Prescription medicines (POMVs) can only be dispensed to animals registered with us and only under authorisation from a veterinary surgeon.
By law, veterinary surgeons must examine the animals on medication on a regular basis. The frequency of this examination to be able to supply Prescription Only Medicines (POMVs) is usually every 3 months but varies depending upon the illness and how your pet is responding. Non POMV medicines can be supplied to any registered client subject to some restrictions.
If you contact us for a repeat prescription you may be invited to come for a check up to enable us to review your pet’s progress and to make sure the treatment is effective before we can supply the medicine. If this check is required it may be possible to do it by a video consultation meaning you won’t have to bring your pet in! You can book one of these through the link on our homepage.
