How to order

Here at Animed Direct we want you to quickly locate the animal products you are looking for. You can find products by using our internal site search facility or by browsing our website.


Use the top navigation bar which allows you to ‘Shop by Animal’ and includes sub categories such as Diet & Nutrition, Healthcare, and Accessories all filtered by animal. We also provide customers with the facility to locate products quickly via ‘brand’ and ‘prescription medications’, when requiring a specific animal medicine.


If you would like the website to present a selection of products based on a search term. Type the brand, product title or keywords into the Product Search located at the top of the right hand column on every page. Then either press the Return/Enter key on your keyboard or click the Search button on the website. The search results can be sorted by price, relevance, bestseller etc. You can also use the filtering option featured down the left hand side of the page to further fine tune your search results.

Shopping Basket

When you shop on and add an item to your basket, it is saved for you to purchase. Items in your Shopping Basket will remain until they are purchased or removed.

As you shop, you can add products to your basket by clicking the "Add to Basket" button located next to each product. You can adjust the quantities by entering the amount required in the quantities box before clicking the "Add to Basket" button.

By clicking the orange Basket icon in the top right hand corner of the website you can view items you have added to your basket. You can also amend quantities or delete an item, make sure that you always click on the Update Basket button after adjusting any product quantities at the basket stage to save any changes.

Remove a product from your basket

If you need to remove a product from your basket, click the Basket icon located at the top right of every page. This will take you to a page where you can view full details of all items in your basket. Click the Trash can logo located under the word remove at the far right of the product line, this item will now be removed from your basket and the value automatically adjusted.

Purchasing Prescription Medicines

A number of products listed on our website are only available for purchase if you have a valid veterinary prescription and have registered your pet with Animed Direct. These products clearly state that a prescription is required during the ordering process. In order to purchase prescription only medicines you must follow our online ordering process, attaching your scanned prescription during this process (unless it is a scheduled drug, in which case we need the original prescription posted to us, not a copy - see Scheduled drugs or fax, or post the original prescription to:

Animed Direct Ltd
CVS House
Owen Road
IP22 4ER
Fax: 01379 770107

Your order will be processed upon correct receipt of the prescription and subject to our stringent validation process.
This simple prescription upload process can also be carried out in advance via the 'My Account' section. The 'My Account' link appears at the top of the page after you have logged in.

Pet Registration

Here at Animed Direct we take the health and welfare of your animals very seriously, and therefore need you to register your pets details with us before we can supply any prescription medicine (POM-V) or other labelled items such as flea and worm treatments (NFA-VPS). During the ordering process you will be prompted to allocate a registered animal to each POM-V or NFA-VPS you are purchasing. If the required animal is not registered against your account at this stage, you are able to register the animal at this point in the ordering process. This simple process can also be carried out in advance via the 'My Account' section. The 'My Account' link appears at the top of the page after you have logged in.
