Shipping Locations | Multiple Item Orders
Please note: Lambert Vet Supply ships items from three different locations. If your order contains multiple items, be aware that they may ship separately and at different times. You will be notified and receive tracking information when your items have been shipped.
Any item that weighs over 8 pounds is considered an oversized item. Orders containing oversized items will be assessed a $4 oversized fee per item. Orders containing oversized items must ship via ground service. Second day and overnight service is unavailable for oversized items.
Effective June 13, 2011 each order processed through LambertVetSupply.com will be subject to a $1 handling fee. This fee covers rising fuel costs and will be applied to the shopping cart upon checkout.
Prescriptions from our Pet Pharmacy
All prescription items are Non-Returnable and Non-Refundable. Prescription items can only be shipped within the 50 states. Please allow an additional business day for processing of prescription items. If other items are included in the same order as a prescription item, the prescription item will ship separately.
Vaccines and other Refrigerated Products
All refrigerated products are shipped on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We cannot ship vaccines to P.O. Boxes.
Overnight orders are shipped Monday-Thursday. Orders received after 11 a.m. CST on Thursday will be shipped the following Monday.
2nd Day orders can only be shipped Monday-Wednesday. Orders taken after 11 a.m. CST on Wednesday will be shipped on the following Monday.
Vaccines may be shipped on Friday for overnight delivery on Saturday, for an additional fee of $20. Please note that Saturday delivery is not available in all areas.
Vaccines are packed within a cooler, and with the necessary ice packs to ensure that your package arrives effective. There is a $4 cooler charge.
Vaccines are Non-Returnable unless shipped by Overnight or 2nd Day Service. The use of Overnight or 2 Day service is strongly encouraged for all temperature sensitive items. Orders shipped via Ground Service may take up to 10 days to deliver. Orders are owned by the purchaser upon shipment.
Vaccines are temperature sensitive to extensive heat or freezing. In order to maintain viability, if experiencing either weather extreme, we recommend using Overnight Service. Please use precaution if delivery is to an area with inclement weather conditions. Either contact customer service about a different delivery date or note on your order.
In most cases, the ice packs may have melted by the time your package arrives and therefore means the ice and cooler box have done their job. The vaccine may arrive slightly warm, and will not cause ineffectiveness of the vaccine. Vaccines are shipped in the same method from the manufacturers.
If temperatures are above 80 degrees, we recommend the purchase of additional ice for $1.00 per pack. Please call to add additional ice to your order.
Immediately upon receipt of your order, place vaccines in the refrigerator and avoid exposing them to direct sunlight or freezing conditions.
Drop Shipped Items from Vendor
For items marked as drop shipped, a customer service representative will contact you to finalize your order. Shipping costs for drop ship items vary by manufacturer and/or distributors and subject to change.
Orders that contain backordered items will be split shipped. In-stock items will be shipped and backordered items will ship as they become available. Vaccines on Manufacturer Back Order and items less than $10.00 will not be backordered. Please plan to include these items in your next order.
Special order items are non-refundable.
Products that are marked ORM-D (otherwise regulated materials for domestic transport only) can only be shipped via ground carrier within the contiguous United States. They cannot be shipped to a P.O. Box or via any expedited method that may involve air transport. If you have any questions, please call 800-344-6337.
