Pet Owners


Medications are vital to your pet’s treatment.

Please be aware that the ophthalmologist may prescribe a number of drops or tablets for you to administer to your pet. If you struggle to administer certain medications please let the ophthalmologist know at the time of your consultation.

Medication costs are not included in the consultation or surgery fees and will be added on to your invoice. You will be required to pay for all medications at the time they are dispensed. A dispensing fee will apply.

Repeat medications can be requested, providing your pet is a current patient at Eye Vet and has been examined by our ophthalmologists within the last 6 months. Medications are sent via Royal Mail 1st Class ‘Signed For’ service. You will incur a non refundable postage and packaging charge.

Please allow 48 hours notice for repeat medication requests.
