Repeat Prescriptions

At Coombefield Veterinary Hospital we are passionate about sustainability and our impact on the environment. In order to promote sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint, we are moving from a daily delivery of medications from our supplier, to deliveries three times a week. This will dramatically reduce the road miles travelled and therefore emissions, delivering medications to Coombefield Veterinary Hospital.

When ordering medication please allow at least 2 working days (48hrs). We will contact you when your medication is ready for you to collect. If your medication has to be ordered in especially for you, this could take up to a week. If your pet is on a long term, ongoing medication, we would advise placing an order for your next month of medications at least a week before they run out.

We can also provide written prescriptions for your animal’s medication, where you can purchase the medication online.  

A written prescription for a single item costs £27.00 and a written prescription for multiple items cost £34.00.  

You can collect the written prescription from Axminster or Seaton, or it can be posted or emailed to you. We require 48hrs for a written prescription to be processed. For more information about written prescriptions, please call 01297 630500 or email

As an RCVS accredited practice, we are obliged as a minimum to re-assess any animal requiring repeat prescriptions and medication every six months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. The standard charge for prescription re-examination is currently £53.00.

Thank you from everyone at Coombefield Veterinary Hospital.
