To book an appointment or to access one of our services, please contact us. We can now offer a range of services for our patients, while still adhering to COVID-19 social distancing rules. Please click here to find out more.

We have to follow strict regulations when dispensing medicines and have to examine the patient at least every 6 months, animal must be deemed under our care to ensure the medication is working properly, that the animal being treated is not suffering any side effects, and that the animal’s health is not deteriorating unnoticed.

The exception to this may be for preventative prescription parasite control where we may be able to dispense these medications as long as we have seen your pet in the last 12 months and have an up to date weight for dosing purposes.

We keep many medications in stock, but occasionally have to order items as required.

If you wish to source prescription medicines elsewhere, we can provide a prescription for £15.96, again pending on a recent veterinary examination. We would recommend sourcing medications from retailers accredited by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) to ensure they are safe and effective.

Once a repeat prescription has been set up we would ask that you give us 24 hours notice of your order when ordering by phone on 01483 536036. 

Giving us 48 hours’ notice allows us check the repeat prescription with one of our vets and to make sure your order is in stock and ready for collection. We will send you a text once its ready for collection.
