Sometimes, it may be necessary for your pet to have long-term medication. Should you require a repeat prescription, please give the surgery at least 48 hours’ notice so we can consult the veterinary surgeon. All animals on such treatment need to be checked regularly and you will be informed when you call if a check-up is due. Written prescriptions can also be obtained upon request if you prefer to purchase your medication elsewhere. Please note that there is a charge made for a written prescription. Prescriptions may be ordered via the website, by phone or by calling into any of our three surgeries.
A range of specialist prescription diets are kept at the surgery for your pet’s needs. However, it is always best to phone ahead and check that we have the correct food available as some diets need to be ordered in advance. If they have a condition which requires one of our prescription diets, it is recommended that your pet be examined at least once a year.
If you choose to buy your medicines online, please ensure that you use an accredited online pharmacy. They should always ask for a prescription for prescription-only medicines, and carry the VMD logo to show that they comply with the correct regulations. Unregulated online pharmacies may not supply you with the correct medication for your pet.
From 1 April 2021 in an effort to be more environmentally friendly we will be reducing the number of deliveries we have each week. This means for some non routine medications and food orders we are asking clients to allow 7 working days when requesting them to collection. Food orders can be ordered direct via our website and delivered directly to your door. Please check with the surgery when ordering your repeat prescriptions to see if your request may be affected by this. Thank you.
