Delivery Information

All orders placed on Vetsend before 2pm will be collected from our warehouse the same day. Deliveries within the UK are made by Hermes. Once your parcel has been dispatched from our warehouse, you will receive an email that includes a tracking link, allowing you to track your order as it is on its way to you. After dispatch, your parcel will be delivered to the specified address within 2-4 working days (Monday through Saturday).

Delivery Options

Delivery to Address

Deliveries within the UK are made by Hermes to the provided delivery address within 2-4 working days, subject to availability. Hermes delivers parcels from 9am to 5pm on Monday to Saturday. You will receive an email from Hermes with the expected time and date of delivery.

If you were not at home during the first delivery attempt, Hermes will make 2 more delivery attempts at another time. They will leave a card in the mailbox with the information of the next scheduled delivery moment. If you are not able to be at home during the next delivery attempt, you may also have the parcel delivered to a alternate address.

Please note: It is not possible to have your parcel delivered to a PO Box.

Change Delivery

Hermes offers you the possibility to change your delivery address after a first, unsuccessful delivery attempt.

Tracking a Delivery

After checkout, you will receive an email with all of the necessary details and a summary of your order. Once your parcel has been dispatched, you will receive a second email with a Hermes tracking link, which will allow you to track your order from the moment it leaves our warehouse until it reaches your front door. Finally, Hermes will send you an email or text message on the day of delivery with an indication of the time at which your parcel will be delivered.

What happens if the tracking link shows the parcel has been delivered but I cannot find it?

First of all, make sure the driver did not leave a note stating that your parcel has been delivered elsewhere (such as at your neighbours). If this is not the case, please contact our customer service team.

Delivery Times

Orders placed on working days before 8pm and paid for using PayPal, credit or debit card will be dispatched the same day, subject to availability. Your parcel will be delivered within 2-4 working days at the provided address. If (part of) your order is not in stock, your order will generally be dispatched within two working days. We aim to dispatch all orders within the estimated dispatch time stated on each individual product page, such as "Orders before 8pm are dispatched in one working day" or "Estimated dispatch in 5 working days".

Normally, we do not split up items in one order but dispatch it once it is complete. If one or more items have an extraordinarily long delivery time, we will split the order into two shipments. If this is the case we will inform you about the order being dispatched in separate shipments.
