Repeat Prescriptions

The Dispensary is open every weekday from 8.30am to 6.00pm and 8.00am to 10.00am on Saturdays. You are welcome to pop in at any time during these hours to purchase flea treatment, wormers etc. and to collect repeat prescriptions. We do however need at least 48 hours advance notice for repeat prescriptions.

If you have a patient who is on long term treatment we are able to provide repeat courses of treatment as long as we carry out periodic re-examinations of the patient in line with the law and at the discretion of the treating veterinary surgeon. We will normally provide repeat treatments for 3 months before we request that a re-check be undertaken. This is a legal requirement to ensure that the patient is suitably fit to continue receiving the current treatment at the appropriate dosage and that the animal can be deemed to be under our care.
