Returns and Refunds
This Policy provides you with benefits required to have by law, including under the Australian Consumer Law (see below), because your satisfaction is very important to us.
If you change your mind about a product you have purchased from us, you can return that product to us within 30 days of purchase and we will happily refund the original purchase price of that product provided the product and packaging is in its original condition and is re-saleable.
Delivery Refund Policy:
If you bought the product online, and the product is defective or damaged in transit, return the product within 30 days and (provided we agree that the product is damaged or defective as outlined below) we will refund your original delivery charge or cover the costs of delivering any replacement product to you.
We will not however refund delivery charges if the item is returned simply because it is unwanted.
If you receive a faulty product from us (for online purchases a product is defective or damaged in transit on delivery to you) return it to us within 30 days of purchase and we will inspect the product and if we agree that the product is faulty and unlikely to have occurred through abnormal use, we will, with your agreement, replace the product with an identical product or offer a replacement.
If we are unable to provide you with an identical product, we will, with your agreement, refund the purchase price (and delivery price, if any).
If however, you return the product more than 30 days after purchase or you do not agree to the replacement or refund referred to immediately above, we will need to make a more thorough assessment of the nature of the fault before we can determine how to help you, be it replacement, repair or refund.
In many situations, this will be a simple assessment by our store staff or for online purchases the customer service team.
For example: if the product was wrongly described or incorrectly labelled, or if the fault is relatively simple and safe to determine, we can usually assess it immediately upon receipt.
Sometimes it may be dangerous or may not be possible to assess the product immediately due to the nature of the product (for example, if it is an electrical item). In these circumstances, we may send the product to the manufacturer or their repair agent to determine the issue and its resolution.
Whilst we always do our best to provide you with a timely resolution, depending on the product please be aware it may take six weeks or more to complete the process due to the number of parties involved. When we send your product to the manufacturer or their agent, we will ask them to assess the product and provide their assessment within a reasonable timeframe.
An alternative option is for you to liaise with the manufacturer directly, which may be more convenient and efficient for you. Our customer service team is happy to provide you with the relevant manufacturer’s contact details to assist you.
When assessing faulty and damaged items APD looks at the following:
If there is a minor fault – where the fault is minor and the product can be easily repaired it will be fixed and returned to the customer within a reasonable timeframe. APD and/or the manufacturer can decide instead to replace or refund the purchase price.
A major fault – if the assessment of the product concludes that the item is seriously faulty the customer may choose whether they would prefer a refund, replacement, or repair.
If the product has been damaged through abnormal use – neither APD or the Manufacturer accept responsibility for damages incurred through incorrect use of the product. If repair were possible it would be at the customers direction and cost.
If a pet does not like a food item (as outlined in APD return policy) the item will be refunded provided the item is in it’s original condition, and is resealable and returned within 30 days of purchase. This only applies to the Super Premium dog and cat food brands, all others cannot be returned if opened.
They do stress it is important when switching to a Premium food product you introduce it gradually into your pets diet.
However, if you find that your pet does not take to the new Super Premium dog or cat food, then return the bag of pet food within 30 days of purchase and we will refund your purchase. It does not matter how much food is left in the bag.
This is followed by a link to their list of Super Premium food brands.
