Can’t find the medicines you need?
We can help you…

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.*

We can help you determine the certification you need.

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.*

A Special Import Certificate (SIC) issued by the VMD, is needed whenever a veterinary surgeon imports, uses or holds any medicinal product from outside the UK for veterinary use.
