Compounding fulfills a niche market for us. In fact, veterinary ophthalmologists have relied on compounding for many years, and they are more important than ever! The benefits of compounding include increased options for treating patients and access to much-needed medications during shortages, backorders and discontinuations.
Veterinary ophthalmologists have employed compounded medications for many years to treat ophthalmic disease. The early and frequent reliance of ophthalmologists on compounded medications is due in part to an ever increasingly narrow spectrum of available medications, practitioner preferences for the “old standbys” and the obvious advantage of using novel types of medications before they are officially approved for use in veterinary medicine. In many cases, the use of compounded medications represents extra-label use of the medication and the veterinarian must be aware of the laws in their state.
From avma.org: http://www.avma.org/issues/drugs/ELDU_AMDUCA_faq.asp
“Extra-label drug use (ELDU) describes the use of an approved drug in a manner that is not in accordance with the approved labeling, yet meets the conditions set forth by the Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act of 1994 (AMDUCA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Deviations from FDA-approved labeling include use in another species, use for a different indication, use at a different dose or frequency, and use via a different route of administration.”
There are many benefits to using compounded pharmacies. Here is a brief list of the most important benefits to you.
I've put together a presentation on what is currently going on in the pharmaceutical industry and how it impacts veterinary practitioners like us. Download the eBook from the Resources for Veterinarians section of WedgewoodPetRx. Additionally, you can watch the on-demand presentation on PetsVetSpace.com for CE credit.
