ailment your pet exhibits will require a trip to the vet and a prescribed medication. For this reason, we can provide guidance on a variety of home remedies that may be helpful for your pet. Home remedies can include Vitamin E, chamomile tea, oatmeal or Epsom salts, plain yogurt, electrolyte replacements, and more. Before considering any home remedies it is important to speak with your vet.
Exotic pets have significantly different needs than traditional pets such as dogs or cats. For these often more delicate animals, our compounding services can help create the exact formula and dosage your pet needs, as well as create the right form for successful and stress-free administration of the medicine. Please contact us with any pharmaceutical needs you may have and we can help find solutions to keep your exotic pet in the best health possible.
