FLAVORx Teams up with Wedgewood Pharmacy to Make it Even Easier to Make Pet Medications Taste Good
Date:1/21/2008

SWEDESBORO, N.J., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Veterinary Division of FLAVORx, Inc., which distributes a veterinary-medicine flavoring system, and Wedgewood Pharmacy, the nation's largest compounding pharmacy, have teamed up to provide a new, convenient option for veterinarians to make pet medications taste good. The FLAVORx system provides "recipes" that veterinarians use to add flavors to specially-formulated prescription suspensions from Wedgewood Pharmacy. The process is quick, easy and cost-effective and make it easier for pet owners to administer medications -- and tastier for pets to take their medicine.

The FLAVORx system lets veterinarians turn bitter or foul-tasting medications into readily-accepted, flavored liquids, a process that dramatically improves animals' compliance with critical medication regimes and reduces owners' stress of medicating their animals. The arrangement with Wedgewood Pharmacy allows veterinarians to use finished, custom-made medicines that have been compounded under strict quality-control standards rather than the pure chemicals many now use as the basis for making flavored medicines. This in turn will decrease a veterinarian's investment in large-quantity chemical inventories, equipment and time required to weigh, measure and compound the preparations they flavor in their clinics.

Initially, Wedgewood will offer six specially formulated unflavored compounds to FLAVORx customers:

-- Potassium bromide 250MG/ML, commonly prescribed for treatment of

seizures in dogs;

-- Clindamycin 25MG/ML, an antibiotic;

-- Metronidazole Benzoate 50MG/ML and 100MG/ML, an antifungal;

-- Prednisolone 5MG/ML, a glucocorticoid;

-- Methimazole 5MG/ML: commonly prescribed for hyperthyroidism;

-- Cisapride 5 and 10MG/ML, a gastrointestinal prokinetic, commonly

prescribed to for treatment of megacolon or chronic constipation in

cats.
