3. Website information & availability

3.1 Whilst we take every care to ensure that the information on the Website is accurate and complete, some of it may be supplied to us by third parties and we are unable to check its accuracy or completeness. You are advised to verify the accuracy of any information before relying on it. Further, due to the inherent nature of the Internet, errors, interruptions and delays may occur in the service at any time. Accordingly, subject to condition 13 below, the Website is provided "AS IS" with warranties excluded to the fullest extent permissible by law. Subject to condition 13 below, we do not accept any liability arising from any inaccuracy or omission in any and/or all of the information provided on the Website or interruption in availability.

3.3 Your access to the Website may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to restore the service as soon as we reasonably can.

3.4 Your attention is drawn to the following information in particular:

3.4.1 The Product ingredients listed on this site are provided by the manufacturer and are correct as at 14/11/07. While we do our very best to ensure that this information is kept up to date, there may be occasions where a manufacturer has changed their recipe and this has not yet been reflected in the information on our product pages. Please always refer to the product packaging upon receipt of your order for the fullest and most up to date copy of the product's ingredients.

3.4.2 The Typical Analyses listed on this site are provided by the products' manufacturers and are correct as at 14/11/07. While we do our best to ensure that this information is kept up to date, there may be occasions where a manufacturer has changed their formulation and this has not yet been reflected in the information on our product pages. Please always refer to the product packaging upon receipt of your order for the fullest and most up to date copy of the product's Typical Analysis.

3.4.3 The Feeding Guides listed on this site are provided by the product's manufacturers and are correct as at 14/11/07. While we do our best to ensure that this information is kept up to date, there may be occasions where a manufacturer has changed their Feeding Guide and this has not yet been reflected in the information on our product pages. Due to the complexity of some feeding guides, the information displayed on this site may be a simplified version and therefore all Feeding Guides are provided for the purposes of comparing products only. Please always refer to the product packaging upon receipt of your order for the fullest and most up to date copy of the product's Feeding Guide and use only this when feeding your pet.

3.4.4 Suitable Breeds. We understand that when shopping online, it may be difficult to visualise the actual size of an item, even where approximate product dimensions have been provided. We have therefore provided where possible, a list of potentially suitable breeds for many of our products. Due to the sheer number of breeds of Dog in the UK, this list is a guide only and is by no means meant to be definitive. This guide is based on a breed's generic size and attributes. Each pet is an individual and therefore while a product may generally be suitable for a certain breed type, it may not be suitable for certain individual pets. Therefore, upon receipt of your order, please ensure that you are confident that the product(s) you have purchased will in fact be suitable for your pets unique individual requirements.
