Prescriptions

We require 48-hours notice for all pharmacy and food requests. The standard charge is £18 for issuing repeat medications (excluding food orders). We also offer an online ordering service for repeat medications.

We offer free flea and worming checks in order to ensure the most effective products for your pet can be prescribed. There is no prescription charge for our own brand flea and worming products.

We are able to issue written prescriptions at a standard charge of £18 for up to three items. Written prescriptions remain valid for six months.

Vets are required by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) to have examined your pet recently and often enough to ensure that your pet continues to receive the most appropriate medication. It is therefore the policy of this practice to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every four months. We insist that our vets comply with this rule as it safeguards the wellbeing of your pet. For on-going medication checks we charge a reduced consultation fee.

Our dispensary assistant is responsible for ordering our veterinary supplies and ensuring repeat prescriptions are processed. If you have any questions please phone 01395 264747.
