The FLAVOPET Veterinary System ensures that patients, who need medication, actually take it. The FLAVOPET Veterinary System represents a unique partnership between dedicated veterinarians, a progressive biotech company and caring pet owners; all working together to significantly improve animal health.
Unfortunately for many dogs, cats, and other furry, feathered and scaled friends, the unpleasant tastes and textures of their veterinary medications prevent them from getting the recommended dosage they need in order to get better.
Our scientifically tested FLAVOPET Veterinary System is available at your local vet’s clinic and can easily turn most pills, capsules, and liquid medications into a tasty liquid treat.
With dozens of flavors to choose from, you can customize your pet’s medicine to suit their individual tastes. That means you will eliminate the daily struggle of medicating your pet and ensure they take the medicine they need without them even knowing it.
With so many flavor options and such a large variety of animals we thought we would supply you with a few flavour recommendations for each species.
The flavors highlighted are just the top recommendations. There are still additional flavor options for your pets to enjoy. FLAVOPET offers over 15 flavor options so every pet can have their favorite!

Patient compliance is a significant problem in human health care but, while pediatricians routinely inquire about their patient's preferred form of medication (tablet, capsule or liquid) and how to flavor it, most veterinarians fail to take into account a client's realistic ability to medicate a pet. When clients are asked, "Can you give the pills?" most answer "yes"- even if they know it will be difficult or impossible for them to administer the medication to their pets; they are too embarrassed to admit the truth.
Veterinarians thereby turn over control of a vital segment of their practice to inexperienced, nervous or reluctant clients. Veterinarians who realize the implications and profound potential that improving compliance means, will enjoy significant management and medical rewards.
Practices using the FLAVOPET Veterinary System, experience medicinal compliance rates up to 90%. We offer FLAVOPET™ "to ensure optimal compliance and the best possible outcome... customer support has been fantastic... FLAVOPET has enhanced our practice. Thanks MFS, for a fantastic product!" Dr. D.J., Raleigh, NC.
While complex in development, the FLAVOPET Veterinary System is simple and elegant in execution. In practice, the actual flavoring of a prescription can be performed in just a few minutes. FLAVOPET™ is a “huge improvement over having to call a pharmacy and have prescriptions compounded and then waiting…for the prescription to arrive.” Drs. S.T. & N.R., Fairfax, VA.

Most medicines - even those already 'flavored' by manufacturers - taste so bad that pets have trouble swallowing them. Yet veterinarians expect their clients, to accomplish the difficult, and sometimes impossible, task of administering these medicines at home. What's the point of sending home medicine, if it isn't taken?
Even in animals that are easy to pill, conditions like dehydration or decreased appetite will cause the lining of the esophagus to be drier than normal. Rather than sliding down smoothly as they were designed to do, these pills start dissolving too soon, resulting in very painful, dangerous conditions such as esophageal ulceration, scarring or strictures.
To help pets feel better and to restore their health, veterinarians and pharmacists use the FLAVOPET Veterinary System to turn bad-tasting pills, hard-to-give capsules or liquid prescriptions into tasty liquids. Through years of careful research, development, testing and tasting, MFS has developed scores of tasty flavors that can be safely added to more than 370 animal medications, creating liquid medicines that patients look forward to taking their medication.
Using only high-quality, safety-approved FDA flavors, the FLAVOPET Veterinary System is currently available in more than 2,000 animal hospitals in the United States, Canada and Australia. The FLAVOPET Veterinary System is backed by an unsurpassed safety record that includes over 51 million prescriptions that have been flavoured, without a single instance of allergic reaction or of a prescription losing its efficacy or stability.
Pets that actually take their medications get the benefits of sound veterinary care and return to health; this means many patients aren't patients any more. The FLAVOPET veterinary team is proud of this.
The success or failure of veterinary care often rides on the ability of a patient to swallow medication which is often bitter or just plain bad-tasting. Even the most necessary and effective medication will fail if the patient won't take it: In veterinary hospitals across the USA, Canada and Australia the FLAVOPET Veterinary System has become the solution to the problem of non-compliance. The FLAVOPET Formulary offers recipes for more than 370 veterinary medications for any critter that has feathers, scales or fur.
When pets have a good-tasting medication, the rocky road to recovery is a lot smoother.
Oral Suspending Vehicle
Ora-Plus is a unique suspending vehicle used to simplify the process involved in the extemporaneous compounding of oral suspensions. Medicated powder can be incorporated into Ora-Plus to form elegant, uniform and physically stable suspensions.

- Pediatric suspensions
- Geriatric suspensions
- Naso-gastric preparations

How to Use
Ora-Plus can be used in combination with any flavoring syrup, but it is specially formulated to complement Paddock's Ora- Sweet®. Ora-Plus and Ora-Sweet can be combined in a 50/50 ratio to produce a pleasant tasting elegant suspension.
Ora-Plus is an aqueous-based vehicle consisting of a synergistic blend of suspending agents that have a high degree of colloidal activity. The suspending agents form a structured, gel-like matrix which suspend particles and allow for little settling. Ora-Plus is buffered to a slightly acidic pH to help reduce degradation of medicinal agents through oxidation. An anti-foam agent is incorporated into Ora-Plus to allow for vigorous shaking with minimal foam.
Purified water, microcrystalline cellulose, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, xanthan gum, carrageenan, calcium sulfate, trisodium phosphate, citric acid and sodium phosphate as buffers, dimethicone antifoam emulsion. Preserved with methylparaben and potassium sorbate.
