You may obtain Prescription Only Medication, Category V (POM) from your Veterinary Surgeon OR ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another pharmacy.
A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary.
All written prescriptions issued will incur a fee plus VAT. Contact the surgery for details or see our notice board in reception for the cost involved. You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.
Medicines on prescription will be issued for a maximum of 3 months (28 days for controlled drugs). This is in line with guidelines issued by the Society of Practicing Veterinary Surgeons.
The general policy of our practice is to re-assess the animal requiring repeat prescriptions every 3 - 6 months. This may vary with individual circumstances.
Please contact reception to enquire into the cost for a re-examination.
