Prescription Medication Sales
If you are placing an order for prescription medication, you will only be able to order up to and including the exact amounts specified by your Vet. If you have paid for more medication than your prescription allows you will be refunded or your account may be credited if preferred.
Expiry dates on all medication (including prescription and licensed) will depend on what is supplied to us by the manufacturers. Whilst we endeavour to supply medication with an expiry date of no less than six months, this will not be the case with all products.
Long term medication use: if you are ordering medications for long term use it is your responsibility to check the expiry dates with us before purchasing. If the medication expiry date is less than six months from the date of purchase, and you intend to use it for more than six months, we will refund/replace the items you cannot use. If the medication expiry date is six months or more from the date of purchase, we will not refund or replace.
It is an offence for a person to submit a fraudulent prescription to obtain a veterinary medicine and for a person to alter a prescription unless authorised to do so by the prescriber. In such cases, customers will be blacklisted from buying any medications through Viovet, and will be reported to the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.
Account Credits may be applied to customer accounts and can be used on new orders that exceed the amount of the credit. Multiple credits can be used against a single order. Part credits cannot be used. Available credits will automatically be applied to your order on the Order Confirmation page. Credits will be applied automatically on the order immediately following the grant of credit. Please allow 3-5 working days from the date of processing for refunds to clear in your bank account.
All credit and debit card transactions are carried out on a secure payment service provider. For online orders VioVet receives only partial details of your payment card (type of card and the last 4 numbers). VioVet does not receive full card details for online payments.
If you request an order by telephone your payment details will be entered directly into our website for processing. Your card details will not be written down and will not be recorded as part of our call monitoring. VioVet Ltd does not store your written card details.
Where orders are placed for products which require a prescription, the prescription must be received by us before the order can be fulfilled. Prescriptions can be sent to us by email, uploaded to our website, posted to or delivered in person at our offices. Some prescriptions must be presented as a hardcopy before they can be dispensed. Please check the specific instructions on your prescription or contact our Customer Service team if you have any questions. If we believe for any reason that a prescription is being used fraudulently we will report this to the relevant authorities and reserve the right to refuse &cancel the order, in this case a full refund of any monies paid will be provided.
Orders will be processed and dispatched as soon as possible. All orders and payments will be screened for evidence of fraudulent activity. In some instances, this may cause a delay in the dispatch of your order. Orders will be dispatched once all of the items ordered are available. If there is a delay on a specific item, you may be contacted to establish whether you would prefer to split the order or wait for a single delivery. We endeavour to supply orders accurately, however the responsibility remains with the purchaser and user of all products to verify that the product is correct prior to use.
If your order arrives damaged please contact our Customer Service team who will arrange a replacement or refund as preferred. Damages should be notified to us within 30 days of receipt. We may ask you for photographs of any damages prior to processing a claim. When you place an order, you may be asked for delivery instructions including a ‘leave safe’ preference. Our couriers will follow these instructions wherever possible.
Payment will be taken at the time of requesting the order (not at the point of dispatch). All items are offered for sale subject to availability. We aim to dispatch all orders within 3 days of receiving payment and (if required) receipt of a valid prescription.
Lost in transit - if an order has not arrived and was dispatched with Royal Mail, please wait 10 working days from the date the item was due to be delivered before contacting our support team. We will then be able to process this as a missing item. For International orders with Royal Mail Air Mail, we need to allow 20 working days from the due date of delivery.
If an order is dispatched with a courier it will be fully tracked and you should contact Customer Service as soon as you believe it may have gone missing in transit.
For all orders, regardless of delivery method, you must report missing items to us within 35 days of the date of dispatch.
Incorrect Address - you are responsible for entering your full postal address correctly, and selecting it on each order. VioVet takes no responsibility for missing items that have been sent to an incorrect, old or inaccurate address.
If delivery is likely to be subject to undue delay, we will contact you by email. You will have the option of a full refund in this case, or of waiting for availability (this might be due to a manufacturer or other reason beyond our control). Delivery to some addresses may carry a higher delivery charge for certain items. This will be displayed prior to making payment. Other conditions do apply regarding deliveries. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you are also agreeing to what is stated on our delivery information page.
The terms and conditions for Royal Mail, DX and UPS can be found at the following links:
By selecting one of the delivery services above you will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions of carriage.
If you sign up for a regular delivery we will do our best to ensure that you receive your order on the date selected. On occasion this may not be possible due to bank holidays, weekends and stock availability. If you have any queries regarding your regular delivery, please contact Customer Services. You can edit or cancel your order from your customer account at any time.
Payments for regular delivery orders will be taken when we prepare the order for dispatch. If for any reason the payment fails, we will contact you for alternative payment details prior to dispatch. If you are ordering medication which requires a prescription from your vet, you will need to make sure we have this at least 4 working days before your due delivery date or there may be delays in shipping your order to you. Prices charged for products will be the same as those charged on our website at that time, therefore regular deliveries will benefit from any promotional activity in place at the time.
You are responsible for any VAT, tariffs, duty, taxes, handling fees, brokerage charges, customs clearance charges, etc. required by your country for importing consumer goods.
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
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.
Delivery Duty Unpaid
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.
You warrant to us and guarantee that before you use anything purchased from us, you will:

In accordance with The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you are entitled to cancel an order and receive a full refund up to 14 calendar days after you receive the item from us. This applies even if you change your mind and no longer want an item. The refund will include the minimum postage costs you could have chosen when placing your order. You are responsible for the cost of returning the item to us. You must notify us of your intention to cancel the order and you must return the item to us by recorded delivery within 14 days of notifying us. We will then refund your money within 14 days of receipt of a returned item. It is your duty to take all reasonable care of any items to be returned, including their packaging, up until the time we receive them back from you. Any damage will result in us being unable to refund part or all of the money you have paid.
Items that cannot be returned
The 14 day limit to request a refund does not apply to any item which is faulty, unfit for purpose, or not as described at the time you placed the order. For damaged and faulty items, you have 30 days to arrange a return/refund.
For all items returned after the 14-day period, you are asked to provide a written explanation of the reason for the return. Returned items in this circumstance may or may not be due a full refund, depending on the circumstances. (For example if you used an item for a while before it broke, you may have to bear some of the cost for the period of time you were able to use it.) In normal circumstances, the limit of our liability for compensation for orders which are delayed or do not arrive at all, will be the value of the order placed. You will not be due for any additional compensation (for instance if you decided to take time off work to receive the order).
