Returns & Refunds

What do I do if I receive a damaged or incorrect items?

If any items of your order are damaged or not the item ordered, customers are to contact our service department within 14 days and the packaging must be retained until further notice. If a customer accepts a damaged parcel knowingly the damage must be specified on the courier driver’s signature terminal. Please use our online form to contact us should you receive a damaged or incorrect item. Please photograph damages for our investigation.

Before we can replace or refund an item we will ask for the item to be returned back to us by the cheapest means possible. We may request that you return the item back to us by recorded delivery in the post or we may arrange for the item to be collected by our carrier, the item(s) must be packed as received to avoid any possible damage. Should we request you to return the item back to us, please enclose within the package a copy of the receipt given by the post office and we will reimburse you for this charge. Please contact us to arrange collection.

If you have accepted the parcel before realising it was damaged, or the parcel has been left in a safe place when you were not around to inspect it, then we ask you take a picture of the damaged items and contact us as soon as possible so we can take the necessary action and resend an item or refund you accordingly.

You will not be responsible for the cost of the return of the item or the cost of replacing the goods in the case of damaged / incorrect items. However we will be unable to accept the return of any items not damaged or incorrect within the same package. Should you wish to return these back to us you must arrange for them to be returned as per our terms and conditions below.

How long does a refund take to process?

Delays may occur in the receiving of a refund, depending on your bank. We will process a refund as soon as the goods are received back with us in the case of returns, or as soon as we have seen photographic evidence in instances where goods are not to be returned. Refunds are normally processed by your card issuing bank within 2 – 5 working days of us raising the refund but some banks require a longer period to process.

How do I package my returned purchase?

The box that the items were originally shipped in can be reused. If you are unsure then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How do I make a return of a purchased product?

Please contact us directly to discuss any refund so we have the opportunity to put it right. We are here to help you look after your pets.

Once the parcel has been received at our warehouse, we will process the return and confirm by email when the funds have been placed back on your credit card used for the order.

How does your returns policy work?

If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason , we will gladly accept returns of packages within 30 days of the order date and issue a full refund of the product cost.

We will pay for the return shipping of any product that we have sent in error.

If you have purchased something in error,  then it is up to you to organise shipping and pay for the shipping costs associated with sending it back to us.

All we ask is that the product is not used or expired, is in the same condition you received it and is in the original box.

If you want to discuss a return before sending it, please contact us to arrange this.

My pet doesn't like the product, can I return it?

Sometimes pets just don’t like new foods or perhaps it has not suited their constitution in some way. We will happily refund you the price of the food, but it is up to you to organise shipping and pay for the shipping costs associated with sending back the unused portion of the food.

We would also appreciate some info on how your pet reacted to the food, or any upsets caused as it helps us build our database and improve on products and service.

Please contact us to arrange this.

Deliveries

Do I need to be home to sign for my delivery?

During the checkout process you will be asked for any special instructions for the courier to take note of. If you want your package left in a specific place, just make a note of it and our courier drivers will do their best to follow your instructions.

If you have selected the “signature required” option and you are not home, your order will not be left unattended. The courier driver will leave a calling card which you can use to organise another delivery time that is convenient for you.

Free Shipping

How does the free shipping policy work?

Standard shipping on orders over $39 is FREE, so you can order as much as you want without paying any extra. Free shipping applies for all rural deliveries as well.

Standard shipping is defined as:

1. Next working day delivery for all North Island addresses.

2. Two working day delivery for all South Island addresses.

Orders of values less than a total of $39.00 do incur shipping costs and will be noted on your checkout bill.

There are a couple more delivery options that you need to be aware of as we will charge extra for these items:

Signature Required – $2.00 per shipment
Our courier drivers will leave the packages at your door step or somewhere secure that you have requested in the checkout process. If you would prefer to sign for the package, tick the relevant option in the checkout. High value orders will include this option anyway.

Saturday Delivery – $8.40 per shipment
If you order an item before 3pm on a Friday, you have the option to get it delivered that Saturday. Saturday delivery is unfortunately not available in all areas.
