Compounded drugs also are prescribed when a manufactured drug is off the market, a raw chemical is not manufactured as a drug or the manufactured drug has multiple ingredients that may not be advisable for the pet. In such cases, pharmacists may make a medication from bulk ingredients - and that's the main aspect of compounding the FDA is targeting.
