A patient that has an allergy to a dye, preservative, or ingredient that is in a commercially available product, may need the product made without the dye or offending ingredient. A patient that has difficulty swallowing or gastrointestinal problems may require that the drug be put in a transdermal cream and applied to the skin for absorption. Often a drug becomes unavailable to the public due to a manufacturing problem and a compounding pharmacy can step in and purchase the bulk powder and provide the necessary medications for the patient. Some drugs are not available in the strength that is needed for a particular individual. Examples may include a premature infant or medicine for a cat or a dog. With compounding, the pharmacist is able to customize the exact dose or change the dosage form to meet these needs of patients.
Cantrell Drug works with local veterinarians to help provide medications for all your pets. Following are some of the services we offer:
Trying to administer medication to an animal is not always easy. We prepare medications in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals devour. Tuna for cats, liver for dogs, banana or tutti fruitti for exotics… you name it – we can compound it!
Medicine in ideal size, strength, and dosage form
Commercial animal medications may be available in only one size or strength. For example, a tablet may be too large to give a cat, but an excessive amount may be needed for a horse. We can create a preparation which contains the most appropriate dosage for a specific animal. We make medicine much easier to administer and often more economical. We can compound numerous dosage forms that are just right for specific animals from medicated chewable “treats” to liquid concentrates, from ear drops to dusting powders. The active ingredient can usually be administered by various routes. (oral, transdermal, otic, etc.)
Manufacturers often stop producing medicines and dosage forms which are unprofitable to market due to low demand. However, there is still the occasional need for such products. Perhaps a veterinary formulation is unavailable, and for one reason or another, the human preparation just won’t do. We can obtain the necessary pharmaceutical grade chemicals, and from them compound individualized dosage forms that may even be superior to the discontinued formulation for use in a particular animal.
Combinations to improve compliance
The ideal preparation may need to contain several ingredients to treat a variety of symptoms. For example, an animal may have skin problems that do not respond to a single-ingredient preparation. Yet using three medicines from separate containers can be inconvenient and costly. We can compound the needed concentrations of all three medications into a single, easy-to-use preparation. In a similar manner, we can prepare solutions containing more than one medication for delivery by nebulizer.

Cantrell Drug is your HCG Diet headquarters. Prescription strength HCG in both sublingual and injectable forms are compounded on site in our state of the art compounding laboratory.
During pregnancy women make and secrete hCG in early pregnancy to mobilize fat from stores in the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen and underarms to aid in fetal nourishment.
Patients hold a small amount of medication under the tongue for several minutes twice daily for 23 days. Patients must adhere to a 500-calorie-per-day diet with no sugars on days 3-23 for the hCG to work properly. Treatment may be extended up to 40 days if further efficacy is required. After 40 days a mandatory 6 week drug holiday is required to avoid developing tolerance to hCG.
Patients may also choose this form
Who Can Use the HCG Diet?
Anyone who has gone through puberty and has a valid prescription for hCG
How to Begin
A prescription is required - Because Cantrell Drug Company formulates hCG in prescription strength, a prescription must be obtained from a licensed physician to begin the diet.
It is highly recommended to buy and read the diet guideline book to become familiar with hCG and the approved foods, lotions, deodorants, etc, as the oils in many products may interfere with how well hCG works in the body.
Thank you for your interest in Cantrell Drug Company’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and Cortisol Testing. When patients have hormone-related symptoms, it is usually not a clear-cut case of one hormone level being abnormal or even one hormone system. Hormones in balance are the key to health. Our compounding pharmacists and nurses, working in triad with you and your physician, can start and maintain bio-identical hormone replacement.
At Cantrell Drug Company, we are fully equipped for saliva testing and hormone consultation. A prescription from your doctor for "saliva test & hormone consult" is required for these procedures.

Our compounding pharmacy specializes in bio-identical, natural hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), including progesterone, estradiol, estriol, estrone, testosterone and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone). We provide saliva testing for hormone levels and a complete consultation service. Our consultation includes a detailed summary and therapy recommendations which are sent to the patient's primary care physician, along with any necessary follow-ups. We use our knowledge to help your physician customize hormone therapy to your body's needs.
Hormone Therapy (HT) usually refers to either estrogen or combination estrogen/progesterone treatment. In order to fully replicate the function of hormones with a replacement hormone, the chemical structure must exactly match the natural hormone that was originally produced and present in the patient. Natural hormones include estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and pregnenolone.
A women's medical and family history is important to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This information should be reviewed carefully and taken into consideration before initiating treatment. Every woman's chemical structure is unique, thus, responding to therapy differently. The strength and dosage form of the hormone is specific to the individual. At Cantrell Drug Company, our compounding specialists work in triad with the patient and physician to tailor a hormone regimen to correct a hormonal imbalance.
A prescription medication for estrogen therapy is the most highly effective choice for treating menopause symptoms, provided hormonal balance is maintained. It can reduce or eliminate various symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, disturbed sleep resulting from hot flashes, and vaginal dryness.
An estimated 80% of North Americans suffer from Adrenal Fatigue at some point in their lives. Prolonged or intense emotional or physical stress commonly associated with busy lifestyles or chronic illnesses plays a large part in Adrenal Fatigue. Your adrenal glands cannot adequately meet the demands of such stress.
Hormones that are secreted via the adrenal glands, such as estrogen, cortisol, and testosterone, significantly affect total body function and are essential to health and vitality. Carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, gastrointestinal function, heart and cardiovascular system, and even your sex drive can experience changes with each increment of reduction in adrenal function. Without the proper balance, possible health conditions could range from allergies to obesity.
Although more than half of all people with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition, they may be experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroid hormone). These symptoms may include fatigue, low blood pressure, fluid retention, cold and heat intolerance, dry skin and/or hair, headaches, low sexual desire, infertility, constipation, irregular menstrual periods, anxiety, slowed metabolism and decreased heart rate, aching muscles and joints, depression, memory impairment, enlarged tongue, deep voice, swollen neck, PMS, weight gain, and hypoglycemia. Hypothyroidism is a leading cause of high cholesterol and triglycerides, and severe hypothyroidism can cause symptoms similar to Alzheimer's disease.
Thyroid Hormone exists in two major forms:
The role of thyroid hormone and consideration of its impact on multiple body systems is emerging as a critical component of balanced hormone replacement for men and women.
