Delivery Update for May

We have some great news regarding our medicine deliveries. From Monday 4th May our wholesaler will be delivering to us daily. I can tell you that there was great excitement in the office when we received this news.

Why is this news? It means that are delivery lead-time will revert to our standard 2 working days from receipt of an order. (This lead-time is dependent on receiving a correctly completed prescription from your vet. If this is delayed, your delivery will take longer.)

The team at Dawes Farm have been absolute stars getting orders out over the period when we were only receiving deliveries every other working day, which sometimes meant only 2 deliveries a week.

I also have to say that all of our Farmacy customers have been incredibly understanding and patient during this difficult time – we thank you!

So, apart from the products that are out of stock due to manufacturing issues, we are back to normal for now.

We do want to remind you that we still have the 2 May bank holidays that will be upon us soon.

The office will be closed on Friday 8th May and Monday 25th May, so please bear that in mind when ordering.

You can continue to order online, but orders received on those days will not be processed until we return to the office the following day.

If you need something urgently whilst we are closed, please speak to your vet practice who should be able to help you.

Product update: Bovi-bond Glue

Bovi-bond glue is now available in a bigger size (210cc) at a lower price of £22.35. The mixing tips are sold in packs of 10 separately, at 89p per pack, which is still cheaper than the old pack that included the mixing tips – winner!

That’s the good news.

Unfortunately, the different size requires a new applicator gun, but that is also much cheaper than the old gun at £38.00.

For those of you who already own the Bovi-bond glue gun we have added a product that does fit that applicator, and is used by the Westpoint foot trimmers – Cowsfeet Trimmers Choice adhesive.

So, the choice is yours:

Update your kit to continue to use Bovi-bond glue

Stick with your old Bovi-bond applicator and change to Cowsfeet Trimmers Choice adhesive

Update on supply of Tetra Delta and Synulox LC

We have recently received an update from Zoetis regarding supply of Tetra Delta and Synulox LC which we wanted to pass onto all of our customers.

As previously advised, both products are currently out of stock and the expected date for new supply has now been extended due to the COVID-19 outbreak which has unfortunately affected their efforts to reinstate these products.

Sadly this now means that we now do not anticipate Tetra Delta or Synulox LC returning to the market before the fourth quarter of this year, although this is subject to confirmation.

We will continue to keep you up to date with any changes as we receive them. We appreciate and thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience and concern these challenges are causing.

Please speak to your vet regarding alternatives.

Medicines Delivery delays

We are sorry to advise that our lead times for delivery will be longer than usual, as our stock deliveries have been changed from daily to every other working day. We expect that the turn around will now be 3-4 working days depending on the day of the week that you place your order with us. 

While we can. We will continue to allow collections from our Warnham office. The only change is that you will need to call us on the day that you are collecting to arrange a specific collection time and get confirmation of the collection location. Smaller orders will be left in the out of hours box, but larger orders will still need to be picked up from the barn.

We are currently putting a plan into place to try to ensure stock availability, and to mitigate delays as much as we can.

From your perspective this makes it even more important that you forward plan your medicine requirements as much as possible, especially for vaccines where we CANNOT guarantee the normal 2 working day turnaround.

We also wanted to remind you that if you need emergency medicines, you should contact your vet practice directly.

We continue to monitor the situation, and will regularly update the website, social media and emails to those of you who are registered with us for marketing purposes. If you are not registered with us and would like to be kept up-to-date you can sign up here.

If you had previously opted out of receiving emails from us, but would like to opt back in, please send an email to office@farmacy.co.uk confirming your name, email address and stating that you want to opt in to receive emails from us and we can then add you to our mailing list.

Alternatively, follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.

We are committed to being here to support you and the health of the animals in your care. Thank you for your valued support and please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any queries.

We’re putting plans in place to minimise disruption during the Coronavirus outbreak

We wanted to update you on the steps that we are taking to help minimise the spread of COVID-19, and also to ensure uninterrupted medicine supply where possible. 

We are continuing to follow and monitor official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England. We are putting protocols in place to ensure that we can deliver the usual standard of service to you whilst protecting the health and welfare of our staff.

We are busy working with our supplies of veterinary medicines and vaccines so that we can ensure a continuous supply to you. One of the benefits of being part of a larger veterinary group like vetPartners is that we have access to medicines from a number of sources.

We would however, appreciate it if you could give us as much notice as possible when ordering medicines. We know that due to our normal lead time of 2 working days that customers often order close to the date that they want to use a product, but would ask that you that you look at planning a bit further ahead, especially for vaccines. 

We are also working closely with our courier service to ensure that deliveries are as unaffected as possible, but please check the site and emails for further updates.
