Prescriptions are available from this practice. You may obtain Prescription-Only Medicines Veterinary, (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon OR ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or pharmacy.
Your veterinary surgeon may prescribe POM-Vs only for animals under their care. A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be dispensed for your animal. The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every six months, but this may vary with individual circumstances.
We will request that your pet has periodic health checks or tests. In order to prescribe prescription only medicine drugs (POM-V) your pet should be examined sufficiently frequently for the vet to have personal knowledge of your pet's illness. It is also important that one of our vet ensures your pet is responding appropriately to the medication and there are no undue side effects.
All repeat prescriptions should be requested 48 hours in advance.
