Guidelines for purchasing medicines online
Unfortunately we are only able to sell POM-V & POM-VPS products to the UK.
If the medicine you require is marked ‘POM-V’, we will require a completed Veterinary Prescription from your own vet before they can be dispatched. You can either get a completed one from your own vet or we can supply you with a part filled prescription which you will need your own vet to complete. Just contact us if you require this.
You will also be required to tick the box when you add the item to the basket that says ‘Valid Prescription Held’.This just lets us know that you have a valid prescription for the item.You won’t be able to add the item to your basket without ticking this box.Ticking this box means that you are declaring that you have the necessary authority to purchase the item which will be verified against the prescription we receive by post. Making a false declaration is a serious matter and could result in criminal action being taken against you.
To buy prescription medications from us you need to do the following:.
- Have your vet (who must be RCVS registered) provide you with one of their prescriptions.
- Place you order online and pay for your medications
- Email and post to us your original signed prescription with your order number and contact number written clearly on the top (please see Prescription Terms below).
