How our journey began
Working at the human pharmacy for nearly two decades, our founder Dr. Zee frequently heard about the struggles and challenges pet parents faced when trying to give human medications to their sick animals. Medications that had simply not been designed for animals or their unique needs. Being a fellow animal lover and a dog dad, himself, he was no stranger to this very stumbling block. That’s why, while pursuing a doctorate in pharmacy, he decided to dedicate his career to servicing animal patients as a veterinary pharmacist.
WDP opened its doors in 2017 with the intention of being a space where Dr. Zee could provide animal-friendly medication options to pets. Dr. Zee started introducing his unique animal-friendly medications to veterinarians and pet owners in his local town of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and immediately realized just how important the work he was doing was. He knew he was onto something special-he was making a difference in the lives of his animal patients, just as he had always wanted to do.
In those early days of 16-hour shifts and all-nighters, Zena, Dr. Zee’s favorite pit bull was right by his side providing lots of cheerleading and moral support. Although Zena is no longer with us, Dr. Zee is now accompanied by a wonderful team as he continues to meet the demand of our beloved customers who have shown nothing but unwavering support and appreciation.
We take immense pride in being able to serve Wood Dale for the past 5 years; from helping pet parents find ways to give their furry friends life saving medicines to creating curated solutions for our vets, Wood Dale Pharmacy has been pioneering the way for the modernization of animal pharmacy. Every chewable treat, tiny tablet, paw paste and more is lovingly created by our team of talented vet pharmacists and technicians in our state-of-the-art pharmaceutical lab in Wood Dale, IL lead by our head pharmacist, Haris. Wood Dale Pharmacy is committed to working with local animal related businesses whenever possible, and feels fortunate to be able to support the animal community with WDP Gives Back, a charitable initiative through which we donate a percentage of all sales every month.
Five years, 20 employees, dozens of 5-star reviews, and thousands upon thousands of custom-made pet medications later, we can’t even begin to express our gratitude for this journey and can’t wait to see what is next! We hope we can serve you soon and you can experience some WDP magic for yourself!
We’re cooler than the rest
We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all when it comes to pet meds. Every pet deserves purrsonalized meds – and we are there to give them just that!
Smart, customized solutions
Multiple meds a day making it hard to keep up with the daily routine? Our compounding pharmacists combine multiple medicines into one pill – so one pill is all your fur baby needs!
Allergies? No worries!
Could your pet be allergic to the ingredients in their regular medications? Animal proteins, additives, alcohols and artificial sweeteners can all be potentially problematic. That’s why we make medicine with the active ingredients your pet needs, but without any of the artificial ones they don’t.
Pet medicine made Affordable
With some exclusions, most maintenance medications cost less than $1 a day when you order a 90-day supply. Our mission is to whip up the best compounds for your pets at a price you can afford.
