You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V, (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon OR ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy. We need 24 hours notice to supply a written prescription. Prescriptions will not be written during a consultation as time is not provided for this.
Your veterinary surgeon may prescribe POM Vs only for animals under his or her care.
A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary.
You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.
The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every 3 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. Please ask us about the charge for this consultation. Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
Please note there is usually a consultation fee to pay each time you see a veterinary surgeon.
