Reorder Medication Policy
Prescription (S4) medications
For legal reasons we can only dispense prescription (S4) medications if your pet is under our current care .This is defined as where we have examined your pet within the previous 12 months .
Ongoing monitoring and medication supply
Your pet ages much quicker than we do. It is necessary to see your pet frequently through the year if they have long standing conditions. If your pet is on anti – inflammatory medication , or has a condition such as diabetes, heart or kidney disease ,they should be seen more regularly.This may be every 3 or 6 months after the initial stabilisation period.
Medication dosage may need to be adjusted and blood tests performed to ensure liver and kidney function are adequate.
