Repeat prescriptions over the Christmas & New Year period






Castle Veterinary Centre wishes all clients & their pets a happy & safe Christmas. Thank you all for your on going understanding & support of the changes we have had to adopt during the Covid pandemic. We are proud of the way our fantastic team has worked hard to continue to offer veterinary care: keeping everyone safe while allowing access to the practice. It is with everyone’s on-going safety in mind that we are reducing our opening hours for routine consultations & medicine collections between Christmas & New Year - emergency care & advice will be available 24 hours a day as usual.


Please ensure that you will have enough prescription medication / prescription food to last throughout the Christmas & New Year period so that your pet has a good Christmas too!

Due to our suppliers Christmas delivery schedule, any prescriptions required up to the Christmas & New Year should be pre-ordered by 4pm on Tuesday December 21st, and collected no later than 11am on Friday December 24th.
