The FLAVORx Veterinary System is a tool used by pharmacists and veterinarians to help animals take their medicine. This unique program allows providers to turn hard-to-swallow tablets and capsules into tasty flavored liquids that animals prefer. Flavoring is a safe and effective solution to making medication palatable for animals and it relieves anxiety for the pet owners who must administer medication to their pets. FLAVORx is a service that customers willingly pay for; as a matter of fact 60% of pet owners are willing to pay between 50-200% premiums for medications that are easy to administer (2009 AAHA Compliance Study).

 

FLAVORx Vet Program

The FLAVORx Veterinary Program was created in 1999 to give pharmacists and veterinarians the tools and instructions they need to quickly, accurately, and profitably compound and flavor veterinary medications. This customer-friendly service is now offered in over 4,000 locations – from vet clinics and independent compounding pharmacies to grocers, chain drug stores, online pharmacies, and zoos. We provide our customers with everything they will need to make their new flavoring service successful immediately. Whether it’s a diabetic cat or a fussy ferret, this flavoring system will provide all of the necessary tools to turn medication into a tasty treat!

 

In the past, most pharmacists did not have the tools or training to compound medications for animals. Thus even the word ‘compounding’ made them send their customers and their money out the door. Not anymore! FLAVORx’s Digital Flavorist is a powerful, easy-to-use web-based tool that walks you through compounding and flavoring veterinary medications from start to finish. The formulary maps out the compounding and flavoring processes so that it is easy to understand and quick to perform. On average, simply flavoring a prescription takes approximately 15 to 20 seconds. If compounding is required, it should take no more than 1 to 3 minutes.

 

If you are sending your customers elsewhere to get their pets’ prescriptions filled, you are missing out on exceptional profits that will considerably increase your bottom line. You can accomplish so much more by offering the FLAVORx veterinary flavoring service. Offering to compound and flavor medications on-site enables you to provide your customers with a great convenience: one-stop shopping for all members of their family, including their pet. No longer will your customers have leave your pharmacy then go to another pharmacy just to pick up their animals’ medications. Profit margins on compounded and flavored prescriptions are phenomenal. There are very few services that yield this kind of return and at the same time produce a positive patient outcome and generate intense patient loyalty.

 

The preparation of medications for animals has always been a mystery to pharmacists. FLAVORx takes the mystery away and allows you to capitalize on this relatively untouched segment of business that can be extremely financially rewarding. The FLAVORx Veterinary System comes with both the tools and instructions on how you and your staff can easily and quickly compound and flavor medications.

 

The FLAVORx Veterinary System is not only a powerful service for consumers and their companion animals, but also a money making engine for any existing pharmacy. Compounding allows you to stretch your pharmacy and stop sending profits out the door. FLAVORx “extends the life” of a pharmacy, thereby increasing a pharmacy’s revenue. Pharmacists currently using FLAVORx are just watching their business grow!
