Regulatory Changes May Affect Your Compounded Preparations

UPDATE: Regulatory Changes May Affect Your Compounded Preparations

In light of recent U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) guidelines changes and adoption by multiple state boards of pharmacy, Rood and Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy is committed to keeping veterinarians and customers informed. Under these revised guidelines, Rood and Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy is required to comply with new industry regulations and Beyond-Use Dates (BUDs). 

USP sets the standards and establishes guidelines for compounding pharmacies like ours to follow. Although USP is not a regulatory body, many state boards have adopted these guidelines. Over the last few years, Rood & Riddle Veterinary Pharmacy has been preparing for these changes to ensure continued access to the compounded preparations your animals need. While each compounded formula has its unique circumstances and BUDs set forth by these changes, our team is dedicated to helping our practitioners and customers navigate these changes. 
What do the new USP standards mean for you?
  • Shortened BUDs for Some Compounded Preparations
    • Veterinarians may need to prescribe smaller quantities and more frequent refills.
  • Change In Package Size and Lead Times
    • To provide your animals with the highest quality compounded preparations, we have invested in our equipment, testing, and our team members.
    • Package size may change to dispense a reasonable amount based on new BUDs. 
    • Due to increased monitoring and documentation, lead times may increase. Consider enrolling in Auto-Ship when feasible.
Our commitment to being the quality source for veterinary compounding is unchanged. For compounded preparations affected by these changes, our pharmacy will provide personalized customer support to help guide you in your purchasing decisions. Product quality and patient safety remain our number one priority. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our team at info@rrvp.com or (859) 246-0112
