From experiencing side effects from a medication to providing your patient with a medication that’s discontinued, we can create custom medications for health professionals in our onsite laboratory.
The KW Pharmacy was one of the first and is one of the only a few pharmacies in the Region that has an onsite compounding laboratory and the expertise to create custom medications. This allows professionals in the medical and health fields to have medications created specifically for their patient’s unique needs. This includes specific dosages, method of delivery, replacement of discontinued medications, and higher or lower strengths.

We can compound custom medications and treatments for dogs and cats that are unique to their needs. This includes providing a prescribed medicine with a flavour that’s more appropriate and enticing to a specific type and breed of animal.
We can flavour medication with beef, cheese, chicken, liver, or even peanut butter for dogs. Salmon, sardine, or tuna flavouring is popular for cats while alfalfa, apple, or carrot can be compounded for horses.
Dosage forms include topical preparations, solutions, suspensions, flavoured “treats,” oral pastes, capsules, and injections. If a smaller dosage is required for an animal, we can compound the medication into the smaller increment needed or for larger animals, we can concentrate their medication. When a medication is only available in one tablet size, we can compound it to a different size that is easier to swallow.
