Written Prescriptions

Prescriptions are available from this Practice.

You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines Category V (POM-Vs) directly from us as prescribed by the veterinary surgeon in charge of your pet’s care, or you may ask for a written prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or pharmacy. A prescription may not be appropriate; however, if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. Please also note we cannot take responsibility for medications purchased elsewhere. A reasonable charge is made for formulating and supplying a written prescription (please see http://www.eyevetclinic.co.uk/fees for more detail).

Repeat prescriptions

We are happy to provide repeat prescriptions for animals under our care who require ongoing medication according to their individual treatment plan.  The general policy of this practice is to re-assess every patient requiring repeat prescriptions on at least a six-monthly basis but this may vary with individual circumstances. A standard consultation fee will be charged for the re-assessment (please see http://www.eyevetclinic.co.uk/fees for more detail).

We kindly request that, wherever possible, you give us 48 hours’ notice for repeat orders of medication. Certain medications may have to be ordered in for the sole treatment of your pet and in these instances we will require payment in full, even if they are not collected or used. We will always inform you, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your pet
