In its 35-year history, Wedgewood Pharmacy has grown from a local community pharmacy into one of the largest compounding pharmacies in the U.S., serving more than 30,000 prescribers and hundreds of thousands of patients every year with both human and animal medications. Compounding pharmacies make unique medications for individual patients when a manufactured drug is not appropriate, or is not available, for a particular patient. “Because of animal diversity, compounding for animal patients requires much more innovation,” says Marcy A. Bliss, president and CEO of Wedgewood Pharmacy.
WORDS OF WISDOM: “Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning.” – Benjamin Franklin
In 2005, Wedgewood Pharmacy began a concerted program of developing innovative dosage forms that would meet the unique needs of animal patients and make it easier to administer medications. Collectively, these proprietary innovations comprise the Wedgewood Pharmacy brand line called DeliverEase. DeliverEase has contributed significantly to Wedgewood Pharmacy’s marketplace position as the largest veterinary compounding pharmacy in the U.S. “We’ve made specialized medicine for animals more accessible and easier to administer,” says Bliss.
