Prescriptions & Foods

Many of your pets are on long term treatments for conditions like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes and hyperthyroidism. We are happy to dispense long term medication for conditions like these as long as your pet has been seen at the practice during the preceding six months. If your pet has not been seen at the practice during the preceding six months we will request to see your pet for a prescription check. Prescription checks are a good opportunity to check the medication is working properly, make sure that your pet isn’t experiencing side effects from the medication and to check for any change in the condition being treated.

We are trying to keep the costs of some of these long term medications down. We do provide a 15% discount on a range of long term medications through or HHPC scheme. More information on the HHPC scheme can be found here

Please phone the surgery to arrange repeat prescriptions. All repeat prescription requests need to be checked by one of the practice’s vets. We will always do our best to dispense repeat prescriptions as quickly as possible. We do our best to stock all of the commonly dispensed medications. We can generally order in other medications in at twenty four hours notice.

We stock a full range of Hills Veterinary Diets and most types of Hills prescription diets.  Our Hills Diets are very competitively priced. We are happy to provide free advice on nutrition. All of these diets are provided at a 10% discount through our HHPC scheme. More information on the HHPC scheme can be found here
