From Tom Eilers, Pharmacist/Owner:

  • We sell directly to clients/patients, as well as sometimes to clinics. The vast majority of my business is selling directly to clients, either by mail or will-call here at the pharmacy.
  • We buy Calcitriol from PCCA a reputable source of this product. We then dilute the medication per order into a fixed oil, using almond oil or canola oil most often. We protect the alcoholic groups by incorporating anti-oxidants into the mixture (Vitamin E and BHT) in dilute concentrations.
  • We occasionally are asked to sell over the counter products to customers, and we accommodate those requests, including those for Aluminum Hydroxide.

Pet Health Pharmacy is an Arizona concern that does veterinary compounding.  They were recommended by former clinician, Dr. Cheryl Roge, who wrote:  "I used an online pharmacy when I owned my clinic called Pet Health Pharmacy in AZ.  They can compound meds into forms the animals like more (liquids, gel capsules, etc) and their prices, even for the non-compounded regular meds, were very competitive and often unbelievably cheap.  Their quality is exceptional – no fake meds here. They have an excellent reputation in the veterinary community."
