Wedgewood Pharmacy is the largest compounding pharmacy devoted to
animal-health in the U.S. Compounding is the long-established tradition in
pharmacy practice that enables practitioners to prescribe and patients to take
medicines that are specially prepared by pharmacists to meet patients'
individual needs. A growing number of patients have unique health needs that
off-the-shelf prescription medicines cannot meet. For them, customized,
compounded medications prescribed or ordered by licensed physicians or
veterinarians and mixed safely by trained, licensed compounding pharmacists are
the only way to better health.
Compounded medications are created and prepared by specially trained
pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in state-regulated pharmacies when
mass-manufactured drugs are not, according to a prescriber, available or are not
appropriate for a patient. The company’s 503B
Outsourcing Facility, Wedgewood Connect, compounds medications under FDA’s
modified cGMP standards.
Today’s Wedgewood Pharmacy grew from a local community pharmacy to become one
of the largest compounding pharmacies in the United States. It is the leading
pharmacy brand in animal health, recognized by 99% of veterinarians, and used by
8 in 10 veterinarians within the past year. It also prepares compounded
medications for the human-health medical specialties of addiction medicine,
urology and ophthalmology. The company serves more than 50,000 prescribers and
hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the U.S. every year.
George (late) and Lucy Malmberg, both pharmacists, purchased Wedgewood
Pharmacy in 1981; the year after the pharmacy opened. In June 2016, New
Harbor Capital, became the majority shareholder of the company. In 2018, the
company acquired Diamondback Drugs. In 2020, the company purchased and began
production at Wedgewood Connect, an FDA-registered 503B Outsourcing Facility, in
San Jose, California. In the same year, the company acquired Wildlife
Pharmaceuticals and ZooPharm, in Colorado and Wyoming, respectively. In early
2021, New Harbor Capital sold its majority interest in the company to leading
global private-markets firm,
Partners Group, acting on behalf of its clients.
Wedgewood Pharmacy is accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation
Board (PCAB®) for compliance with PCAB and other nationally recognized
compounding standards. PCAB was formed by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy
associations and is a service of Accreditation Commission for Health Care. As a
third-party accreditation organization, PCAB has developed the highest national
standards against which providers are measured to demonstrate their ability to
effectively and efficiently deliver quality compounded medications to consumers.
