PORTLAND, Ore., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Vetsource®, the only veterinary industry-endorsed Home Delivery pharmacy

provider, and Wedgewood Pharmacy, the largest compounding pharmacy in the United States specializing in animal health, have partnered to add thousands of commonly prescribed compounded medications to Vetsource's Home Delivery catalog. Much of Wedgewood Pharmacy's formulary is now available to veterinarians and pet owners with prescription orders through the Vetsource platform.

"Prescribing customized prescription medications is essential to every veterinary practice," said Kurt D. Green, president and CEO of Vetsource. "Our partnership with Wedgewood Pharmacy brings another best-in-class solution to our customers, and allows us to greatly expand our offering of compounded medications through our Home Delivery program to help our partner practices run better businesses, deliver better care, and personalize their clients' experiences via an eCommerce platform they increasingly prefer."

Wedgewood Pharmacy makes customized medications for people, their pets and their horses when commercially available drugs cannot meet their needs. Compounded medications are dispensed under prescriptions written by physicians, veterinarians and other legally authorized prescribers, and are created and prepared by specially trained pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Bliss, Wedgewood Pharmacy's president and CEO. "Our partnership with Vetsource allows veterinarians to access our extensive formulary of high-quality compounded preparations through a rapidly growing channel."
