Human medicines are sometimes used in the treatment of animals.
We can sell human medication for veterinary use by phone on receipt of a signed prescription from your vet under the cascade in certain circumstances.
Please contact us on 01204 393847 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to place an order.
Need a prescription?
We accept either:
A standard veterinary prescription – just ask your vet. They may charge a small fee.
Already got a prescription?
You can send us your prescription by the following:
Upload or Email: Scan or send a photograph of your prescription to email@example.com or upload it by clicking here:
Please note: The pharmacy will require a hard copy of the original prescription so once emailed or uploaded copy is received, you will need to post out the original prescriptions.
We verify the authenticity of all prescriptions received with the vet who prescribed them. If we receive a prescription that is invalid, forged or altered, we’ll have no option but to de-activate the sender’s account. Please be aware: it is a criminal offence to alter a prescription and we adopt a zero tolerance approach. Please also note that we can only send prescription medication to the same country that the prescription was issued in.
Post: Please write you order or reference number on top of the prescription and post it out to:
Digital Health Ltd
Suite 8, 1-3 The Courtyard,
Calvin Street, Bolton,
BL1 8PB, United Kingdom
If your pet is on long-term medication, it may work out cheaper to request a repeat prescription from your vet. You won’t have to pay them for a new prescription every time and you won’t need to send us a copy with each order.
Don’t forget to let your vet know you’d like a repeat prescription!
Does my vet have to issue a prescription?
Yes, your vet is legally obliged to issue you with a prescription but are allowed to make a reasonable charge for doing so. This is normally a nominal fee and should not be excessive or prevent you from purchasing a product. From our experience, most vets charge around £5-£15 but it can be more or less than this.
How long are prescriptions valid for?
Under UK law each prescription is valid for a maximum of six months from the date it is signed by a vet. This is restricted to 28 days for Controlled Drugs (these fall under the Controlled Drugs listed in Schedules 2-4 of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 and your vet will be able to advise which drugs this relates to.
