Repeat Prescriptions

If your pet is on a long term medication, Prescription Only Medication Legislation requires that we examine your pet regularly. We can check that your pet is not developing side effects or other problems and the condition is still responding well to the drugs prescribed. This is normally between 2 and 6 months depending on the drugs and the problem being treated and this is usually charged at a reduced price consultation fee.

If you wish to order a repeat prescription please phone the surgery so the medication can be ready the next day or ordered if not kept in stock.
