URGENT!!...CONTACTS NEEDED NOW!!!!!!

To further regulate pharmacy compounding, the US Senate is attempting to pass legislation through a process known as "Unanimous Consent" before they adjourn for August recess next week, AND IT COULD HAPPEN AS SOON AS TODAY! The final bill S. 959, the Pharmaceutical Compounding Quality and Accountability Act, was produced behind closed doors, yet this procedure prevents any debate on the bill, prohibits amendments, and no Senator is forced to go on the record and affirmatively support the bill. However, it takes only ONE SENATOR to SAY NO to force regular order.

Compounding of medications is nothing new, but rather has been a widely accepted practice for many years. More recently however, it has found more practical applications within the equine industry. With the advancement in breeding technology and disease control we find that not all commercially available medications fit every specific need.

Custom compounding is a logical and convenient solution to this problem. At Axtell Pharmacy our compounding specialists work together with veterinarians and other clients to solve medication problems created by the limitations of mass produced commercial medications. Our staff can modify a standard dose, add a preferred flavor, or change the delivery form to fit the needs of the individual. By taking care of each patient individually we eliminate the "one size fits all" approach.

We have the capability to offer several methods of delivery including paste, gels, solutions, and suspensions. We also produce capsules, ODTs (orally disintigrating tablets), and powders that can be administered with either food or liquids. If you need a topical or injectable medication we produce those as well.

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of compounding is that multiple medications can be combined into one compound. This provides not only a cost and time savings, but also helps to reduce stress levels by administering one instead of multiple medications.
