Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

To our customers,

Given the period of uncertainty we are all currently facing, we wanted to create a place on our site which will be updated regularly with key and important information relating to both our business and you, our customers.


We are currently experiencing a higher demand than usual. However, our expected mainland UK standard delivery times for new orders are now 3-5 working days.

Express delivery is available and will be treated as a priority, expected delivery for Express is within 1- 3 working days.

Please note that upon receipt of a prescription, orders for Prescription Medication are subject to our stringent Vet Approval process to prevent fraudulent use of prescriptions, after which they will be processed for dispatch.

If you are still awaiting dispatch of your order, we are working with suppliers to get further information as to when these products will be delivered to us. As soon as we have further information relating to the dispatch of your order, we will contact you via email or telephone. If the wait time for your order is unknown and you do not want to wait, we will refund your order in full. We understand that this is frustrating and we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.

Stock availability

Given the unexpected demand in order volumes, we wanted to highlight that you may see more out of stock products on our website than usual for certain products. We are continuously working with our suppliers to ensure we can get stock in as quickly as possible but this is taking longer than usual because our suppliers are also seeing an increased demand. Our stock levels are being monitored on a regular basis and we will keep you updated.


If you are awaiting a refund, please be assured that you will receive it, however it may take longer than normal to process.

Customer Support
