You may obtain prescription only medicines veterinary (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon or ask for a written prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon, pharmacy or online supplier.
Your veterinary surgeon may only prescribe POM-V’s for animals under their care.
A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary.
You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be dispensed for your animal.
As an RCVS accredited practice we are obliged as a minimum to re-assess any animal requiring repeat prescriptions and medication every six months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. The standard charge for re-examination is currently £28.50.
Written prescriptions for up to three items are currently charged at £18.00.
Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
