To ensure that your pet continues to be treated with the most appropriate medication at the correct dose, we are obliged to carry out re-examinations at regular intervals. The time period between these examinations will vary depending on the condition and the medication. These checks will be charged at a reduced consultation fee and in certain cases a blood test will also be required.
For conditions requiring long-term medication, these checks will usually be every 3-6 months.
All pets must have yearly check-ups for repeat prescriptions of flea and worm treatments.
Please allow 24 hours’ notice in order to ensure all prescriptions are available and ready for collection.
To order a prescription, please contact your local surgery or email us with the pet’s name and medication. Written prescriptions are available at a cost of £19.32. If you wish to claim on your insurance for medication, please provide a completed claim form at the time of collection.
Written prescriptions are available from this practice.
