(Swedesboro NJ, October 1, 2007) Wedgewood Pharmacy and Midwest Veterinary Supply, Inc. (Burnsville MN) have entered an agency agreement through which Midwest will represent Wedgewood’s compounding pharmacy services to 9,000 veterinary clinics in 27 states. The relationship is effective October 1. This is the first time that Midwest has represented a compounding pharmacy service.
Through the Midwest relationship, Wedgewood’s compounding services will be offered to veterinarians through a full-time sales force of more than 100 people.
Wedgewood Pharmacy is the largest veterinary compounding pharmacy in the U.S. and serves more than 20,000 prescribers. Midwest Veterinary Supply is a wholesale distributor of veterinary pharmaceuticals, biologicals, equipment and instruments. The company also provides practice support and in-clinic training services.
A compounding pharmacy creates customized medications for individual patients in response to a licensed practitioner’s prescription when a medication is no longer commercially available or is required in a different dosage or form. Wedgewood serves more than 20,000 prescribers nationwide with industry-leading, innovative compounding methods that help to improve animal owner compliance.
For example, Wedgewood recently introduced the Gourmeds™ service, which provides commonly prescribed medications in chewable, naturally flavored tablets that use the same high-quality chicken and fish meals that provide the palatable, proven flavors in leading-brand pet foods. The company also recently introduced Twist-A-Dose™, a new type of syringe-delivery package for transdermal gels that improves accuracy and lowers costs compared with older plunger-type syringes.
Established in 1961, Midwest has five shipping branches that provide next-day delivery and six call centers located in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Maryland. For more information visit www.midwestvet.net
