Tailored Solutions for Stress-Free Administration

Simplify Pet Medication with Veterinary Compounding

Administering necessary medications to our cherished animals can often be stressful. At SaveWay, we provide customized solutions for pets of all types and sizes so we can help you address the complexity of their care. From capsules for dogs to injections for horses, our compounded preparations are tailored to each pet’s unique needs. In collaboration with you and your vet, we create a personalized treatment plan that prioritizes you and your pet’s comfort and well-being.

Tailored Solutions, Endless Benefits: The Power of Customized Pet Medications

Ease of Administration:

Our compounded medications are designed with your pet’s comfort in mind. Whether it’s a chewable treat, a transdermal gel, or another tailored form, administering medication becomes easier and less stressful for both you and your furry friend. Most animals run when they know you are trying to administer medication. Therefore, we want to help you find a solution to make the process less stressful for you both. Our preparation options include:

  • Transdermal gels
  • Mini tablets
  • Flavored liquids
  • Oral pastes
  • Chewable treats
  • Nasal sprays
  • Eye drops
  • Injections
  • Suppositories

Enhanced Pet Acceptance with 30+ Flavors:

Adding flavor will help your pet to take medicine more willingly. We use flavor strategically, either to complement the natural flavors of a drug or to mask bitter flavors. To ensure we have something that will make medicine more appetizing for your pet, we offer well over 30 flavors.

Solutions for Unavailable Meds:

If an animal needs a medication that’s been discontinued or is back-ordered, we have the ability to compound that drug in a personalized strength, dosage form and flavor.

Allergy-Friendly Formulations:

If your pet has allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients found in commercial medications, our compounding expertise allows us to create allergy-friendly formulations that cater to your pet’s specific needs.

Combination Medications:

Some pets require multiple medications to manage their conditions. We can combine compatible medications into a single dose, simplifying your pet’s medication regimen and ensuring proper dosing.

Pediatric and Geriatric Care:

Young and elderly pets often have distinct medication requirements. Compounded medications can be adjusted to suit their age-related needs, providing accurate dosages and enhanced efficacy.

Customized Strengths:

Not all pets fit into standard dosage categories. We can customize the strength of medications to match your pet’s weight and condition accurately, reducing the risk of over- or under-dosing.

Quick Turnaround:

We understand that your pet’s health can’t wait. Our efficient compounding process allows us to provide you with the customized medications your pet requires in a timely manner.
