RCVS ‘Under Care’

October 14, 2023


The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) produced new guidelines on 1st September 2023 that state a veterinary surgeon must always perform a physical examination of an animal at the time of prescribing Prescription Only Veterinary (POM-V) Antiparasitic Medications.

Vets can however place a prescription for these medications within your animal’s computer records to allow further dispensings over a 12 month period without the need for repeat examinations.

Please ask your vet about an ongoing prescription if you have previously used veterinary prescription only antiparasiticides,or would like to discuss if they may be of use for your pet.
