About Us

Our Aim

We understand the attachment owners have to their pets - they are much loved members of the family. We want to supply all of your pet's healthcare requirements at fantastic prices so you can afford the very best for your pet, particularly if your pet needs long term medication to enjoy a full and happy life.

About Us

Pet Prescription is an UK-based online veterinary dispensary owned and run by UK practising veterinary surgeons with years of experience in the veterinary profession. We can legally supply prescription-only veterinary medicines and advise on their safe and effective use.

As practising veterinary surgeons we are in the best position to understand and advise pet owners. The staff at petprescription.co.uk have several decades combined experience of treating sick pets. We have plenty of hands-on experience of drug administration, drug palatability, drug side effects and drug efficacy making us the very best place to shop for your pet's medication and to seek pet healthcare advice. If you have a query regarding your pet's medication rest assured we will know the answer or endeavour to find out, so don't hesitate to contact us!

Legislative Background

In October 2005 it became possible for pet owners to purchase prescription medicines and pet drugs from sources other than their vet provided they have the appropriate prescription. Your vet cannot refuse to supply you with a prescription, but they will need to have seen your pet within the last six months and they are permitted to charge a reasonable fee for writing the prescription.

For more information about the Competition Commission inquiry into the supply of veterinary medicines, Department of Trade and Industry and Office of Fair Trading legislation please click here.

This legislation has increased competition and reduced prices of prescription medicines. It means petprescription.co.uk can dispense prescription medications prescribed by other vets at significantly lower prices due to our considerably lower overheads and bulk purchasing ability. You can have great confidence purchasing from us, knowing that we are a VMD-accredited retailer.

All the products we supply are sourced from the same suppliers your own vet would use, and are exactly the same. We use National Veterinary Services (NVS), one of the biggest UK Veterinary Wholesalers.

Please note that there are many internet sites based outside the UK selling prescription veterinary medicines. It is not always easy to recognise them because they may still use a .co.uk website address. It is a criminal offence to import animal medicines from abroad without the necessary import permits, even if it is just for your pet.
