PCCA UK develops innovative medicine delivery solutions for vets

North East-based manufacturer and supplier of unlicensed medicines, PCCA UK, has announced a launch to increase the options available to vets treating animals with special requirements.

The firm’s new launch is in response to rising pet owners’ expectations for medicines that can be more easily administered to animals in line with their individual needs. One innovation is a transdermal formulation which allows pet owners to rub a product into the ear of the animal rather than oral drug delivery. This not only improves ease of administration but also compliance with medicine regimes.

Jan Armstrong, head of sales and marketing at PCCA UK, said: “Pet owners’ expectations are constantly rising and demand is growing for more personalised solutions to solve pet healthcare challenges.

“We have worked hard to develop our offering to ensure we continue to meet and exceed the demands of the veterinary market, and can offer medicines manufactured specifically for each animal, at the strength they require and in a dosage form they can use. This allows vets to increase compliance and ensure that pets are administered the medication they need.

“By providing such personalised medication, vets can be assured the animal in their care will receive optimal treatment.”

Now that the UK has exited the EU, the company has also ensured that it is in a strong position to provide alternative medications if licensed products are not available due to market out of stock. This could be by providing medicines in a different form or as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).

PCCA Ltd is owned by PCCA Inc and manufactures and supplies unlicensed medicines to pharmacies, veterinarians, hospitals and clinics in the UK and Ireland.
