DX collect, sort and deliver your parcels from us to your door the next working day after dispatch.
This service is fully tracked, most options come with a 2-hour delivery window, and you can either specify a signature or a 'leave safe' place so you don't have to wait in for delivery.
To find the exact cost of shipping your item, and to see all options available, follow these steps:
1) Put the items you wish to order in your basket.
2) Proceed to checkout and enter your delivery address, including country.
3) Delivery information including price will automatically update to what is available to you.
Delivery Instructions - instructions for delivery drivers can be left in the "Delivery instructions" box at the checkout.
DX - 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.
DX will be given instructions 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.
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.
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.

We can deliver most products worldwide through three different delivery services:
Royal Mail Air Mail - For parcels under 2 kg 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.
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.
Shipping to the EU
If you are ordering from our website for delivery into the EU, from 11pm on the 31st of December 2020 the process will change slightly and delivery will be made by one of the following methods depending on which EU country your delivery is being sent to:
Delivery Duty Paid (DDU)
For this delivery method, you will be charged a price at the checkout that includes all relevant duties, taxes and delivery fees and the package will be sent with the necessary customs documents to clear the border and arrive at your address. There will be no other payments required by you in this process.
Delivered at Place/Delivery Duty Unpaid (DAP/DDU)
For this delivery method, you will be charged a price at the checkout with all relevant duties and taxes deducted. This price will be lower than that in the Delivery Duty Paid method and will include the delivery fee. The package will be sent with all necessary customs documents to clear the border, but the courier will email you if there are any country specific taxes to pay. They will provide an easy method for you to pay and once they have received this, they will deliver to your address.
You will be notified at checkout which method your delivery will use depending on the delivery country, and we will also state this on the order confirmation email.
