  1. Do I have to use a veterinarian from Hagyard-Davidson-McGee Associates to purchase from Hagyard Pharmacy LLC?
    No. HDM Pharmacy LLC was established in 1997 to enable veterinarians and horse owners outside of Hagyard-Davidson-McGee's practice to purchase and benefit from our vast inventory and large volume buying power. HDM Pharmacy LLC sells prescription medications and compounds only upon a proper prescription from the veterinarian. Your veterinarian may phone or fax a prescription for your horse in to our pharmacist.

  3. What is the difference between compounded medications and other prescription medications?

    Sometimes a drug that is needed for your horse may not be available commercially or in the appropriate form or strength. In these cases, pharmacists may "compound" or mix the drug upon the veterinarian's request. HDM Pharmacy LLC has a team of four pharmacists who have vast experience in compounding, and extensive knowledge of horses. Our pharmacists use this experience and knowledge to formulate improved dosage forms and flavors of medications specifically for horses.

  5. What is Equidone (domperidone) Oral Gel? When should it be used, and for what duration?
    Domperidone is a dopamine receptor antagonist most often indicated to treat fescue toxicosis and agalactia (lack of milk production). It is generally used within two weeks pre-foaling or up to five days post foaling to treat agalactia in mares. We recommend contacting your veterinarian to determine appropriate use of domperidone.

  6. How often should I vaccinate?

    Vaccination schedules are based on several factors:
    Disease seasonality
    Travel and herd history
    Geographic location
    The age of the horse(s)
    Disease outbreaks
    The use of the horse(s)
    The type of vaccine being administered
    As a rule of thumb, adult horses should receive annual boosters. Some vaccines should be given twice a year. Exceptions to this rule are broodmares, foals, and performance horses. Please contact your veterinarian to plan an appropriate vaccination schedule for your horse.
