Prescriptions

Prescription only medicines

Prescriptions are available from this practice.

You may obtain relevant veterinary medicinal products 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 relevant veterinary medicinal products only following a clinical assessment of an animal under his or her 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 is being prescribed for your animal.
The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions for, or supplies of, relevant veterinary medicinal products every 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances.
At the present time there is no charge for a repeat prescription check, although this is liable to change in the future without notification.
Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
