Broadly speaking veterinary products fall in to four categories:
POM-V; These products must be prescribed by a vet for an animal under his care. If the vet does not supply them he or she will write a prescription for them and you can have it dispensed by us here at Keen Pharmacy. We have acces to a very wide range of veterinary products through our national wholesaler. Occasionaly your vet will prescribe a human product for animal use under the 'CASCADE' system in which case your vet will give you a prescription to take to the pharmacy. Again here at Keen Pharmacy we will be able to supply you with that product.
POM-VP; These products can be prescribed by a vet or pharmacist and the prescriber will ensure that you are aware of how to use the product and the correct dose and also any safely precautions you must take whilst using it. If you obtain them from a UK registered pharmacy then you do not need a prescription but will need to supply further information to the prescriber.
POM-VPS; These products can be obtained from a vet, pharmacist or registered saddler and include products like horse wormers etc.
GSL; general sale list items can be bought from a pet food store or supermarket although vets, pharmacies and saddlers will supply them also.
