BCP Compounds Medetomidine

02/07/22

BCP will now be compounding Medetodimine as the brand name drug, Domitor was discontinued by Pfizer when they introduced Dexdomitor as a replacement. Both drugs are used as a mild sedative and analgesic in animals, therefore, is used for exams and minor procedures, including dental work. Currently, the new product, Dexdomitor is currently on an extended manufacturer backorder, therefore veterinarians are looking for Medetomidine which we are currently compounding. Domitor and Dexdomitor are dosed differently so veterinarians should reference Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook for dosage and drug information. BCP is currently monitoring the FDA website of drug shortages to help bridge the gap, keeping both clinics and pet owners able to obtain necessary medications. For a list of shortages, you can visit: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/drugshortages/ to see information on specific medications. BCP Veterinary Pharmacy strives to locate the highest quality active and inactive ingredients to compound safe mediations for animals. We conduct sterility and potency testing to ensure our products meet the highest standards in the industry. Our local and nationwide shipping is the best in the business, with customers receiving most products within 2 days from ordering. BCP is the original animal only compounding pharmacy, founded and owned by Registered Pharmacist, Jennifer Gimon, in 1995. When you work with BCP, excellent customer service, superior quality, and timeliness are what you will get.
