- Yes it is good to know. There is only one place
that compounds meds here in town and I had a very bad
experience with one of the owners earlier tonight.
I wasn't going to mention anything but now
I think I would like some feedback on what did
Last week the second vet we saw called the
pharmacy to order compounded prapronolol
I think it is called. It is a med to decrease
heart rate. Anyhow, we knew she needed the
meds ASAP and they were not able to have
the compounded version ready until later
the next day. So the vet gave us one pill
which we divided into 4 since she was to take
1/4 pill dose. We noticed a bad reaction every
time we administered that drug. Anyhow.
So we ended up back at the vet that Friday
which was the day we were suppose to go pick
up this compounded prapronolol. Well that
day the other vet was in and we told him
that she seemed to have a reaction from the prapronolol.
So he said well don't take it, stop taking
that drug right away. So of course we did not
go pick it up. Why would we go pay that much
money for a prescription we were told not to use.
Who does that? Would any of you go buy it knowing
you were not going to use it.
Okay so this is what happened next. I got the
new compounded aspirin script and when it got
to me I realized they had halved the script
and charged me full price. So I called an left a
message and within a few minutes someone returned
my call. I told him what happened. We didn't
bring the script in it was called in by the hospital
we had left that day after our echo. So he said
well I don't know what your script says but this
is what they told me to make. So anyhow. He
apoligizes and we said well we will contact the hospital
to see what happened with that, because apparently
it wasn't his mistake but theirs.
THEN.....he calls back with a real attitude. He says
"By the way, you have another script here that you
never picked up". I said yes, we were told not to
take it. He said in a real rude tone. "Well who told you
to do that?" So I told him the vet did. He then says, "which
vet?" I then told him which vet. Then he says, "Yeah well
I'll be calling him to see if he in fact told you that,"
I was literally floored. I said, "Excuse me but who is
going to pay for a script when they were told not to use
it." I said, "Do you actually expect me to go pay for that
take it home and throw in in the garbage, you have to
be kidding me?!" I had tried to call to let them know
we were not going to pick it up and it was busy the two
times I tried and I don't have the time to call there every
minute of the day. I have better things to do. I was
pissed and so was my husband. So we called to find
if there was another place here that compounds meds. There
was not! So I was to assume he thinks he can treat
people so venomously because he is the only one that does
it. I said oh yeah. So I started making calls. I found
a place that does it and it is 2 hours away and you can
bet your bottom dollar I will be travelling 2 hours because
there is no way in hell he will get another penny of my business!
So what would you have done? Would you all have went
and paid so you could go home and throw it out. If he had
any sense he would just donate it to the clinic in case someone
needs it. Some people have no sense.
Stepping down off the soapbox.

must observe my paintings carefully and try to
see in them what I am".
