Capsules

capsule-bottleBCP Veterinary Pharmacy uses both technological skill and encapsulation machines to precisely fill capsules of various sizes with the exact strength of medication that an animal may need. A drug in powder form is enclosed in a non-flavored, hard, gelatinous shell that is easy to swallow and masks any bitter taste. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy can compound most drugs into this capsule form. The capsule size is dependent on the strength of the drug required. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy always prepares the smallest capsule possible and can sometimes combine several medications, making administration easier and more efficient for both the animals and their owners.

Some of the more popular medications that are available include:

• piroxica • griseofulvin
• potassium bromide • diethylstilbestrol
