Our cats are not left out , we are offering reduced cost microchipping ,at neutering time for our pussy cats too ! (Just ask our Veterinary nurses to advise you)
 Prescription Medicine
We are all aware that  our Doctor  will examine us prior to him prescribing medicine , and when we request a repeat prescription , he may allow us none/ one or several  repeat prescriptions , depending on the nature of the illness and the medicine involved .
Similarly, The laws relating to prescribing of veterinary  medicines(POM-V) are the same.
Some  medicines eg Routine wormers & flea control products we need to see the animal at least once a year .
All other medicines , the level of reassessment by our vets , and the number of repeat prescriptions are decided by the veterinary surgeon treating your pet. He/She decides the interval based on his /her clinical assessment of your pets condition.
