Equine Medicine

Veterinary: Prescribe Now
Pet Owners: Pick Up and Fill a New Prescription

We care the way you care about happy, healthy horses.

Whether the equine patients you treat are million-dollar athletes or pets whose value is measured in the love lavished upon them; whether you work in a truck, a breeding barn, a stable or a gleaming research center, your challenges as an equine-medicine practitioner are the same. 

“Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.” Ronald Duncan, The Horse, 1954

When manufactured drugs are not available and you turn to custom-compounded medications, you must know that the people preparing every prescription you write care the way you care … about your patients, your clients and your reputation.
While quality, reliability and consistency always have been critical to your choice of a compounding pharmacy, value and service are more important than ever to you and your clients. 
As one of the largest compounding pharmacies in the U.S. serving more than 30,000 human- and animal-health prescribers, we have the people, facilities and commitment you demand for you, your patients and your clients.  If there’s a challenge faced by equine veterinarians, we’ve faced it and developed a solution:

  • Is inventory control critical?  More than 95% of orders ship within one business day.  Overnight shipping is always available, too.
  • Does cost matter? We’ve lowered prices on scores of commonly prescribed equine medications.  
  • Is quality critical?  You can count on our sophisticated facilities, people, systems and controls.  Every prescription you write is checked several times for accuracy before it ships.  Even our customer care specialists must pass a state-approved examination before they pick up the telephone.  And, should there be a question about quality, you can trust that we stand behind our work, including maintaining substantial professional and professional liability insurance.
  • Does convenience count?  You can order online 24/7 online at Order.WedgewoodPetRx.com. Use our powerful online search engine to locate the precise medication, dosage, dosage form and flavor you need … in just seconds.  Order from a list of your most frequently ordered medications.  Learn about drug shortages and how we may be of help.  Compare from among the many innovative the dosage forms we offer to find the most cost-effective one. After you order, we’ll confirm it by email and provide shipment tracking information.  And we'll ship to your office or directly to your client.
  • Do you need in formation … now? You and your clients also can turn to our online learning center for scores of professional monographs.
