Delivery of aerosols

Due to air freight restrictions aerosols cannot ever be sent abroad by Royal Mail. We appreciate your understanding.

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. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

Is this product made to taste better to a cat then the human one?

Are these tablets made specifically for animals and will be less gag and foaming at the mouth inducing then the human version? If so, can they still be portioned off as 250mg is quite a lot for a cat.

  • Veterinary Advisor

Yes, these tablets are made specifically for cats and dogs and do not have palatibility issues usually. That said some cats can be more fussy than others. The tablets can be split and given according to the weight of your cat. Please see dosage table below.

Is Metrobactin exactly the same as Metronidozole?My old dog has Meronidozole long term for upset tum but this time been prescribed 3/4 of a tablet of these instead( He used to have 400mg metronidozole)?

  • Veterinary Advisor

Yes, Metrobactin contains Metronidazole. The Metrobactin tablets contain 500mg of Metronidazole as oppose to the 400mg Metronidazole tablets. This is why your vet has prescribed 3/4 of a tablet of Metrobactin rather than a whole one.
