Service Interuption

We're sorry some customers had problems ordering

Unfortunately on Thursday April 28,  between 7:03 AM  and 9:11 PM (PST) our system encountered problems processing payments from some customers attempting to order online or through our call center.

This glitch effected a small number of orders placed during that time. Affected customers were advised that their payment could not be processed and their credit cards were not charged. 

The issue was caused by a problem with an authorization password in the gateway connecting our system and that of our credit card payment processor. No issues of security were involved, and this problem has now been rectified.

If you were one of the effected customers, we do sincerely apologize and ask that you either place your order again online, or contact our call center on 1-888-691-2268 who can process your payment.

Take Action and Say Goodbye to Fleas This Spring

As the weather starts to warm up, fleas build up in numbers. These wingless bloodsucking insects cause itching, scratching, allergies, anemia and transmit tapeworms in our pets. Effective flea control involves treating the fleas on the pet as well as in the environment and should commence now if you don’t already have a flea plan in place.

Preventative action all year round is of course the best way to stop any fleas building up to uncontrollable levels. For all the information you need to know for beating fleas this spring check out the latest newsletter article!

Five Fast Flea Facts

With flea season fast approaching it's a good idea for you to find out as much as you can about these little creatures before they have a chance to cause any real trouble for you and your pets. Here are some interesting flea facts to get you started:

Flea Fact 1

Fleas are very small creatures weighing only one-millionth of a pound. Despite being only 1/8 inch, they are capable of pulling 160,000 times their own body weight. Put into proportion, this would be equivalent to a human pulling about 24 million pounds.

Flea Fact 2
Fleas are also very strong jumpers. They are able to jump up to 12 inches into the air, which is 150 times their own height. This is equivalent to a human jumping 1,000 feet.

Flea Fact 3
Pet owners spend an estimated $1.6 billion (US) every year treating fleas with the assistance of pet groomers. Another $4 billion (US) is spent on flea treatments bought over the counter and a whopping $348 billion (US) is spent on professional flea removal services.

Flea Fact 4

Fleas can be difficult to get rid of once they have taken over a pet or a home. This is mostly due to the fact that their life cycle has not been stopped. To truly get rid of fleas, you need to get rid of the adult fleas, the eggs, and the larvae.

Flea Fact 5

Fleas like the weather to be warm and humid which is why Spring is seen as the start of the flea season. The best way to prevent any flea infestations is to to treat your pet all year round with one of the recommended flea products.
