Quality product at a great price - just wish a larger size was available. Promt delivery, great service. Thank you.
I would give you 5 stars but for one reason. The order was incomplete but there was no note to say that it was one of two packages. I therefore had to call you to find out that your warehouse was out of the one type of tinned dog food when the order was placed so it was going to be delivered the following Monday. I had to arrange a different delivery address as I was not going to be in and I did not receive a delivery slot text on the Monday. So a) there should have been a note in the first delivery to say more to follow and b) I should have had a delivery text for the second delivery.
No problems, items were quickly dispatched, and at a competitive price. Will be buying from again. Unlike another seller who I bought my first lot of tablets from, after not arriving and paying extra to ensure arrived on time.
THE WEB SITE IS EASY TO FOLLOW, COMMUNICATION WAS PROMPT AND HELPFUL. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SITE TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS IT IS GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER THAN VIA OUR VET!
Very easy to find the product I wanted. Follow up emails informing me where my delivery was and when to expect it to come.
Excellent service and fast delivery. in addition I am always kept informed of when the delivery will be made, with regularly updated texts.
