Here at Merlin Vet we offer UK vets the widest possible range of treatment options for any clinical situation which they may encounter.
Medicines discontinued or out of stock? We'll find an alternative; in fact, we might already hold it in stock. Our Wholesale Dealers Licence enables us to carry stock of unlicensed product so that when you need it, it's there for you: fast.*
If we don't stock what you need, we will always try to consolidate orders for you so that you can save on shipping and administration costs from suppliers.
If as a vet you are able to demonstrate clinical need, the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) will consider an application for you to use products that may not be licensed in the UK.*
We can help you to ascertain whether you need a Special Import Certificate (SIC), issued for veterinary medicines that are licensed in the EU, or a Special Treatment Certificate (STC), which is issued either for veterinary medicines licensed outwith the EU or for a situation where a human medicament may be used to treat an animal.*
Visit the VMD website and view their list of special import products. If you don’t see what you need there, please get it touch with us and ask for it, we like a challenge! On the VMD site you'll find Merlin Vet listed as a supplier.
From the main VMD menu, select: "Apply for a Special Import". Then choose "I am a Veterinary Surgeon and want to Import...". Finally, enter your RCVS Number and follow the prompts. On receipt of your certificate, just email it to us and we'll send you the goods!
When VMP are supplied under the 'prescribing cascade' it must be remembered
that this is off licence and as such manufacturers may not accept responsibility for any
adverse reactions. It is vital that written informed consent is obtained
from the animal owner at the time of supply.
