In order to provide appropriate medical therapy, animal drug compounding containing desired active ingredients are available. Currently, no FDA-approved drug is available in the market for the treatment of megacolon (constipation) in cats. In 2000, Cisapride, the only safe and effective drug for the treatment of chronic constipation in cats was recalled from the U.S. market.

Hence, for effective pro-kinetic treatment, animal drug compounding remains the only choice for veterinary doctors to prescribe. In addition, drugs containing bromides were also recalled from the U.S. market in the 1970s. However, due to the safety and extended efficacy of bromides, the drug is prescribed by animal drug compounding pharmacies for the treatment of idiopathic epilepsy in dogs.

Increasing Regulatory Inspections for Effective Animal Drug Compounding

Self-nomination for inspection and clearing FDA approval process for adherence to cGMP guidelines is expected to increase drug and brand value for animal drug compounding in the future. To achieve this, animal drug compounding pharmacies need to abide by stipulated FDA norms and also be prepared for surprise inspections.

Regulatory inspections of animal drug compounding pharmacies are expected to boost good manufacturing practices, and thus, increase consumer uptake of these compounded drugs. For example, PCAB notes that, less than 3% of animal drug compounding pharmacies are accredited by PCAB, as of 2015.

Furthermore, only 48 facilities in the U.S. are registered and authorized to engage in bulk API manufacturing. If over 3,500 animal drug compounding pharmacies in the U.S. obtain FDA and PCAB certification, it could largely impact customer uptake of these types of customized drugs thereby boosting the growth of the animal drug compounding market.

Availability of Animal Drug Compounding in Different Flavors Gaining Traction

Availability of flavored animal drug compounding for cats, dogs, exotic pets, and some zoo animals has increased treatment/drug adherence. For example, animal drug compounding of metronidazole with sardine or tuna flavored suspension increases its palatability, thus making it taste better and increasing its compliance. Exotic animals such as birds and sugar gliders prefer sweet flavors such as strawberry, banana, or tutti frutti. Therefore, the availability of flavored products in animal drug compounding is gaining the attention of consumers.
