Information regarding Prescriptions

You may obtain a POM-V (prescription only medicines) prescription from us OR ask for a written prescription so that you can purchase medicines from another veterinary surgery or online pharmacy. A written prescription might not be necessary if your animals require immediate treatment or is an in-patient.
As of July 2024 our charges for written prescriptions are as follows 

£23 for the first item
£18 for each subsequent item

  • ​Written prescriptions are valid for 1-6 months depending on the clinical case and drug required.

  • Your pet must have been seen recently. We will advise you on the frequency of re-examination. This is to comply with pharmacy and dispensing laws.

  • For non-controlled medicines we are happy to dispense up to three months’ worth of medication. We can only dispense Controlled drugs, one month at a time. 

  • You will be informed on request, the price of any medicine that may be dispensed to your animal and further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.

Ordering your repeat perscription

If your pet receives long term medication then please ring or email the surgery should you require a repeat prescription.


Please order your prescription at least 48 hours before you need it via PetsApp, telephone 01969 444201 OR email

Please let us know the name of your pet, the name of the medication, and the dose that you are giving.

Repeat prescription checks - why are they needed?

This health check is essential as it allows us to continue to legally dispense medication for your pet. Medications that we prescribe to our patients must be dispensed by a licensed veterinary surgeon, from a licensed premises, so the small cost of a repeat perscription check not only allows us to check your pet is as healthy as possible, but also allows us to run our dispensary. The cost of this consultation is £24.

This appointment will also provide you with the opportunity to discuss any changes that you may have seen in your pet. 

It is our policy that patients must receive a repeat prescription check every 3 - 6 months, and every 12 months for POM-V parasite control.
