Medications

Our medications are purchased from a long standing, reputable veterinary supplier. 

Repeat prescriptions

As with humans, many conditions that affect pet animals require long-term treatment. Repeat prescriptions can be collected, but we like to see the patient every 3 months. This is not only to comply with the law (Medicines Act 1968) but also to assess how the treatment is progressing and to check there is no deterioration in your pet. Remember gradual change is much more difficult to spot when you are in frequent contact with someone, we all know the friend that never seems to get older until we see the old photos!

All medicines should at all times be kept in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Otherwise they may deteriorate rapidly and become ineffective before they are used.

Remember, the expiry date printed on any product container is for it unopened: once opened, it may deteriorate long before its unopened expiry date has been reached.

Phone to notify us 24 hours before you want to collect a repeat prescription because a vet must check and approve all repeat prescriptions.

Please note that written prescriptions are available. There is a charge for each written prescription. Please do not hesitate to ask us if you would prefer a written prescription. Please remember that a written prescription may not be appropriate for certain acute medical conditions.
