Dosage Forms

capsules Capsules: To meet the diverse needs of our patients, we have gelatin or cellulose (veggie) capsules available in a variety of sizes. Capsules can be made dye-free, lactose-free, or hypoallergenic depending on your needs. We are also able to formulate some medications into a sustained release capsule.
creams Creams: To create a local effect and reduce side effects, many medications can be used topically in place of taking pills by mouth. Creams are also beneficial for children, animals, hospice patients and others that have a hard time swallowing pills.
insufflator Ear Capsules: For hard to treat ear infections, we make special capsules with multiple ingredients. The capsules are placed into a special device called an insufflator that is designed to disperse the powder from the capsule into the ear canal.

Liquid Medications (Solutions and Suspensions): Many medications are not commercially available as a liquid. We can formulate a solution or suspension to meet your individual needs (i.e. – sugar-free, dye-free, preservative-free). See our flavor list for our wide assortment of flavors available for animals as well as people.

sublingual_tablets Sublingual tablets: With medications that are quickly metabolized or broken down by acid in the stomach, a sublingual tablet can be used to by-pass the stomach and obtain higher concentrations in the blood.
suppositories Suppositories: Many times, taking a medication by mouth is not the best option. We make vaginal and rectal suppositories. Smaller suppositories are also available for children or small animals.
troche Troche: A troche is a lozenge that is held in the mouth and allowed to slowly dissolve. In addition to being used for a local effect in the mouth, they can also be used for a systemic effect (similar to sublingual tablets).
