Vet Medicine Prescriptions

Our prescription policy follows the recommendations made by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Any pet requiring repeat prescriptions for veterinary medicinal products need to have been examined at the following minimum frequency:

Type

Check-up frequency

Notes

Routine preventative medications (eg wormers, flea control)

every 6 months

Any other medications 

every 3 months

Guide for stable patients only - depending on individual circumstances

If your pet has not been seen by a vet within the last 3 months (or 6 months for flea/worm treatment), please make an appointment before requesting a further supply of medications. Please give us 24 hours notice when requesting repeat prescriptions.

It is possible to request a written prescription, which will enable you to purchase your pet's medication elsewhere, i.e. from an internet pharmacy. The production of a written prescription is a professional service, for which a fixed fee of £14.25 is charged for the first medication and £7.25 for each additional medication you require at the same time.
