If you ordered Frozen items and they arrive thawed out:

When purchasing frozen products from The K9 Shop, you are releasing The K9 Shop from any guarantee that the product will be fully frozen upon delivery. The K9 Shop cannot control the shipping carriers, and we do our best to ensure we pack all frozen products with sufficient amount of coolant for transit time. If your order is received thawed, or partially thawed, you can refreeze the product, as there is nothing wrong with refreezing and thawing pet food.
