It is often necessary to medicate pets with drugs and specific medicines.
Similar to human medications, some drugs have legal restrictions on their use and can only be dispensed under certain conditions.
Animal Health Centre keeps our pharmacy fully stocked, not only for your convenience but also for emergencies where special medicines such as poison antidotes are required.
By law vets are only allowed to dispense prescription medicines after examining the patient, so please don't be offended if you request medication but are told you will need a consultation first. For repeat prescriptions it is also a legal requirement to re-examine the patient from time to time. This time frame varies with specifics of the patient and condition being treated.
If your pet has an ongoing condition and requires a regular medication we recommend that you ring us first so that we can ensure that the prescription is approved and ready to go when you arrive. If the vet needs to see your pet before a repeat script can be provided then you will be advised of this when you ring.
