PRODUCT INFORMATION AND AVAILABILITY



Product Information


I need more information about a product, how do I find out?


Each item has a product 'Overview' tab and a customer 'Review' tab. These tabs provide more detailed information about the product and also allows you to see other customers' reviews of the product. On some occasions there may be further information available in the form of a video to view.

If you can't find the information you require on the product page you can always simply ‘contact us’

I can't find the product I am looking for?


If you can't find the product using the menus on Our website, try using the 'Search’ option on the home page. Try searching with a particular word i.e. if you're looking for a particular lamb dog food; type in 'lamb' and all lamb options will be available to browse through.

If you still cannot find a product, then we are happy for you to 'contact us' and we will check if the item is available to purchase or we will endeavour to find an alternative product we think will match your requirements.

How can I place a review on a product?


If you open the product page and go to the 'Reviews' tab, at the bottom of this tab you will be able to 'Write a review' of the product.

Please note you can only review a product that you have purchased from ourselves, you will be asked to log in to your account before you can proceed.

Your review will show on our website within 3 working days once it has been processed.


Product Availability


What does ‘Out of Stock' mean?


This means we are temporarily out of stock but we have more stock on the way to one of our warehouses so we will be able to send the product to you as soon as it comes into stock. We will always give you an indication of when we anticipate the stock will arrive and we ask you to give us a few days to despatch it to you.

The product I wish to order is out of stock can you contact me when it is back in stock?


Yes, for products where there is a 'supplier out of stock' we provide an option next to the product description to request an 'Email when in stock'. We will then send you an email to let you know we have the item back in our stock.

You can pay online using:

· Visa

Do I have to pay for the goods before you will dispatch?


Yes, all orders must be fully paid before we will dispatch the goods. For card payments this means your card will be charged when we dispatch your order and not when you place the order. For bank transfer payments we must have cleared funds before we will dispatch your order.

I need a receipt how do I get one?


We will send you a confirmation email once you have placed your order and this will include an invoice / receipt.

If you can't find this then to print a receipt simply log into your 'My Account', go to the section View all Orders and click on shipped orders or open orders. You will see all orders that you have placed if you look for the relevant order number you require a receipt for, you will see a print icon which will allow you to print or save a copy of the receipt you require.

My order is a gift; will the recipient see the cost of goods on their delivery note?
We have made it simple for you to send a gift without the recipient seeing how much you paid. When you are entering the shipping address there is a box for you to tick which indicates the order is a gift. You can then enter a brief message to the recipient and this will be printed on the order sheet.

The recipient will not see how much you paid but you can still see the cost of the order in your order history.

Sorry we are an online only retailer and this isn't possible as your order may be dispatched from different warehouses.
