Availability of Written Prescriptions

You may obtain veterinary prescription only medicines (POM-Vs) directly from your veterinary surgeon, or you may ask for a written prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgery or from a pharmacy that stocks veterinary medicines.

A written prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient, or if immediate treatment is necessary. You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.

Your veterinary surgeon can only prescribe POM-Vs for animals under his/her care. The RCVS has defined “under his care” as meaning having seen the animal immediately before making a prescription or recently enough or often enough for the veterinary surgeon to have personal knowledge of the condition of the animal or current health status of the herd or flock to make a diagnosis and prescribe.  The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring a repeat prescription every 3 months. This may vary with individual animals and at the discretion of the veterinary surgeon.  The standard charge for a medication check is £23.50.

Writing or dispensing a prescription will require 48hrs notice and will cover the treatment of an animal for a 1-3 month period only. Prescriptions must be collected from the surgery. There is a fee per prescription.

Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
