Certain pet medicines carry a legal classification, which, means they can only be prescribed by a qualified Veterinary Surgeon (much in the same way that a Doctor prescribes human medicine). These medicines are known as Prescription Only Medicines – Veterinary or POM-V for short. If you chose to purchase POM-V medicines from an alternative source, you will require a written Veterinary Prescription from the Veterinary Surgeon who looks after your pet.  We do offer our clients the options of written prescriptions on request.
