Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and other compounding personnel looking for hands-on experience preparing common non-sterile dosage forms for veterinary use.
½-day lab training (4 hours) where you will receive hands-on experience compounding 3 common veterinary dosage forms in a controlled laboratory environment, under the guidance of experts in the field.
Complementing the Vet Seminar, this training provides a great hands-on opportunity for compounders to develop their skills in the preparation of customised veterinary medications. For 4 hours, participants will compound from start-to-finish, 3 dosage forms commonly prescribed to veterinary patients, including a transdermal gel, topical shampoo, and oral paste. Participants will learn important pharmaceutical techniques and protocols required for efficacious, effective, and safe compounding, including cleaning and deactivation procedures, balance calibration, standard operating procedures, formulation calculations, qualitative and quantitative verifications, proper geometric addition and trituration, among more. In addition to the hands-on training, participants will review the key concepts of USP <795>, USP <800>, beyond-use dating, and how to interpret a certificate of analysis (COA) and safety data sheet (SDS). The ultimate goal is to teach detailed procedures and techniques required to uphold compounding quality, as well as save time and money through optimised workflow, methods, and the implementation of innovative technologies. Leave this training with the skills and confidence needed for successful veterinary compounding.
