Exceptions

  • Temperature sensitive products will only be sent by FedEx courier to ensure the fastest possible delivery of your order. The items will also be dispatched within special insulated packaging to maintain optimal temperatures for the product.
  • Controlled Drugs - certain prescription drugs are classified as Controlled and can only be sent via FedEx courier as they have to be fully tracked.
  • Frozen Goods will only be sent by FedEx Express pre-noon and will be delivered the day after dispatch before 12pm. A packaging charge of £1.99 is also applicable.
  • Delivery time estimates are from the date of dispatch, not from the date the order is placed. The estimated dispatch times indicate how quickly we will be able to process your order for dispatch.

What if I’m not in?

Delivery Instructions - instructions for delivery drivers can be left in the "Delivery instructions" box at the checkout.

FedEx - If you are not in and the item does not fit through your letter box, your driver will follow the instructions you left on your order (see above).

Royal Mail - Royal Mail don’t have an ‘instructions’ service for most parcels. If they can’t leave it with a neighbour or in a safe place, follow the instructions on their card.

In all instances we cannot be held liable for any parcels which go missing when left as instructed.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Please be aware that some delivery drivers are no longer asking for the recipient to sign for items due to social distancing.

Delivery of Frozen Goods

  • As standard, frozen orders will be sent via FedEx Express, and will be delivered the day after dispatch before 12pm.
  • Your delivery will cost £7.99 if your basket total is less than £29.00, or £2.99 if your total is £29.00 or more.
  • A packing charge of £1.99 is applied to all frozen orders to cover special packaging. This will keep products within the required temperature range for as long as possible.
  • Frozen orders are delivered Monday to Friday - however we can deliver on a Saturday for an extra charge.Earlier slots (pre-9am and pre-10am) are also available for an extra charge.

FedEx will be given instruction to leave the parcel, so please try to organise someone to take the delivery where possible and avoid rescheduling with the courier. If frozen goods are left unattended for long periods of time, we cannot guarantee that the packaging will be sufficient to maintain the temperature required to keep the products frozen, so bear this in mind when scheduling your orders.

Prescriptions

If you order any product that requires a prescription from a vet, we will be unable to process the order until we have received a valid prescription issued and signed by your vet. For international orders going by UPS, we will include a copy of your prescription (if applicable) along with the invoices for customs clearance.

Warehouse Pick Up

If you select this option, when your order is ready, we will send you an email telling you when you can come and collect it.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the current situation we are not offering Warehouse pick up as an option. Apologies for any inconvenience caused and your understanding.

International Delivery

We can deliver most products worldwide through three different delivery services:

Royal Mail Air Mail - For parcels under 2kg in weight, the cost of delivery is calculated in the checkout depending on the destination country and the weight of the items being ordered. This service is untracked and parcels are usually delivered within 3-5 days inside Europe, and within 6-7 days outside of Europe however delays can occur due to each individual country’s postal system.

FedEx International Economy/Priority – The cost of delivery is calculated in the checkout depending on the destination country and the weight of the items being ordered. Economy is a tracked delivery service that arrives within an estimated 3 working days after the order has been dispatched. Priority is also a tracked delivery service, that arrives within an estimated 1 working day after the order has been dispatched. If you are ordering outside of Europe, all parcels require customs clearance therefore an import permit may be requested before your order is dispatched. If you do not have one we would recommend checking with customs before placing your order that you can import these items without one. If you are able to obtain extra documents in advance and send us a copy, we can include these in your parcel for you. Also, depending on your country’s customs regulations, you may be responsible for paying import tax/duties.

UPS Express Saver/Standard – The cost of delivery is calculated in the checkout depending on the destination country and the weight of the items being ordered. Saver is a tracked delivery service estimated to arrive within 1-3 working days after dispatch. Standard is also a tracked delivery service that is estimated to arrive within 2-5 working days after dispatch. For orders outside the EU, only Express is available. If you are ordering outside of Europe, all parcels require customs clearance therefore an import permit may be requested before your order is dispatched, if you do not have one we would recommend checking with customs before placing your order that you can import these items without one. If you are able to obtain extra documents in advance and send us a copy, we can include these in your parcel for you. Also, depending on your country’s customs regulations, you may be responsible for paying import tax/duties.
