By law Veterinary Surgeons must examine the animals under their care on a regular basis. The frequency of examination by a Veterinary Surgeon for him/her to be able to supply Prescription Only Medicines, Prescription or repeat Medication is 3-6 months depending upon the illness.
If you contact us for repeat medication or a repeat prescription you may be asked to come for a check up to enable us to review your pet’s progress and to make sure the treatment is effective. This is a legal requirement and is for the benefit of your pet.
If you require repeat medication, we would ask if you could allow at least 24-48 hours notice. Pharmacy medication (POM-Vs – Prescription only medicine and PMLs – Pharmacy and Merchants’ List) can only be dispensed to animals registered with us and only under authorisation from a Veterinary Surgeon.
Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
