Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you.

Is this fit for human use?

  • Veterinary Advisor

This is a veterinary licensed product and we cannot supply it for human use. (It is probably made to the same pharmaceutical standards as human products but that is not the point.)
