We can prescribe medicines on prescription if necessary after your animal has had an initial assessment by our vets.
You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon OR ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy.
Your veterinary surgeon may prescribe POM-Vs only for animals under their care.
The general policy of Buchan Vets is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every six months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. There is a standard charge for re-examination for a repeat prescription. There is also a standard charge for a written prescription.
Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
Please allow 24-hours for us to process a prescription and make the medications available to you. We must adhere to strict legal guidelines when dispensing medication and all prescriptions must be signed off by a vet.
