Welcome to Banfield Pet Hospital®! These are the specific terms and conditions regarding your use of Banfield’s websites and any online or mobile application (each an “App”) that run on any smart phones, tablets or other devices, that link to these terms, including without limitation Banfield.com and the Banfield Pet Hospital Mobile Application (collectively, the “Sites”). Through the Sites, we, Medical Management International, Inc., dba Banfield Pet Hospital® ("Banfield"), offer information and communications services and related products that we hope you will find helpful, entertaining, and informative. There are a few rules of the (cyber) road that our visitors must follow when using our Sites, so we ask all our visitors to read these General Terms and Conditions (“Agreement”) carefully.
Please be sure to read this Agreement carefully, especially the disclaimers and limitations of our liability, since the use of the Sites constitutes your acceptance of, and agreement with, the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement.
We do not intend to make changes to this Agreement very often but reserve the right to do so. It is your responsibility to check when you visit our Sites to ensure that you have read and agree with our most current terms and conditions. Any change in this Agreement will be effective as of the date posted unless otherwise noted. We generally do not make any changes to this Agreement that have a retroactive effect unless legally required to do so. Your continued use of the Sites after that time will constitute your irrevocable acceptance of any new or amended terms. The date this Agreement was last modified is set forth at the beginning of this Agreement.

You agree to provide us with accurate, complete and updated Account information. Failure to do so will constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your Account.
You agree to keep your password, if any, confidential and use only your Account login and password when logging in. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account (including but not limited to any purchases, posting reviews or other use of the Sites), and even if such activities or uses were not committed by you.

Consent to use data
Purchases of products and services
Order and acceptance
When a product or service is offered for sale as part of our Sites, Banfield may accept your offer to purchase such product or services subject to this Agreement (each a “Purchase”). Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation from Banfield does not signify Banfield’s acceptance of you order, nor does it constitute confirmation of Banfield’s offer to sell. Banfield reserves the right to accept or reject your order for any reason at any time after receipt of your order without providing a reason to you.
If Banfield rejects your order, Banfield will attempt to notify you using the email address provided with your order but Banfield disclaims any responsibility or liability in the event you do not receive any such attempted email notification. Generally, your credit/debit card or bank account will not be charged if Banfield rejects an order; however, Banfield will process a refund if a charge has been made against your credit/debit card or bank account for a rejected order.
If you wish to make an order for a product or a service, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, or other payment related information, including your shipping address. You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply is true, correct and complete. You hereby authorize Banfield to bill your credit card in accordance with the Purchase. You shall be responsible for all taxes and duties associated with the Purchase as applicable.
By providing a credit card, you are expressly agreeing that Banfield is authorized to keep such credit card on file and charge you the fees, charges, or other amounts described herein. If you want to use a different credit card than the one you signed up to use during registration or your Purchase, or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your credit card information by logging in to your account and viewing your account details. If your credit card expires and you do not edit your credit card information or cancel your account, you understand that you will not be able to make Purchases on the Sites.
In addition to all other remedies available under this Agreement or at law (which Banfield does not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), Banfield shall be entitled to suspend the delivery of products or services if you fail to pay any amounts when due hereunder and such failure continues for thirty (30) days following written notice thereof. You shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with Banfield, whether relating to Banfield’s breach, bankruptcy or otherwise.
Product description and pricing
Banfield cannot promise that any particular products or services or pricing will be available at any time. Until you have confirmed an order, pricing, offers, selection and availability of any products or services offered may change without notice. Although Banfield tries to accurately describe and display products and services, Banfield cannot and does not promise that product and service descriptions or depictions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.
You shall not sell, fulfill, provide or ship any products in any manner whatsoever. Banfield may immediately limit, stop or prohibit sales to you if you fail to comply with the obligations of this Section.
Banfield may, at its sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities Purchased. Restrictions may include orders placed by the same account, orders that use the same credit/debit card or bank account or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. If Banfield makes a change to your order, Banfield will attempt to notify you by the email and/or billing address provided with your order but Banfield disclaims any responsibility or liability in the event you do not receive any such attempted notification. Banfield reserves the right to limit, stop or prohibit sales to you for any reason.
Shipping and handling
All changes and cancellations must be made prior to shipment. Once an item has shipped, we will be unable to change or cancel the order. Prescription medications are fulfilled by a third-party licensed pharmacy, Vetsource. Due to state and federal regulations, prescription medications can only be shipped to a street address (home, work, etc.) They cannot be shipped to a P.O. Box. Most prescription products can be delivered without a signature. There are exceptions, however. Certain products (e.g., controlled substances and medications needing refrigeration) must be tracked and signed for.
Neither Banfield nor our suppliers shall be liable for any delays, loss or damage in transit for any shipment. Banfield and/or suppliers may, in their sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of Purchases to you. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and you shall pay for the units shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfillment of your order. Title and risk of loss passes to you upon delivery of the products at your location set forth in the Purchase.
Sales and taxes
Banfield is required to comply with the sales and use tax laws in the states in which it operates. In jurisdictions that impose sales or use tax, a purchase is subject to tax unless specifically exempt by law. Certain purchases are subject to tax even if Banfield is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular jurisdiction. Your Purchase is NOT exempt from tax merely because Banfield does not collect the tax from you at the time of Purchase. Furthermore, your Purchase is NOT exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by phone, by catalog, or by other remote means. You shall be solely responsible for any taxes not collected by Banfield and certain jurisdictions may require you (i) to file a sales/use tax return annually reporting taxable purchases that were not taxed and (ii) to pay such tax. For more information, you should contact the applicable taxing authority. If Banfield collects sales or use tax in connection with a Purchase, the amount of the tax will either be shown prior to completion of the purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that Purchase. All sales and use tax amounts collected by Banfield are remitted to the appropriate taxing authorities in a timely and legally defined manner.
Missing or damaged products, returns and exchanges
To submit a request for refund for a missing or damaged product or to return or exchange a product, login to your account and go to My Orders -> click on Past Orders -> select item for refund (status must be Completed) -> select drop down reason from refund request box.
Missing or damaged products.
Refunds for products damaged in shipment, shipping errors or short shipment will only be granted if the request is made within five (5) business days of product receipt. Banfield will provide specific instructions on the disposition of the product. At Banfield’s sole discretion, products will be credited at the original purchase price or replaced at no additional charge.
Returns and exchanges
Prescription (Rx) products Banfield Shop cannot accept returns for refund or exchange on ANY prescription products. State and Federal regulations prohibit reselling prescription returns, even if unopened. However, if the product you received is incorrect or damaged please contact us at 888-626-3992 within five (5) days of receipt for assistance.
Prescription orders are subject to approval by your veterinarian. Your prescription order request will automatically be forwarded to your veterinarian for approval. You will receive an email or phone notification as soon as your request is approved. If for some reason your veterinarian does not approve the request, you will receive a notification with further instructions.
Due to state and federal regulations, prescription medications can only be shipped to a street address (home, work, etc.) They cannot be shipped to a P.O. Box. Most prescription products can be delivered without a signature. There are exceptions, however. Certain products (e.g., controlled substances and medications needing refrigeration) must be tracked and signed for.
Optimum Wellness Plan® discounts and other incentives for online purchases
Optimum Wellness Plan members will see their discount automatically applied to product purchases (excluding diets) when logged into their Account. Discount will be applied to total eligible product purchase price excluding tax and shipping.
When you sign up for Banfield’s AutoShip home delivery service you are signing up for continuous shipments of your selected products and may choose how often you would like your product(s) delivered to you. You may change your delivery schedule at any time (including on a one-time basis), as well as your shipping address, payment method, and products included in the program. By subscribing to AutoShip, the following additional terms apply:
Notifications; order creation; order changes or cancellation
When you place your initial order for a product and enroll in AutoShip, you will receive a notice that your subscription has been created and your first order will be processed. Your first order will be processed immediately, and your selected payment method will be charged at the time the order is placed. Your AutoShip subscription will thereafter automatically create a new order according to your chosen delivery schedule, until you cancel. Orders can be cancelled up to three (3) days prior to your next scheduled ship date.
Credit card authorizations and charges
When you sign up for AutoShip, you will be required to expressly agree to permit us to charge your chosen payment method on a recurring basis, as well as the amount of the charge, which amount shall be set as described below. Banfield will submit periodic charges (e.g. monthly) to your chosen payment method without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice that you wish to cancel or to change your payment method. Approximately 24 hours prior to your designated ship date, your order will be authorized, and a payment authorization hold will be placed on your chosen payment method. Once your order is processed, your payment method will be charged for the authorized amount. For clarification purposes only, a payment authorization hold is not an actual charge, i.e, if an authorization hold is placed for $49 on January 1 and your payment method is charged $49 on January 2 when your order is shipped, you will only see one actual charge on your payment method on January 2 for $49. An authorization hold may impact the amount of remaining credit available to you under your chosen payment method. You will not be charged until your order ships.
Pricing; payment; renewal; cancellation
The total price charged to your credit card for all AutoShip items will be based on the price of the product or prescription on the day the order is processed, which has the potential to be higher than the price on the date you enroll in AutoShip for the product or prescription. All AutoShip items are subject to shipping charges, and applicable sales taxes, as stated above.
The charge for each shipment will be billed to the payment method used to create your AutoShip subscription or as otherwise updated by you. If we are unable to complete your AutoShip order with the payment method you used to create your subscription, we will notify you and give you the opportunity to add another payment method in your account and to charge the payment method for your AutoShip order.
Except where required by law, AutoShip subscriptions for non-prescription products will continue indefinitely unless/until cancelled by you. AutoShip subscriptions for prescription items will continue through a prescription’s term, including refills, unless otherwise canceled by you. You can cancel at any time. A cancellation must be received three (3) days before your next AutoShip order is processed.
All products and prescriptions are subject to changes in packaging and pricing. If we discover that an item included in your AutoShip subscription has been discontinued or altered, we will cancel that item and contact you with additional information.
Need to cancel or change your AutoShip subscription or have questions?
You can cancel or change your AutoShip subscription by logging into your account -> click on My Orders -> click on AutoShip Orders -> select to product you would like to cancel -> submit cancellation reason or you can contact Banfield at 888-626-3992 or by email at [email protected]
