Orders placed on associatepethospital.clientvantage.ca will be shipped directly from the supplier to the address chosen at checkout. If you choose the “ship to clinic” option, all orders will be shipped to Associate Pet Hospital and can be picked up at the clinic during regular business hours, after being notified.
You will be notified via the email associated with your account, as soon as your order arrives in clinic, provided this is the option chosen at checkout.
Normally shipping to our clinic takes between 1-2 business days, depending on the time of day the order was placed. Orders shipped directly to home may take a bit longer.
Please note that shipments may be delayed at any time due to factors beyond our control during the shipping process, especially during the winter months. With the ship to home option, we have no control over shipping, or shipping times.
- Returning Product: All returns require authorization by the Inventory Manager, or appointed staff member. Product being returned must be brought to the clinic in re-sellable condition (undamaged, unopened, clean, unmarked, etc.) within 30 days after purchase. All products being returned will be subject to a 20% restocking fee upon return of item. This will cover all fees incurred from the supplier including shipping of the product back to the supplier. There are items listed on the website marked as (nr) behind the product name, this means these items are non-returnable. Items marked as (so) are special order items which take an average of 2-6 weeks to arrive at the clinic. These items are ordered directly from the manufacturer and are non-returnable. Items marked as (d) represent the item being discontinued, these items will not be eligible for returns under any circumstances.
- Discontinued/Seasonal/Back Ordered Product: If an item purchased is unavailable from the supplier, or there are any issues with an order, a clinic representative will notify the customer by phone, of any changes as soon as possible. Back ordered items will have a (tu) beside the item name, meaning "Temporarily Unavailable". Items may be discontinued, or back ordered at any time. Please look for the code (d) for “Discontinued” behind the item name. Discontinued and Seasonal items will not be eligible for returns as per the supplier.
- Food Returns: Royal Canin, Hills, and Purina, have a first time palatability guarantee on all their prescription diets. If your pet is trying a new diet for the first time and does not like the food, it can be returned for a full refund, provided the food is still in its original packaging. Returns will not be accepted if the food has expired, or has passed the 30 day return mark after purchase. The restock fee will be waved on palatability returns (may be subject to change at any time on a case by case basis). Please note this applies to pets trying a new diet for the first time only. If your pet has experienced any gastro-intestinal changes on a current diet, or there is a manufacturer problem with the bag purchased, please call us. In most cases these issues will be eligible for a full refund as well. Please call the inventory manager for any issues relating to a bag purchased.
- Arrival Times: Orders placed Monday-Thursday prior to 2:00PM (CST) will be picked, packed, and shipped by the supplier the following morning, for next day delivery to the clinic. We do not receive orders over the weekends, or holidays. Orders placed Friday-Sunday will be processed on the next business day. Arrival times may vary at any time due to holidays, weather, mechanical issues, etc. Once the item has arrived, a confirmation email will be sent to the email associated with your account. Your order will then be ready for pick up. If damage to an item is sustained during shipment, staff will contact the supplier, and a new product will be shipped to the clinic promptly. This may result in a one day delay. All ship to home orders will be shipped directly from the supplier to the client (most likely via Purolator). As such, we cannot estimate arrival times for these orders.
