Such modifications and additional terms and conditions will be effective immediately and incorporated into these Terms once posted on the Website. Whilst Petmeds™ will endeavour to inform you when modifications arise, it is not obliged to do so and your continued use of the Website will be deemed acceptance thereof. By using the Website you signify your acceptance of the Terms:
Accuracy of content
Petmeds™ has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this Website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and all products have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this Website. All prices are displayed inclusive of any applicable sales tax. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Petmeds™ disclaims all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy of the information contained in any of the materials on this Website. Petmeds™ shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise from the use of any of the information contained in any of the materials on this Website.
'RRP' means the resale price of a product recommended by the manufacturer or supplier. PetMeds only specify the product RRP where this has been disclosed by the manufacturer or supplier.
The Website and its content are provided “as is” excluding any warranties of any kind, either express or implied, to the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law including (but not limited to) the exclusion of warranties of title, merchantability, satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement of proprietary or third party rights. Petmeds™ further accepts no responsibility or liability for functions contained on the Website and makes no warranties that the Website will operate uninterrupted or error-free or that defects will be corrected. Please note that some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some or all of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Petmeds™ does not warrant that the Website is compatible with your computer equipment or that the Website or its server is free of errors or viruses, worms or “Trojan horses” and Petmeds™ is not liable for any damage you may suffer as a result of such destructive features. Petmeds™ shall not be held responsible for content provided by third parties. Petmeds™ is also not responsible for the reliability or continued availability of the telephone lines and equipment you use to access the Website. These Terms do not affect your statutory rights or your legal rights as a consumer.
While Petmeds™ has made every effort to ensure that the information contained on the Website is up to date and accurate, Petmeds™ does not guarantee or give any warranty as to the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any information or material on the Website. Petmeds™ is not responsible for any errors, or for the results obtained from the use of this information. Where Petmeds™ is advised that information is incomplete or inaccurate Petmeds™ will amend the information on the Website. All information on the Website is provided 'as is', with no guarantee of completeness, accuracy or of the results obtained from the use of this information, and without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to warranties of performance, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. In no event will Petmeds™ or its partners, agents or employees be liable to users or anyone else for any decision made or action taken in reliance on the information on the Website or for any consequential, special or similar damages, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
To register with Petmeds™ you must be over eighteen years of age. You must ensure that the details provided by you on registration or at any time are correct and complete. You must inform us immediately of any changes to the information that you provided when registering by updating your personal details.
When you register to use the Website you will be asked to create a password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account and any activities that occur under your account. Petmeds™ shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise as a result of any failure by you to protect your password or account.
Payment and Delivery
Petmeds™ accepts payment via credit/debit card, PayPal and Google Checkout. Petmeds™ takes payment up front, however if Petmeds™ is unable to deliver the order Petmeds™ will provide a refund via the same mechanism payment was made.
Most orders are dispatched within 24 hours when placed on a working day, but Petmeds™ aims to dispatch all orders within 3 days from the first working day after the order has been placed. Petmeds™ will communicate any delays to the customer.
Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that Petmeds™ does or says will amount to any acceptance of that offer until Petmeds™ actually despatches an item to you, at which point a contract will be made between us. At any point up until then Petmeds™ may decline to supply an item to you. For the avoidance of doubt, any such contract will be deemed to have been concluded in the United Kingdom. If Petmeds™ declines to supply an item to you and you have already paid for it, Petmeds™ will give you a full refund of any amount already paid for that item in accordance with the Returns and Refunds page.
You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point at which you click on ‘submit’ on the final page of the ordering process.
You have the right to return your order within 7 days of receipt of the goods (this excludes medicine orders such as prescription items and flea and worming products). For details of how to exercise this right please see the Returns and Refunds page.

Other legal notices
There may be legal notices on other areas of this website which relate to your use of this website, all of which will, together with these terms & conditions govern your use of this website. These terms and conditions, any document expressly referred to in them and any other legal notices on this website constitute the whole agreement between us and supersede all previous discussions, correspondence, negotiations, previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between us relating to the subject matter of any order. We each acknowledge that, in entering into an order, neither of us relies on any representation or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in these terms and conditions or the documents referred to in them. Each of us agrees that our only liability in respect of those representations and warranties that are set out in this agreement (whether made innocently or negligently) will be for breach of contract. Nothing in this clause limits or excludes any liability for fraud.
Events outside Petmeds ™ control
Petmeds™ will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under an order that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”). A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following: (a) strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action; (b) civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war; (c) fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster; (d) impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport; (e) impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; and (f) the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government. Petmeds™ performance under an order is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and Petmeds™ will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. Petmeds™ will use its reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under an order may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
If Petmeds™ fails at any time to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under an order or any of these terms and conditions, or if Petmeds™ fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which Petmeds™ is entitled under these terms and conditions, this will not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and will not relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by Petmeds™ of any default will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver by Petmeds™ of any of these terms and conditions will be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.
