• Use of the compounded product in lieu of FDA approved, for cost savings only, is legally prohibited and thus not an “insured occurrence”.
Regina,   I interpret that to mean that compounded Pergolide is no legal?  Not sure how this will convince my Vet (who says she could lose her license prescribing it) to prescribe!   Am I missing something?  Does this vary State to State in the US?  I am now confused more than ever.
