What programme was this? Do you have a link to it? I'm sure us pet owners would like to hear about it.

Vets are allowed to charge you for prescriptions - up until October last year they couldn't, but then the law was changed.

I agree - I meant to chase it up myself but forgot!

Sorry marky - on this occasion your info is wrong.

Just to say I know people who get a prescription then take it to Northolm in Sunderland (Houghton Le Spring) they have a website the lady who owns it is a qualified Vet I understand and you get the medication at a lower cost. May be worth checking out for anyone interested. Oscar

I think there's quite a few online sites who do pet medication much cheaper than the vet does - one of my neighbours uses one but not sure what it's called.
