Drug prescriptions are available from this practice. You may obtain ‘prescription only’ veterinary drugs directly from Lida Vets or ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from a suitably qualified person (SQP) like a veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy or from licensed online outlets.

Your veterinary surgeon may only prescribe relevant veterinary medicines following a clinical assessment of an animal under his or her care. If a prescription is needed there is a charge made. Currently it is £10.

A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.

The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions for/supplies of relevant veterinary medicinal products every 3 – 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. The standard charge for a re-examination is £20.

The current prices for twelve relevant veterinary medicinal products most commonly prescribed during 2016 were:

  • Drontal plus £3.60 per tablet
  • Felimazole (100) 5mg £67.00

Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.

We are allowed to prescribe medication for animals under our care. Therefore, repeat prescriptions can be issued only for pets seen by one of our veterinary surgeons within the last 6 months. If this is not the case, a consultation will need to be arranged prior to issuing a new or repeat prescription.

If your pet is eligible for a repeat prescription, please give us 24 hours’ notice prior to collecting the prescription. If this is not possible, we always aim to accommodate short notice requests.
