Eltham Veterinary Practice Prescription and Refill Policy:
Relates to the medicines that are prescribed and supplied to your pet, that are classified as: “A Prescription Animal Remedy” OR “Prescription Only Medicine”
This means that only a registered veterinary surgeon can supply them to “animals under their care.” Professional diagnosis and monitoring is required in every case.
It is legislated that a vet must examine your pet at least every six months to continue supplying their medications. More complicated conditions may require more frequently re-examination and/or blood tests to ensure your animal’s medical needs have not changed.
How do you get your pet’s prescription refilled?
As long as your pet is not due for a re-examination and/or blood tests, all you need to do is to let us know you need more medication. You can either phone the practice on (03) 9439 8650 or go to our website and request a refill online www.elthamvet.com.au
We require 1 working days notice to prepare a prescription, this allows the Veterinarian time to authorise the prescription, and ensure stock is available so as to avoid disappointment.
(Special orders or compounded meds can take 5-7 working days to get in.)
