These activities are spearheaded by several expert committees, including Compounding Pharmacy, Sterile Compounding, Veterinary Drugs, and Veterinary Medicine Information, with assistance from associated staff scientists. This article highlights the key processes surrounding the development of United States Pharmacopeial Convention standard formulations and clinical use information for compounded medications used in veterinary medicine.
