Prescriptions

Prescriptions are available from Moorgate Veterinary Group. You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V (POM Vs) from your veterinary surgeon or ask for a written prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy. Our veterinary surgeons may prescribe POM Vs only for animals under their care. A written prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.

The general policy of this practice is to re-assess companion animals requiring repeat prescriptions every 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. A charge is made for this service. A written prescription fee is payable, this covers the time it takes to consider dosage, interactions, best preparation to use, record keeping etc.

We ask for 24 hours’ notice for repeat prescriptions to be prepared. This allows the vets to individually check each prescription. Not all medications are kept in stock but are available on next working day delivery.

If you wish to collect a repeat prescription from Christow, we ask that you book an appointment in advance. This allows us to get the prescription checked by a vet and sent to the surgery in time for your appointment. Please note: no drugs, including flea & worm treatment, are kept at Christow, therefore it is important if you wish to collect these that they are ordered in advance.
