Ordering pet medication and food online
Folly Gardens is here to help, please order your pets medications and specialist food through the below form.
The law states that you may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V (POM-V) from your veterinary surgeon, OR ask for a prescription to obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or pharmacy.
If you require a ‘prescription only’ (but no medication) please telephone the practice directly. Please note a ‘prescription only’ order may not be appropriate if your animal is an inpatient or if immediate treatment is necessary.
The price of any medication dispensed for your pet is available at any time, on request. Please give us 2-3 working days prior to collecting your pets’ medicine or prescription. This is to allow our vets sufficient time to evaluate the case, order and dispense the medicines.
At this time prescription medication can be delivered to your door by post or collected from your preferred clinic. Please indicate your preference for Postal delivery or Collection, there is a small charge for postage which will be added to your invoice.
For certain drugs (listed below) postage is not permitted.
Together with any other controlled drugs which may be prescribed from time to time.
Food orders – collection only.
For your records, a copy of this email will be sent to your inbox at your given email address.
In order to prescribe a POM-V medicine the veterinary surgeon responsible must be able to say ‘The animal is under their care’. This means it will be necessary to re examine your pet and review their case management at appropriate time intervals. This is to comply with both the Royal Collage of Veterinary Surgeons current code of conduct and the Veterinary Medicine Directorates legislation.
Annual Clinical Exams
We offer top quality flea and worm products which are safe and highly effective. These medicines, unlike pet shop products are POM-V. Annual clinical examinations at your pets annual booster visit will generally suffice if your pet is otherwise fit and well.
Six Monthly Repeat Exams
For stable, young to middle aged patients, on long term pain medicine for example, with no other clinical concerns. An example is a fractious cat who shows challenging behaviour at the vets, but is otherwise clinically stable.
Three Monthly Repeat Exams
For patients on long term medicines, such as thyroid, cardiac, renal or hepatic cases. These animals need regular care to ensure they remain clinically stable. This frequency could be indicated in elderly patients with less severe disease.
Monthly Repeat Exams
For severely ill, or elderly patients, or those requiring very close monitoring to remain stable. This frequency may also be indicated if monitoring quality of life and welfare is a concern.
The above are only a guideline. The interval between prescription checks is at the discretion of the prescribing vet and may be altered in individual cases (i.e. stressed cat/aggressive dogs). Please refer to the vet handling your case if difficulties arise, they will be happy to help both you and your pet.
