ABOUT OUR ONLINE SHOP
Our online shop is a facility provided by The Code Company (Pty.) Ltd. through the VetWeb ™ system which enables us to order veterinary and animal related products from our suppliers once you have purchased it on our online shop, and have it delivered to our place of business for you to collect or alternatively deliver it to the address specified by you during the purchasing process. The VetWeb ™ system manages the entire process from the manufacturer who can upload product information to the incorporation of other role players in the veterinary retail channel, right down to the delivery of products to individuals within South Africa. If we don’t have an item on our site, it may be because our suppliers are out of stock and you are welcome to notify us as such and we will try our best to procure such items for you.

Except where noted otherwise, the List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in our physical facility or for other providers of the same product in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the List Price may represent "open-stock" prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer's estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before delivery or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Please note that this policy applies only to products sold and delivered through our online shop. Your purchases are charged at the time you place your order.
Due to the popularity of some products or services, our suppliers may not always have products or service ordered by you in stock. We will accept orders for out of stock products or services to ensure that you will be the first to receive the item once it becomes available. If the products and services ordered by you are not available or only a portion is available, you may cancel the order, or re-order the quantity that is available, or place a backorder. Once the products or services become available, it will be delivered to you.
We reserve the right to cancel an order at any time.
