Hi, sadly we had to say goodbye to our beloved springer. At 15 1/2 we had to accept his arthritis had finally got to much.
He was on a combination of acupuncture, hydro, massage and drugs and we now have a lot of Onsior and some Amantidine left.
At around £1 tablet it seems such a waste so wondered if anyones dog is prescribed and would make use? We have about 45 Onsior 20mg tablets (so almost £50 worth), and 14 Amantidine.
Not asking for any payment, just someone to make use (maybe an honesty donation to an animal charity or canine arthritis if it takes donations). Will post off, they all have the box with pharmacy label so you can tell disposed from official pharmacy.
“We absolutely cannot give away or sell prescription drugs (POM or POM-V) even if the recipient can prove their pet is being prescribed them. It contravenes all veterinary medicines (government) regulations. There is really no mechanism for a member of the public to receive such medicines against a prescription even if their vet were to write one. Once the medicines have left the vet pharmacy they are not being kept in controlled conditions so no practice should be dispensing such medications either at risk of RCVS/VMD disciplinary action.
So sadly we cannot pursue this approach to help others or CAM… but thank you so much for thinking of us
thank you so much for this!
I have asked one of the team to look into the legalities of giving away meds in returns for donation as yes we would love donations… I hope we can get back to you asap
