Hello again from the Compound Lab! This is the last post I have for vet compounds. Unfortunately, this means that our weekly animal pictures have come to an end. You’re all disappointed, I’m sure.I saved this last post for a less serious topic: coughing. Like with people, pets can develop bouts of coughing. Usually this is more of an annoyance than anything, but sometimes a chronic cough can be a sign of a serious underlying condition, including heart and lung problems. Only a vet can determine the source and severity of your animal’s cough, but if they decide your pet needs treatment for the cough directly, our pharmacy has a couple solutions.The first is to use a commercial product called Hycodan. It contains two different medicines that can help with cough. It’s not a compound, but not all pharmacies keep it in stock. Fortunately, we do—plus we can add dog-friendly flavors to it, too.If the commercial product doesn’t work for you, either because it’s the wrong strength or your pet won’t take it, we can compound a similar product. Like the other vet compounds we make, we can customize it for your pet’s particular tastes, to ensure giving it to them is a breeze. So, if your furry friend needs some cough relief, we’d love to help out! As always, we're available in the lab Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. Or you can email me anytime at email@example.com. We’d love to hear from you!
Until next time,
