LIMITATIONS REGARDING INFORMATION, ARTICLES & ADVICE
Dorchester Pet Care & Supply offers information, articles and advice to Pet Parents through this Site for educational purposes only. Any information offered through this Site is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure your pet and is not a substitute for veterinary care provided by a licensed veterinarian.

PRODUCT DISPLAY & COLOURS
This Site attempts to display product images as accurately as possible. However, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see matches the product colour. Note that the display of colour may depend, in part, upon the monitor you are using.
ERRORS ON SITE
Prices and availability of products and services are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected where discovered and Dorchester Pet Care & Supply reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, including after an order has been submitted, whether or not the order has been confirmed and/or your credit/debit card has been charged. If your credit/debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Dorchester Pet Care & Supply will issue a credit to your credit/debit card account in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will control when this amount is credited to your account. (If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with Dorchester Pet Care & Supply's Return Policy.)
Online prices, offers and selection may vary between our retail store and Site, and are subject to change. We reserve the right to limit sales, including the right to refuse sales, to resellers.
Because Dorchester Pet Care & Supply does in Canada and collects and remits sales tax as required by law, this Site also collects and remits sales tax as appropriate.
PAYING FOR YOUR ORDER
You may pay for your order with a debit card or major credit card, by using PayPal®, Google Checkout, or a check. We accept Visa®, MasterCard®, and debit cards with a MasterCard or Visa logo.
Generally, credit/debit cards are not charged by Dorchester Pet Care & Supply until we either ship the order to you or confirm availability (at which time you will be charged only for the goods we have actually shipped along with any appropriate taxes or shipping charges). However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit/debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit.
When you pay by check, you authorize Dorchester Pet Care & Supply or its check processing designee(s) to use information on your check to make a one-time electronic debit from your account at the financial institution indicated on your check. This electronic debit will be for the amount of your check; no additional amount will be added to this amount. If we cannot collect your electronic payment, we will issue a draft against your account. If you do not have sufficient funds in your account, a fee of $25 will be debited electronically from your account. Please contact our Customer Care Department to learn about other payment options if you prefer not to have your check used this way.
Orders paid for using PayPal will be debited at the time orders are placed. When using PayPal as your payment method, payment processing and how your credit/debit card or checking account is charged is at the sole discretion of PayPal. Learn more about PayPal.
Dorchester Pet Care & Supply gift cards cannot be used at this time. Please click here for more info.

VALIDATING YOUR ORDER
After you place an order using our shopping cart, we will check the information you give us for validity, by verifying your method of payment and/or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us and/or limit quantities on any order, without giving a reason. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you have provided with the order. Generally, your credit/debit card will not be charged if we reject an order; however, we will process a refund if a charge has been made against your card.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation from us does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. Dorchester Pet Care & Supply reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.
