Compounding Drugs

There are two main types of pharmaceutical drugs: those manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and are FDA approved; and those that are “compounded” by either a licensed veterinarian or pharmacist. In equine medicine, compounded drugs are only considered if a horse needs to be treated with a medication but no FDA-approved formulation is licensed for horses. This free Fact Sheet covers the pros and cons of using compounded medications and helps horse owners avoid illegitimate drugs.
