The pet population can pose challenges when attempting to administer commercially available oral medications. Irregular tablet sizes and unflavored or unpalatable medications can make administration to pets difficult.
Many people are unaware that compounded drugs provide tailored and flavored medication options as reasonable alternatives for appropriately delivering medication to animals.
In this episode, we'll talk with veterinary pharmacist Natalie Young, PharmD, about her passion, research, and work to expand awareness and opportunities in the industry of veterinary pharmacy.
Guest Speaker Bio
While in graduate school, Dr. Natalie Young realized that if you go to a traditional ‘big box’ pharmacy, the pharmacist behind the counter probably does not know how to care for your animal. Through no fault of their own, they haven’t been educated in veterinary pharmacy. From that point on, she knew she had found her calling. Since earning her Doctorate from the UNC-Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy and falling head-first into veterinary pharmacy, she has blazed many new trails through the fields of pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
