If your vet determines that your pet needs prescription medications, you can ask them for a written prescription so you can buy the drugs online – rather than directly from the surgery. They can charge a fee for writing a prescription, but it should not be excessive (most vets charge between £15 -£17).
You can even download a blank prescription form to take with you – just in case!
Once you have a prescription from your vet, place the medication you need in your basket and checkout. You will then be asked to upload a photo or scan of the prescription during the checkout process. It is that simple.
Order the medication and upload the prescription when you checkout.
When you have ordered online, we can also accept prescriptions sent by email or post:
Email Attach a photo or scan of your prescription and email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to put your order number in the subject line, as this helps us tie everything together and means we can process your order as quickly as possible.
Post As we wait on the post to arrive, this means it will take a little longer to process your order. But some prescriptions MUST be sent by post – so have a quick check to see before ordering. If you do send by post, write your order number on the prescription itself (post-Its or paperclips can easily get separated), then mail it to:
Pet Drugs Online Unit 7B, Burnett Business Park Gypsy Lane Keynsham Bristol BS31 2ED
Where possible, rather than post the prescription we’d recommend you upload it during the checkout process.
We check your prescription and pop it in the post - easy!
