When pets refuse to take their medication

Wedgewood Pharmacy helps pets take the medications they need
You know that making certain your pet receives her medicine exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian is key to helping her live a long, healthy life.
But what if your pet simply won't cooperate?
First of all... relax! You're not alone. It is not unusual that your pet doesn't want to take her medicine, but it is important to recognize why your pet may be having trouble complying. Based on our experience, the most common reasons for refusing medication are:
We understand these concerns, and that's why we use methods such as non-bitter versions of the active ingredients, flavoring and flavor masking and why we've developed easy-to-give - and economical - dosing alternatives to discuss with your veterinarian. As always, your veterinarian will make the final recommendation on your pet's care. After consideration, your veterinarian will determine if one of these dosage form options is appropriate for your pet.
- Bitter, unpleasant taste
- Large, hard-to-swallow pill size
- Difficulty administering any oral preparation
Speak with your veterinarian about improving your pet's compliance
Request your free discussion guide to learn about the different dosage form options that may be available to you and to take advantage of a free trial offer (requires that you first visit your veterinarian).
Once you speak with your veterinarian, have them call our customer care pharmacists at 800.331.8272 and mention promo code PC7830 or have your veterinarian complete the fax form enclosed in the discussion guide.
Good luck and good health!
