Medications - the rules

We keep supplies of most of the medications we prescribe, making it an easy and convenient process to supply you with the medicines that your cat needs.

Although this is usually the most convenient and cost-effective way of purchasing medications, we will provide a prescription for you to purchase medicines elsewhere if you choose. A prescribing charge is made.

When your pet requires a prescription-only medicine, POM, this can only be prescribed by a qualified veterinary surgeon. By law the vet must have seen the cat as often as is necessary to be able to say that the cat is under his/her care.

We will make this decision considering the nature of the condition, the health of the cat, and its individual circumstances.

For repeat prescriptions, it always helps us if you can give us at least 24 hours notice, ensuring that we can comply with the legal requirements, and that we have the drugs in stock. This will avoid any delay or inconvenience to you when you collect the prescription.
