Prescription Only Medicine

According to the latest laws, dog owners are now given the choice between purchasing their veterinary prescriptions through their vet or through veterinary pharmacies much like Vet Medic. Many pet owners are now choosing to order their puppy or dogs’ prescriptions online as it can save money and what’s more, it is delivered straight to your door.


If your dog has a regular prescription, it may be the case that its prescription can be ordered from pet shops as well as online and from the vet. Much like medicines for humans, veterinary medicines are ordered into specific categories which can be dispensed through us if the vet allows it.

Dog owners will find all prescription only medicines available for purchase here at Vet Medic. Should your dog be on a regular prescription, you are entitled to ask your vet to write a prescription which can be sent to us, much like it would work for a human’s prescription.

Making an order for your pet’s prescription couldn’t be easier. Firstly, you must ask your vet to write a prescription for the medicines that your pet needs. Whilst we can send you your dog’s prescription, it is still advised that you take your pet for regular check-ups, it just means that you can purchase the medicine required for cheaper. A veterinary prescription should include the following:

  • Name and Address of Your Vet
  • Professional Qualifications
  • Date Details of the Puppy or Dog to be treated
  • Name and Address of the Owner
  • Details of the medication, including drug, dose and quantity
  • How many times the prescription may be repeated (if any)
  • The Phrase "For animal use only, for an animal under my care" or similar  
  • Signature of your Vet (in ink) 

Once a prescription has been received, browse our site for your veterinary prescriptions online, order and keep a copy of your order number. This order number should be written on the top left hand corner of your prescription and sent to us at:
