Prescriptions And In House Pharmacy
Mother Lode Veterinary Hospital has a full service pharmacy for your pet’s needs. Our pharmacy prices for heartworm preventives and flea and tick products are competitive with on-line pharmacies. If we do not have a particular medicine in stock, we will order it (which usually only takes a few days) or refer you to a pharmacy that does have it in stock. We have good relationships with local compounding pharmacies, such as Springhill and Dokimos and with Roadrunner Pharmacy in Phoenix Arizona.
These pharmacies can compound prescriptions into formulations to meet the specific needs of your pet – whether it be a taste preference, specific dosage amount, or simply to compound a generic for cost savings. They are also able to formulate transdermal gels for cats that allow you to apply medication in the ears rather than orally, to avoid problems such as upset stomach or for cats that are reluctant to take pills orally.
