We had moved and I forgot to update our change of address so my order went to the old address. After my phone call to them asking why I had not received my goods they phoned me back saying my parcel was back with them and would immediately be sent to the new address. The next day my goods arrived. Customer Service was excellent.
Quick, efficient and saved money- ordered what I needed and it was with me within a couple of days, saved a trip to the shop and money.
Absolutely brilliant for my sheltie boy who has colitis. It's the only food that suits him and saves us in vet bills
