Orders normally ship in 1-3 business days. We stock thousands of top sellers in our warehouse. If the items you ordered are these top sellers, your order should ship by the next business day. The lower selling specialty products are ordered in from the manufacturers to ensure you receive only the freshest products. Although we generally have these items within 1 to 2 days, they can sometimes take up to 7 days for us to receive. We then promptly ship your order out when it is complete. We will notify you by email of any delays longer than 7 days.


UPS and Fed Ex 2 Day Air orders are shipped Monday through Wednesday only, and must have a physical address for shipping, not a PO Box address. Overnight Air Orders are shipped Monday through Thursday only. If your order is placed after noon any of these days, it will be shipped the first day possible that will ensure a safe, timely delivery of your perishable items.


We offer low, reasonable shipping rates on USPS First Class Mail, USPS Priority Mail, UPS and Fed Ex. Shipping options offered during checkout will depend upon the collective weight of the items ordered. You will have the option of choosing whichever shipping option you want from a drop down menu upon checking out. Please note that if you are not offered the USPS First Class Mail option, it is simply because your order is too heavy (over 15oz.) to ship that way. In that case, the next best, least expensive way you will be offered will be either Priority Mail, or Fed Ex or UPS Ground. You are also free to choose expedited UPS or Fed Ex air shipping if needed.

We regret that we can no longer ship to addresses outside the U.S. due to customs restrictions. If you have someone in the U.S. that we can ship to, we will gladly ship your order to them and they can in turn forward your order to you. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.


Perishable items on our website are those items that need to be kept cold during shipment, thus requiring they be sent in an insulated freezer bag with sufficient ice packs. Whenever these items are ordered, only the UPS or Fed Ex 2 Day Air or UPS or Fed Ex Standard Overnight options will be offered for shipping. These are guaranteed shipments - if UPS or Fed Ex air shipments do not arrive within the guaranteed respectable time frames, due solely through the fault of UPS or Fed Ex, we will gladly refund or reship the order. Otherwise, as long as the 2 Day Air orders arrive in 2 business days and the Standard Overnight orders arrive within 1 business day, there are no returns, refunds or credits issued for perishable items. Also, by Federal mandated laws, vaccines cannot be returned for any reason.

During the hot summer months (June through Mid-Sept), all perishable orders MUST be shipped UPS or FedEx Overnight.
