Prescribing Compounded Medication

A prescription is required for all compounded medications. Veterinarians should inform clients they are prescribing compounded medications because there are no commercial products available to meet their animals individual requirement. The prescription should include:

  • Clinic details
  • Owner details
  • Animal name, species, age and weight (if relevant)
  • Dosage and drug required
  • Dosage form (e.g. transdermal, suspension, capsules etc.)
  • Length of treatment or quantity required
  • Signature of the prescriber
