Neels Pharmacy Is Compounding Specialist For People & Pets Alike

by Jon P. Frieda

Neels Pharmacy was established in 1932. Over eighty years and four generations later, our pharmacy has never changed hands. We are a family business and we strive to treat all of our customers and patients like family.

Recognizing a need for custom compounded prescription medications for humans and animals, Neels Pharmacy has established professional relationships with many physicians and veterinary clinics throughout the St. Louis community. Over the years we have compounded thousands of medications for humans and pets. In order to make the administration of medication a more pleasant experience for both the animal and owner, we make compounds for canines, felines, birds, lizards, and more; animals as small as a mouse all the way up to large animals including kangaroos, ponies, and elephants. In short, we love animals!

The compounding of medications by pharmacists is a long standing part of pharmacy that remains an important component to patient care. Compounding is the mixing of one or more drugs to fill a doctor’s prescription. At Neels Pharmacy, there is no such thing as a one size fits all scenario. We specialize in customizing prescription medications to meet the unique needs of each individual, and aid physicians and veterinarians to treat disease and disorder in humans and animals more efficiently and effectively.

With a doctor’s prescription, we can formulate individualized dosages and strengths. We can eliminate preservatives and additives that can cause allergic reactions. We can integrate several drugs into one combination, add or eliminate flavors, and much more. We specialize in compounding chewable animal treats, flavored sprinkle capsules, solutions and suspensions, topical dermatological creams, salves and gels, bio-identical hormone replacement, dental preparations, transdermal pain gels and oral pain cocktails, hospice preparations, rectal and vaginal suppositories, and more.

Our goal is to serve as a reliable and dependable resource for the St. Louis community by helping individuals and families to achieve optimal health, wellness, and vitality. In addition to our wide selection of clinical nutrition supplements, herbal and homeopathic remedies, aromatherapy, and skin care, the lost art of pharmaceutical compounding for humans and animals is our passion, and a long standing part of our family tradition that remains alive and well at Neels Pharmacy today.

From our family to your family, we respectfully invite you to experience the Neels Pharmacy difference. With specialized training and over fifty years of combined compounding experience, at Neels you will enjoy peace of mind, knowing that you can approach your health concerns with confidence.
