Among the wide variety of veterinary compounds that our pharmacy produces by Rx, one of the most frequently prescribed active ingredients is metronidazole in various forms: liquid suspensions, transdermal gels, and Tasty Mini Tabs. Veterinarians often request customized metronidazole for cats and dogs with giardia infection, which is caused by protozoa that can colonize and reproduce in the small intestines of several vertebrates.
Metronidazole is a bitterly metallic-tasting antibiotic that decreases inflammation in the bowel. Flavor enhancement, therefore, is a key service that our compounding pharmacy provides for hard-to-dose patients. We layer metronidazole with a complementary flavor like marshmallow or mint and a bitter drug powder to make this pharmaceutical more palatable. For those dogs and cats that will not dose orally, there’s still hope! A transdermal gel – applied to the skin – might be a helpful alternative to produce the desired healthcare outcome.
