Prescriptions are available from this Practice. The fee for a written prescription can be obtained by calling reception.
You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, category V (POM-V) from your veterinary surgeon or ask for a prescription and obtain these from another veterinary surgeon or pharmacy. Your veterinary surgeon may only prescribe POM-Vs for animals under his/her care.
A prescription may not be appropriate if your horse is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary.
You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medication that may be prescribed for your animal(s). We can only prescribe medications for animals that are registered with our Practice and have already been treated and/or inspected by one of the Practices Veterinary Surgeons. To comply with current RCVS regulations we cannot supply medication or prescription without first seeing the animal. The policy of this Practice is to re-assess any animal requiring repeat prescriptions every six months and you will be charged the normal call-out charge together with a re-examination fee. This is to comply with new Government legislation and thus cannot be avoided.
We ask that you give us 24hrs notice when ordering repeat prescription drugs either for collection from the office or to be posted. All drugs must be approved by one of the Veterinary Surgeons before our Reception staff are authorized to issue them to you and in some cases, we may have to order the drugs into stock so please do allow enough time.
All drugs have to be paid for at time of collection or ordering for postage.
