We can supply you with a partly completed prescription which you will need to get your own vet to complete or you can get you own vet to issue one for the products required.

Will require you to complete a short questionnaire at checkout.
If you require a POM-VPS product but intend to use it to treat animal other than what it is licenced for – you will need to get a prescription from your vet before we can dispense the product.
