Prescriptions

Most medications are prescribed and dispensed at the time of the consultation and after examination by the veterinary surgeon.  Current legislation requires us to carry out regular re-examinations to confirm the usefulness of the medication, accuracy of the dose and the absence of side effects.  We require medication checks at least every 3 months, according to the judgement of your vet.  There is a charge for this re-examination.

For our pets that require ongoing medication we require 24 hours’ notice to prepare a repeat prescription.  This is a service we provide for clients registered with us and for pets we have seen in the last 3 months, or within the year for flea and worm treatments.

 

Written prescriptions:

We can provide written prescriptions for a modest charge for those clients wishing to source their pet’s medication elsewhere, however, we will still need to see your pet every 3 months.  This may not be appropriate if your pet is an in-patient or if treatment is needed immediately.

Medications that we dispense for you do not require a written prescription.

Please ask at any of our branches if you would prefer a written prescription for your pet’s medication.
