We stock an extensive range of medications, both conventional and natural, for the treatment and prevention of illness.
Some medications are over the counter products and do not require a prescription eg medicated shampoos, parasite prevention, some arthritic support products.
Other medications, like in human medicine, are prescription only products eg antibiotics, anti-inflammatories. These can only be legally dispensed by a veterinarian for an animal under their care. Prescritpion medications will usually be dispensed by the veterinarian at the end of a consultation. If we do not stock a required medication on site, we can write a prescription enabling you to purchase the medication from a pharmacist.
We also collaborate with Compounding Pharmacies, enabling easier administration for pets requiring multiple medications.
Repeat prescription medications are sometimes required, and are also often needed for animals with long-term conditions eg heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes.
It is a legal requirement for pets on long-term medication to have regular examinations, at least 6 monthly, in case their health or medication requirements change.
We ask you to call ahead for authorisation and preparation of repeat medication. At least 24 hours notice is required. Compounding medications require a minimum of 1 week notice.
