Pets suffering from chronic disease conditions often need long-term medication to give them an improved quality of life, and enhanced life expectancy. Most of such medications are legally classed as Veterinary Prescription Only Medicines (POM-V). In line with the relevant legal requirements, these medicines can only be prescribed to animals under our care.
In long-term ailments a review of the patient care will need to be performed at regular intervals, for your pets well-being. The general policy of the practice is to reassess an animal every 3 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances, such as the nature of the disease, age of the animal, how well the animal is responding, and the likelihood of any side effects developing.
You may ask for a written prescription to obtain medicines from another veterinary surgeon or pharmacy, there will be a charge for this.
For any repeat or written prescriptions, please give us 48-hours notice.
