We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

VetRxDirect Pharmacy will cease compounding specialty medications as of August 31, 2023. We will continue to sell commercially manufactured drugs. This has been a very difficult decision to make. We know how important compounded medications can be for the pet-patients that we serve. Unfortunately changes in regulations, combined with variability in state laws, means that our pharmacy does not believe it can continue to provide customers with a cost effective medication option for compounds.
