Prescriptions

Generally we dispense prescribed medicines direct to our clients from our own pharmacy at the time of consultation, at the same time providing information regarding their usage and storage.

For all prescriptions, may we politely ask to be given 48 hours notice before dispensing.

We are aware that it can be financially beneficial for clients to obtain these medicines from internet pharmacies and are generally unable to match the discounts offered by them.

We are happy to provide a written prescription for your medicines should you desire one.                 

You can request a repeat prescription online by submitting the form below and we will prepare your medication  for collection at the surgery - if there is a problem with your request we will contact you. If you require a written prescription only please state this in 'further details' along with any other information you consider relevant.

Please note that there is a charge for written prescriptions.

Due to new legislation from the Veterinary Medicines Directorate, we cannot credit a client's account when returning used medication. The British Veterinary Association's Code of Practice on Medicines States "Once stock has been dispensed, it should not be accepted back into the dispensary. No returned goods should be offered for resale because there may have been problems with storage conditions beyond the veterinarian's control."

Prescription Only Medicine 

Prescriptions are available from this practice.

You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V, (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon OR ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a 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 3-4 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances.

The standard charge for a re-examination is £15. (correct as of Jan 2017)

Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
