Order Confirmaton Notice
Please ensure that your order is placed and paid for by 1.00 pm on the day prior to the delivery date. Orders for Mondays should be placed and paid for by 2.00 pm on the preceding Friday. Orders placed and paid for after the deadline will be scheduled for the next delivery date in your area. Please ensure that you are familiar with the current schedule.
Stock Status Notice
We do not keep stock of every item we sell. For this reason, we use STOCK STATUS notices on the products listed in our catalogue.
Stock status can be:
- In Stock
- Out of Stock
- 2-3 Days
Other than "Out of Stock", the remainder of these notices are used based on:
- whether the item is an INVENTORY item - in other words, do we keep stock and have stock on hand;
- whether the stock is in TRANSIT - which can either then indicate "2-3 Days" or "Pre-Order";
- whether the item is not STOCKED.
When our stocked items are out of stock, and the stock is in transit, the item is set to either "2-3 Days" if we know the transport is almost here (we have a delivery date), or "Pre-Order" (if we have not received delivery date confirmation yet). If the stock is in transit, and we want to allow pet parents to order ahead of schedule, then the item is set to "Pre-Order".
Custom Herbal Blends, Remedies and custom Accessories will always be set to "Pre-Order". This indicate that there is a lead-time associated obtaining the item for you.

Order Status and Results
During the online order process and corresponding payment process, the following order status apply:
- Initial Order Status: Pending. This means the transaction / order was committed in our portal, but the payment confirmation is still due. If you select manual EFT then this status will apply until we receive the Proof of Payment (POP) from you.
- Successful Order Status: Processing. This means that payment authorisation has been received in our portal, and you should have received a notice from PayGate as confirmation. We will then approve your transaction, verify stock availability, and schedule your delivery.
- Failed Order Status: Cancelled Reversal. If the payment authorisation fails for whatever reason, then we roll the order back. This is to ensure that we do not created duplicate orders. So, if for instance, you entered the incorrect credit card or account details (EFT) when processing the payment, and the transaction fail, then the cart transaction will be reversed as well.
- Cancelled Order Status: Cancelled Reversal. If you abort the payment process, then the transaction will automatically roll back.

When you attempt to provide the wrong password for 3 times in a row, our system thinks that someone is trying to hack it. It will automatically then disable your account. This is a preventative action, so please do not take exception.
At the moment, we have configured the system to by default, after 1 HOUR has passed, UNLOCK your account again.
