REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

The guidelines which all veterinary practitioners must follow with regard to the dispensing of veterinary medicines state that a practice can continue to supply medicines for pets under its care for a certain period of time, after which a vet must examine your pet thoroughly and ensure that the treatment is still correct, that no other condition has arisen which could affect treatment and that your pet remains in overall good health. 

For the purpose of dispensing, Riverbank Veterinary Centre will supply medicines for between 3 and 6 months, depending on the particular condition or illness being treated at the time.  This period is regarded by the majority of practices as standard in the veterinary sector and is in the best interests of your pet’s health.

PLEASE ALLOW 24 HOURS for your prescription to be prepared as some drugs require ordering in advance.

Prescriptions can be collected between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday, although between 11am and 3pm is preferred, as this helps avoid consulting hours, which is helpful to clients and staff.

On Saturday’s prescriptions can be collected between 9am and 12 noon.

Unfortunately no refunds are possible once a prescription of loose tablets has been collected or opened. 

We would ask for owners understanding on this important area of legislation covering the supply of veterinary medicines.
