Credits and Return of Products
Unless otherwise agreed by Provet in its absolute discretion, all Products are sold on the basis of “no return for credit” unless:
- Subject to clause 2 of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Products are received in a damaged state; or
- Subject to the requirements of clause 4 of the Terms and Conditions of Sale:
- the Products are supplied in the incorrect quantity;
- incorrect Products are supplied to You;
- or the Products are faulty.
Claims for refunds must be made within fourteen (14) days of receipt or collection of the Products by You by notifying The Lake Veterinary Hospitals, or by emailing the support address on your order invoice. A photograph of the faulty Products and the delivery slip from which the Products were supplied must be provided to Provet, failing which any such claims are deemed to be waived. In the event that Provet agrees to the return of the Products for credit, You will be notified of the appropriate procedure to be complied with to return the Products.
Products that have passed their expiry date since purchase will only be accepted for credit where the manufacturer of that particular product gives credit for expired stock.
If any items in Your order cannot be delivered due to extended supply issues or discontinued Products, You will be notified via email and will receive a refund for the value of the undelivered Products.
All Products come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
