Do not specify a compounded preparation when a suitable FDA-approved product is commercially available. Compounding a copy of an available manufactured drug should not be done as a cost-savings measure. It is not appropriate to request a compounded preparation that would violate any existing drug patents, is a new molecule or a vaccine. Additionally, many pharmacists may decline to compound preparations that are dangerous for them or end users to handle.
Most compounding pharmacies compound every day for cats, dogs and horses. Many compound for exotics like ferrets, pocket pets, birds and lizards. Some compound for zoos and a select few compound for laboratory animal maintenance or for research studies. It is legal to prescribe a compounded preparation for just about any type of animal patient. Wedgewood Pharmacy does not compound for food-producing animals.

There are some limiting factors that may make it impossible to create certain compounded preparations. They include physical and chemical properties, such as the desired strength not being achievable or stability issues created by temperature and light factors. If facility capabilities are a problem, a good compounding pharmacy will know its limitations and decline to compound something it is not equipped to prepare.
