Veterinarians can return custom-compounded medications for exchange at no cost through Wedgewood Pharmacy’s new Refresh exchange program.

Veterinarians can return custom-compounded medications for exchange at no cost through Wedgewood Pharmacy’s new Refresh exchange program.

Through the program, the company will exchange unopened, expired compounded veterinary medications that are in its regular formulary, including those prepared by other compounding pharmacies.

Exceptions include controlled substances and oncology-related medications.

“In July, we surveyed our veterinarian prescribers; 77 percent of them said that containing costs is a very important issue for them,” said George Malmberg, R.Ph., president and chief executive officer of Wedgewood Pharmacy, based in Swedesboro, N.J.

“When we asked how we could help them with this issue, they said, ‘Do something about the short shelf-life of compounded medications.’ We listened and developed the Refresh exchange program in response.”
