Yes, it can.

If he is on a high enough dose for it to be given from pill form have

Gads, that is more like what we pay for compounded Proglycem (though
still higher than that) and we are in one of the nation's most
expensive areas. One of our's has to be on tiny doses for a
different need and her 120 ml bottle cost us less than that. You
should be paying a lot less. Speak to the pharmacy manager in case
there was an error and if they say there wasn't then buy the tabs
from the vet if possible, or use a different pharmacy.
For compounding we use Belvidiere at 1-800-322-1302, naad you will
