Horse Necessities, Inc. is a pharmacy that compounds prescription medication primarily for horses. Compounding is the creation of a drug to meet the needs of a particular patient.
The three licensed pharmacists on staff at Horse Necessities, Inc. continue their education with a focus on sterile, nonsterile, and veterinary compounding. Through training and relationships with the prescribing veterinarians, they work to treat diseases and improve the welfare of the animal patients. Our pharmacists provide an invaluable service to the equine practitioner and their practice. The pharmacy at Horse Necessities, Inc aims to dispense a stable, quality compound with every prescription.
If you have a horse with a specific medication need, give Horse Necessities, Inc. a call. Both sterile and non-sterile compounds are available and can usually ship the same day.
