meandmine, our vet says the same as yours although interestingly I get a written prescription for 6 months (the max. period they are allowed to do before the pet is reviewed). The prescription costs £17 but the medication is only £8.90 compared to around £15+ (such a long time since I bought it from the vet I can't say for sure) so for 6 bottles is a saving & we have 2 cats having this so it all adds up & we can avoid delivery charges (the company I use sets their free delivery at £29) as well by ordering from both prescriptions (which are also reviewed at different times) as well as a non prescription item. It's worth checking the prices online scallywag if Beau's going to be on it for at least 6 months along with the vet's charge for a written repeat prescription. However I think you would need a prescription for each item. But still worth checking even if only for the most expensive.
Mine gives me prescription for 3 months at a time at about £11 and I buy meds online for about £38. It is definitively cheaper for me to do that way even if its a bit of a faff! They only do every 3 months as she has to have health check at that time period to as such have go ahead for another 3 months.
Mums first dog was on heart medication for years, it can do wonders!
Just back from vets ( had his checkup) meds are doing their job , got to stop him from jumping up onto the couch thou , easily said than done where My O.H is concerned. I put a cushion in the way and HE removes it
I was only charged for the meds, the consult was N/C can't say that for my old vets I used to go to, it £25 as soon as you walked thru the front door
Ooooo just had a scary moment , Beau was stumbling around just now in the lounge fell down 5 times , hes ok now ( we had just been out for a wee and came back in, no charging about took place ) My heart is racing here
