Dispensing of Medicines
To comply with pharmacy regulations, the practice requests a minimum of 48hrs notice to dispense medicines.
We are only able to prescribe medicines to animals that are under the care of our veterinary practice. This means that your animal must have had a consultation/prescription check within the previous 3 months.
In situations where we have not seen your animal for more than 3 months, you will be required to make an appointment with a veterinary surgeon before medicines can be dispensed and will be invoiced for a prescription check.
Under RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) guidelines we are able to dispense flea and worming medication to animals that have had a consultation with a veterinary surgeon within the previous 12 months.
We are unable to accept the return of any medicines once they have left our premises and whilst we are able to dispose of any unused medicines, we are unable to issue a credit for them. Therefore, we would like to remind you to check that all medicines are correct before you leave the practice.
Written prescriptions are available from this practice.
