Prescriptions 

Most of the medicines stocked in our dispensary are prescription only medicines (POM-V). These include flea and worm preparations as well as painkillers, antibiotics and hormones. We are not able to prescribe or dispense any POM-V medicines unless the animal in question is "under our care". This is a legal requirement that we must abide by under current legislation.

It is recommended that we examine animals receiving repeat prescriptions every 3 months. This is understandably frustrating for the owners but it is in your pet's best interests to have regular checks to ensure that their medication is working as it should.

If preferred, clients have the option to purchase medications from a pharmacist or other outlet using a written prescription from the veterinary surgeon. This service carries a charge of £18.50 incl. VAT per prescription and we require 48 hours notice. Please click here for more information on how to order your pet’s medication online.

It is our practice policy to email the prescriptions directly to the client’s chosen pharmacy. A paper copy is kept on file. Please note that schedule 2 drugs require the original prescription to be posted and may take longer to process.

We respectfully remind clients that it is illegal for us to write prescriptions to obtain medicines from abroad.

If you have any queries regarding prescriptions please don't hesitate to ask one of the team.
