The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

In a recent article of the National Community Pharmacist Association (NCPA) magazine,it was reported that pharmacies across the America are finding it profitable to offer pet health products to their customers. The service is touted as convenient for customers who are picking up their own medications and can get their pets’ prescriptions in the same place.
One company, the FLAVORx Veterinary System, is able to compound pet medications with a flavored liquid for palatability and ease of owner administration. Instead of trying to get the pet to take a pill, owners can mix liquid medication with a pet’s favorite treat or food.
FLAVORx has been in existence since 1997 and their flavoring system is available in thousands of vet clinics and pharmacies across the United States. The True-Dose patented technology provides pets with nutritional and functional supplements. According to the company, the supplements are manufactured in a human pharmaceutical facility with standards mandated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). True-Dose is sold as a flavored liquid and therefore, the company reports that pets absorb and consume 100 percent of the ingredients.
The FLAVORx Veterinary System allows vets and their staff to utilize the Digital Flavorist software by entering patient species, weight, drug, and dosing requirements. Calculations are done by the software so that step-by-step instructions merit a flavored prescription for clients. Each liquid comes with a pump so that dosages are measured and dispensed precisely.
Original flavors in the line include bacon, fish chowder, molasses, grilled tuna, chicken pot poe, banana bread, angus beef, salmon steak, and peanut butter. Specialty flavors include cherry, bubblegum, grape, orange, raspberry, apple, strawberry, and watermelon.
