If you find a lower price on any product in our pet food range we will refund the difference. Please note that shipping costs are factored into the total product price (e.g. if the comparable store offers a product at $60 plus $5 shipping, the total cost we compare to is $65)
Shipping and Returns:
Availability: Stock is subject to availability. Although we aim to ensure information on our website is correct, we reserve the right to change pricing and availability to its correct form if found to be incorrect.
Delivery: Shipping costs $5 or free for orders over $50. This excludes some bulky items and delivery to some remote locations. Additional freight charges may be incurred for large or heavy items and deliveries to remote locations within Australia. Unfortunately we don’t ship outside of Australia, however we specialise in delivering gifts within Australia to the friends and family of our international customers.
Delivery Times: On occasion delays can happen in transit or at busy times of the year such as Christmas. Should this occur, the Customer Service Team will do everything in its power to resolve the situation and arrange for you to get your shipment as quickly as possible. The following delivery times apply in business days. Items are generally delivered within 7 days (metro areas) and we aim to deliver faster
Payment: Pets Department accepts Visa, Mastercard and PayPal. All prices are quoted in Australian Dollars and include GST.
Exchange: If you are unhappy with your purchase you can exchange any full priced product provided it is unopened and in perfect condition. You must contact customer service within 14 days of receipt of your delivery. Discounted items cannot be refunded or exchanged. Valid proof of purchase is required. If you experience problems with your goods or order then please contact customer service firstname.lastname@example.org. Special ordered large items (i.e. an item we do not keep stock of and where we raise an order direct to you from a supplier), except in relation to faulty or incorrectly supplied goods where your statutory rights are unaffected, may not be able to be returned if they are unwanted. Please contact customer service to discuss.
Refunds: If an item is faulty or damaged you must inform us within 7 days of receipt. We will replace or refund any faulty products and pay for the return freight on receipt and inspection of the goods. Include a letter indicating the problem with the item, and supply a copy of the online delivery note, tax invoice or packing slip.
