It is not unusual for pharmacies to want to have an Rx before quoting price.
If you google list of veterinary compounding pharmacies you will find many not listed on ECIR. That does not mean they are not good and reliable, just that their names have not come up here before.
We re compiling a list of questions that may be of help to members when talking with pharmacies:
- Ask if the pharmacy is licensed in your state.
- Ask it they will share Certificate of Analysis for viability of the compound.
If unable to fill an existing prescription, one may ask for transfer to another pharmacy. If you do request a transfer of your prescription, be sure to check that it actually gets done and give the new pharmacy a heads up to look for it.
- Will the pharmacy compound the specific dosage you need
- Are they members of any accrediting organizations/boards such as PCAB (Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board)
- Have they had any action taken against them for compounding issues? If so, for what and how was that resolved
- What is their turnaround time for filling scripts
- How do they ship, what is cost and transit time
