By Mary
Drug great to have. Order issue took several tries to resolve.
October 26, 2020
I ordered 3 tubes of a drug for my horse. I received one tube with no explanation and was charged for 3. I tried calling to find out why and had a very long wait on phone. I finally got ahold of someone who said they had to get help with the issue. Eventually I found out tubes could be refilled one at a time. So I got a 2nd tube and took a refund for the last tube.

Merchant Response:Appologies about the confusion Mary. Glad you got what you needed. Take care.
  • Good pricing
  • Clear explanation of problem when I got an answer.
  • Slow to get an explanation about issue and fix issue.
