Prescriptions

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 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 requires immediate treatment is necessary.

You will be informed, on request of the price of any medication that may be dispensed for your animal.

It is the general policy of the practice to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. There will be a standard charge for a re-examination.

Alternatively, we do have our online shop and pharmacy where you can obtain your pets prescription items. Please request for the required prescription details to be entered onto your pet’s records, which will allow you to order via the online system.
