A compounded drug is a modification of its original form. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers complex drugs as "Extra Label Drugs." This means that a combination drug is a custom form of FDA-approved veterinary drug. The veterinarian's composition must be done by either the veterinarian or the pharmacist who received the prescription from the veterinarian. Complex drugs are made on a case-by-case basis for specific patients or animals, and not in large quantities.

Demand for vet compounding pharmacies in North America is expected to be driven by increased pet adoption, rising awareness amongst pet owners, high cost of branded veterinary products, and growing preference of oral liquid formulations.

Availability of alternative dosage forms other than the commercially available veterinary drugs is an important factor for the growing market in North America. For example, anti-parasitic drugs for cattle and antiflea drugs for dogs and cats are the most successful transdermal drugs used from compounding pharmacies. Availability of dosage forms such as transdermal drug delivery, flavored gels, flavored treats or biscuits, and others will help the market experience high growth in the future.
