Actual delivery time to our customers varies and depends on processing time by the postal services and their geographical location.

Q: Will I get the exact product shown in photos on this website?
A: Images and photographs contained on this website are for illustrative purposes only, and the packaging may sometime differ from the photos shown. Products contained within the packaging will be exactly as ordered.
Q: Are your products Genuine?
A: Yes, all our products are genuine. We buy all the products directly from authorized wholesalers and hence control our supply chain. All our products are genuine and are official versions manufactured by the same manufacturer who makes the equivalent product for the USA market.
Products sold on Budgetpetcare.com are selected and approved by our in-house vet surgeons to ensure that they are safe and are from the brand name manufactures. Products sold by us are manufactured in the same factories using same ingredients as sold in the USA. To make pet care affordable we buy from outside the US and hence are able to pass maximum savings to our customers without compromising on quality and safety of the products. The manufactures sometimes to protect the patent call a product differently in some countries for e.g. Frontline Plus is Frontline Plus in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and most of the world, however, it’s called Frontline Combo in UK, France and remaining part of the Europe. Similarly K9 Advantix is called Advantix in Europe, whereas it remains K9 Advantix in rest of the world including the USA.
The manufacturer produces these products in few plants to supply to all their jurisdictions around the world. To meet the local requirement the packaging may sometime be slightly different though the product is exactly same for e.g. the content of each dosage may be in ounces or in ml or the weight may be in lbs or kgs however, the category and ingredient percentage remains exactly same. Our in house vet surgeons make sure that the product is exact equivalent of the US product.
Please note that K9 Advantix II and Advantage II are US procured products registered with EPA and shipped from our US Vet Practice, whereas all other products are shipped from our Vet Practice in the UK, which is also ISO 9001 (Quality Management) approved facility to give our customer confidence that we only ship quality products from registered vet practices supervised by US and UK vet surgeons.
Q: What is the difference between Frontline Plus and its other versions available around the world?
A: A comparison chart has been created at the following link, where the comparison of Frontline Plus and its various versions have been given for your reference.
For example all Frontline Plus made by Merial and sold throughout the world is manufactured in the one factory in France. All the vials are made exactly the same and then stamped with the appropriate regulatory information depending on which market it is being sold in.
Q: My credit card statement shows a "Cash Advance Fee" Or "International Transaction Fee" and my payment to you?
A: Due to the current financial crunch banks are trying to find ways to charge their customers. Few of the banks register your transaction as an international transaction and charge 1% or 2% of your order value. Please remember that it is neither our processor nor our bank which charges this fee. It is your credit card issuer bank which charges you and we do not have any control over such charges. This happens very occasionally.
If you are unsure whether your credit card company imposes such a fee please refer to your bank's contract fine print or contact them before you order with us.
If your credit card company does impose a fee, please try to place your order with another card. If you are unable to use another card, you can avoid this fee by selecting the "pay with Paypal" option during the checkout process. You don't need to be a Paypal member, and Paypal allows payments with lots of different cards with no foreign transaction fee. Since our prices are very competitive we feel that such charges will not affect your total savings. Please understand that we will not refund such fees imposed by your bank.
