Abstract:  Compounding pharmacists who have decided to provide veterinary preparations must be familiar not only with current clinical information on veterinary medicine but also with the veterinary regulatory culture, business structure and value system. This article starts by mentioning the perception by some veterinarians that compounding pharmacists are moving into their territory and goes on to talk about monitoring veterinary compounding, concerns and caveats, handling complaints and combating rogue practices. Figures provide the American Veterinary Medical Association Compounding Position Statement, Position Statement on Internet Pharmacies and Pharmacy Complaint Form. The author concludes that veterinarians should also be reported for questionable activities and that the ultimate solution to problems arising between veterinarians and pharmacists resides in open communication between individual practitioners. The two need to work together to provide the best-quality care.
