For many years, compounded veterinary prescriptions have been the answer to many pet owners’ struggles when it comes to treating their animals. However, a current FDA proposal is jeopardizing that. Let your voice be heard!
Having a sick pet can be difficult for the whole family. Between non-compliance and difficulty pinpointing the correct dosage, animals can be very difficult to medicate. Many vets have found that animals are more receptive to compounded medication in a tasty treat or as a transdermal gel.
At CarePro Compounding, we work to personalize the flavor, strength and dosage form of the compounded prescription. Our pharmacists can customize each prescription to enhance the ability to safely and effectively treat your pet.
However, FDA Docket No. FDA-2010-N-0528 is challenging that. This new proposal would want to have vets only prescribe finished, FDA approved drugs. This new regulation would greatly reduce the amount of prescription options available to vets. This will make it extremely difficult for veterinarians to safely and effectively treat their patients. Not only that, but the limitations that the FDA is proposing don’t exist for human compounded products.
By visiting www.regulations.gov and search for docket FDA-2010-N-0528, you can let the FDA know how these limits will impact the ability to effectively treat, and the quality of care provided to the animals requiring medical care. Every comment helps! Please call CarePro Compounding if you have further questions.
