Veterinarian FAQs

+  Why should I use Stokes versus another compounding pharmacy—aren’t they all pretty much the same?

Stokes Pharmacy is trusted by veterinarians and pet owners across the nation due to our strict adherence to regulatory and quality standards. Stokes’ dedication to quality is recognized by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) which earned us a PCAB accreditation. Our PCAB accreditation reflects Stokes’ unwavering commitment in providing safe and effective preparations to customers.

+  Is Stokes PCAB accredited?

Yes, Stokes has been awarded this accreditation in recognition of the pharmacy’s commitment to meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards.

Achieving PCAB accreditation is a rigorous process. It reflects an organization’s dedication to consistently operating within criteria that facilitate a high level of performance and patient care.

“Stokes has always worked to extremely high standards. This is now validated by our PCAB accreditation that we received just one day after being inspected. We understand that many prescribers and state boards of pharmacy want to see this accreditation as proof of high standards, and we are proud to show it,” said Michael Tursi, president of Stokes Pharmacy. “We are unwavering in our promise to provide the best compounded medications for our clients and patients, now and in the future.”
