Pet Connections

Susan Merenstein,

Susan Merenstein, RPh/Owner of Murray Avenue Apothecary has over 35 years of pharmacy practice experience including pet therapies. In their on-site state-of-the-art compounding laboratory, certified technicians and pharmacists prepare innovative, economical, and easy-to-use dosage forms for animals. Susan and her dedicated and caring staff help veterinarians and animal care specialists solve a variety of medication problems including hard-to-find medications, custom dosages, drug combinations, alternatives and transdermal medications. They carry top-of-the-line, holistic private-labeled products including Dog Multi, Cat Multi, and Flea & Tick Spray.

Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications with valuable benefits. Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, digestion issues, cancer, thyroid disease, diabetes, and aging. Medicating pets presents unique problems that often are best dealt with through compounding. 

As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages can be very tricky with dogs – a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a six-pound Yorkie to handle. Large and exotic pets pose many unique medication challenges. A compounding pharmacist is equipped to help them all!

Murray Avenue Apothecary compounds an exclusive OTC product called Ralph’s Immunity and Inflammation Formula which contains Acetyl-Glutathione for inflammation, arthritis, asthma, liver disease, and more for your cat or dog. MAA’s Healing Rub with Zinc and Aloe may help to treat hot spots, itching, and excessive licking. A preliminary study using MAA’s Corn and Callus Cream and Hyaluronic Acid Pre-Treatment found that “80% of corns are improved or resolved.”

Murray Avenue Apothecary is your LOCAL destination for compounding and wellness. They always welcome you and your pets too!
