NexGen Chews

Posted in New Products on Oct 23, 2018

Why do we need multiple options to dose our patients?

Compliance with dosing of medication is a challenge at the best of times. However, compliance is critical to getting the best results when your patients' dose their animals.

Interesting statistics:

Did you know that studies tell us:

  1. The rate of compliance for chronic medication is 76%. This translates into a failure rate of almost 1 in 5 patients.
  2. When pet owners are shown one or more ways to administer medication their individual dose compliance rates increase from 59% to 76%.

This is why NexGen Pharma is spending significant time and attention to providing alternative dosage forms for the most common medications.
