Can I prescribe on Vetster? (UK)

Prescribing POM medications, via virtual consult is permitted in the UK.

Prescribing via remote means, the veterinary surgeon, pharmacist, or suitably qualified person (SQP) must be satisfied that:

  • Alternative, non-POM-V medications are not suitable for the situation.

  • You have sufficient information to diagnose and prescribe accurately.

  • The benefits outweigh any risks.

  • Follow-up service is available, whether through the initial veterinarian or the client's home veterinarian*.

For full details, please consult the RCVS website.

*In the event you are unavailable for the client through Vetster, follow up services are communicated to the client post appointment via email.
