Here at ALTAVETERINARY.COM, we understand how important return options are to the consumer. Our return policy is very simple. You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We’ll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item). We will not pay the return shipping costs if you wish to return your product because you no longer need it.

Special orders and custom merchandise may not be returnable or may be subject to a restocking fee of 20%.

Please inspect your products upon arrival. Any damage to products also due to shipping must be immediately reported, if you fail to inform us of any damage item upon arrival within 48 hours, a full refund will not be given.

You should expect to receive your refund within four (4) weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases, you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.

Items not returned within 30 days are subject to a 20% restocking fee. On exchanges, an additional shipping fee will be incurred. All returned items should still have the appropriate tags and be in new condition, meaning that items should not have marks of use or dirt, if the product being returned does not meet these conditions, we will be unable to process the return.

A full refund, minus shipping and handling will follow after the return of the items in resalable condition. Replacements will be forwarded strictly after the products have been returned and have been inspected by us. If the replacement item is not in stock, it will be ordered in from our supplier. Wait times may apply. Please return the items via registered, trackable and insured post only.
