Please ring in advance for repeat prescriptions.
Is is helpful if you can give us 24 hours notice as all prescriptions need to be checked with a veterinary surgeon and we do not want to keep you waiting! Repeat prescriptions can be collected (once ordered in advance) at any time from the Shipston surgery, but at arranged times only at the Moreton Surgery.
In the interests of your pet's health and in accordance with current legislation, your pet will need to be re-examined periodically. We charge a consultation fee for this. The reception staff will alert you as to the necessity and timing of these checks. The frequency of these essential checks will vary with the patient's condition and current status, age, nature of the prescription and concurrent disease.
In many cases, it will be necessary to carry out diagnostic tests to make sure that the medication is appropriately dosed and not causing any hidden problems.
Tablets and capsules will normally be dispensed in childproof containers. Please ask if you cannot manage these, as plain containers can be supplied on request.

Have you forgotten to protect one of your family? Are your dogs and cats protected?
We are running amnesties for pets who have lapsed in their essential vaccination cover which allows you to restart at half price.
The dogs amnesty will run in May 2019 and the cats in June 2019.
From March 2019, we are starting to run Wellness Clinics with nursing staff at our Shipston site for Cats and Dogs over 8. These are to check for hidden problems in older patients. Finding problems early is the key to health in old age.
