ATLANTA, July 19 /PRNewswire/ — Today VetExchange announced a new relationship that will make hard-to-find products and specialty medications from one of the nation’s leading compounding pharmacies — and one of the few catering to veterinarians — easily accessible to thousands of veterinarians via the VetExchange system.
Prior to this agreement, veterinarians in need of such pharmaceuticals had to locate a compounding pharmacy, determine if that pharmacy carried veterinary products, and then proceed with the ordering process. Compounding pharmacies are something of a rarity in the human health field, and Monument Pharmacy is one the few specializing in veterinary products.
“This agreement will enable VetExchange subscribers to easily locate and order items such as transdermal pastes for hard to medicate cats, various pharmaceutical items and commercially discontinued items from one, trusted online source, anytime,” said Kirk Teschke, DVM, co-founder and chief veterinary consultant for VetExchange.
“We are pleased to broaden our reach and provide custom formulations over the Internet to a variety of veterinary professionals,” said Lee Frisbie, R. Ph., founder of Monument Pharmacy.
VetExchange is a web-based system designed to enhance efficiency within veterinary practices by streamlining practice management techniques, offering access to breaking animal health care news, providing continuing education opportunities and allowing practices to share electronic patient management records. Subscribing practices receive use of VetExchange practice management tools, information resources and the value-added services of VetExchange
