Can Direct-vet.co.uk replace my veterinarian?

Answer: No. Direct-Vet.co.uk is not a substitute for seeing your veterinarian. To ensure the health and well-being of your pets, it is important to schedule regular appointments with your veterinarian.


Why is there no prescription medication on Direct-Vet’s online store?

Answer: Simply because it’s illegal! Some so-called veterinary sites readily sell you prescription drugs. It’s important to note that this goes against the veterinary code of ethics, is not legal, and could endanger your pet!

In fact, prescription drugs, including antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, some anti-parasitic drugs, etc., are pharmaceuticals that require an exact dosage, and if used improperly or at the incorrect dosage, can have devastating health effects on your pet. That is why these medications are only supplied on a prescription basis, by qualified pharmacists, or by licensed veterinarians.


In addition to the health risk, you run the risk of being held criminally responsible if you use these sites. In accordance with Act L.5442-10 of the Public Health Code, writing a prescription without a clinical assessment or a health report can result in 2 years in prison and a fine of 30,000 Euros.
