We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable Taxes. The shipment of a Subscription to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes, unless you cancel your Subscription in accordance with the cancellation policies set forth herein. Note that if you request a recipe change, or make a recipe change, your price will likely change and you will not receive a notice.
All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products (including, but not limited to, specific meal ingredients or entire meals) without prior notice. We strive to provide you with high-quality Products, and given the perishable nature of certain Products and market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at [email protected]
We will be making deliveries according to the schedule agreed upon with the Petchef team member you spoke to upon creating your account and meal plan. For every delivery, you will receive an email and SMS 1 week and 1 day prior to Order delivery, stating the date and two-hour time slot for delivery. If there is a discrepancy between the agreed date and time of Order delivery, and the date and time on the notifications you receive, and you happen to not be at home to receive the Order, we will waive the re-delivery fee, and deliver to you within the following 48 hours of nondelivery.
If you have not made payment by the date of Order delivery, regardless of payment method, we reserve the right to withhold handover of your Order until the payment has been made.
We send Orders for delivery through in-house and third-party carriers, and reserve the right to take a photograph of the delivery for proof and future reference of Order being fulfilled. You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive for any damage or other issues upon delivery, including that the Product is at a refrigerated temperature. If completely unfrozen, the food had been freshly cooked the same day. If any issues with the products received, you are to report such issues within 48 hours of receiving order for the Petchef team to find an adequate solution where applicable. To maintain the quality and integrity of the Products, you should immediately freeze, and it is recommended to place 1 to 2 days of food in the fridge to thaw prior to serving your pet. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper handling, preparation, storage, use and consumption of the Products following delivery.
If you are not at home when your delivery arrives, we will follow the special instructions provided for your account upon registering for our Product, and reserve the right to charge a re-delivery fee of a minimum of RM15 to send to an alternate location where applicable. We may use insulated bags for deliveries where you agree to have delivery left unattended, which carry an additional cost of RM10 per bag, granted your order is 4 kg or below, and delivery time is still during daylight time. If it is nighttime, we can leave the bag unattended sans insulated bag and charge, situation permitting. This is to assure you receive your order in good condition. In any case we will proceed only with your verbal or written consent, and we will not be liable for the safety or condition of order after we leave the order unattended, or as requested. We encourage you to provide specific delivery instructions, but we cannot guarantee that the third party carriers will follow them.
Given we do live in tropical climates, you should plan in advance for proper storage. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver, such a person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL FEE IF OUR CARRIER CANNOT DELIVER A PACKAGE BECAUSE YOU PROVIDED IMPROPER INSTRUCTIONS OR THE CARRIER IS UNABLE TO LEAVE THE PACKAGE.
While we strive to provide the best customer experience possible, we are not liable for the actions or inactions of third party carriers. Please contact us as soon as possible if you experience an issue with the carrier.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY US SAME DAY IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR PACKAGE DURING YOUR SCHEDULED DELIVERY WINDOW. YOU CAN REACH OUT TO OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER AT +6011 2843 6979.
In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your Order, our carrier will attempt to deliver your Order as soon as reasonably possible. In the event that timely delivery is not feasible, we may retry, cancel your delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit, or resend a new Order at a later date. We will do our best to work with your availability
In the case of public holidays, we reserve the right to move your delivery to an alternate date depending on the availability of both yourself and the carriers. You will receive a notification of upcoming deliveries 1 week and 1 day prior via email and SMS. If there is availability, we will deliver anyways on the holiday itself. You can always change your delivery date and time at this link.
We may change our delivery zones at any time and without notice. To determine whether we deliver to a specified address please share an address with our Petchef team or email us at [email protected].

Just contact us at [email protected] within 10 days after the completion of the program, or within 4 weeks and 10 days from first delivery.
4.10. Service Charges
At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to charge service fees, including, but not limited to, the following circumstances:
(a) Late changes. If you request a change to your order after our change cut-off (3 working days before delivery, as mentioned above) and we are able to accommodate your request; (for example if your delivery is Wednesday, you will need to notify us latest by the Friday prior, 11:59PM. If you submit a change that we can service after Friday 11:59PM, changes will incur a charge up to our discretion based on the kind of change request, starting at RM15.) If late changes are requested within 24 hours of the upcoming delivery, the late change fee will start at RM50.
(b) If you request an order sent outside of our normal service area
(c) If you request a non-standard variation of our Product (also see: Customisation)
4.11. Food Amounts
If you are a Subscription customer, based on information you provide we send an amount of meal plan Product likely to meet the needs of your pet. However, every pet is unique and it is your responsibility to monitor their reaction to the Product and request any necessary adjustments. Our recommended portion sizes are based on you feeding only our Product, and we obviously cannot account for other food or treats that you feed without specific and accurate information from you. We are not liable for any issues arising with the Product if you mix with other foods or toppers that are not Petchef products. We are also not liable for the quality of the Product and reaction of the pet to the food if you decide to warm up prior to serving.
4.12. Health Conditions & Product Suitability
It is your responsibility to verify whether our Products are suitable for your pets and to inform us if your pet has any health issues, including allergies. We are not veterinarians and DO NOT offer veterinary advice. We make NO REPRESENTATIONS about the suitability of our Product for your specific pet, and disclaim all liability associated with any adverse reactions. If you are concerned about whether our Products are suitable for your pet, please consult with your veterinarian.
Please also take note that our Product has an expiry of 3 months, just like human-comestibles kept in the freezer the whole time. If Product is kept in the fridge, no longer than 4 days. We are not liable should you feed your pet the food outside the Product’s valid consumption times.
4.13. Returns and Credits
We do not accept returns of perishable Products or opened items unless the Product condition requires further investigation by our team. Refunds may be made at our discretion in the event of any problems with the Products.
For any issues or complaints regarding the food quality, please share as many details as possible, including photo evidence, a description of date and time, condition, pet’s reaction, number, size and recipe of packets affected. Without sufficient evidence, a credit or other solution will not be granted. With sufficient evidence, you are entitled for a free replacement delivery of the portion of the Order affected.
Our processes that go behind creating our Products are a combination of machine and hand. If the pieces happen to be of irregular size, please take a picture and send to us at the Petchef Customer Service phone number or at our support email [email protected] to investigate and find a solution. Our sizing is standard for all packet sizes, if unhappy with the sizing we suggest:
(a) blending / cutting at home to avoid extra charges
(b) paying a customisation fee to assure the sizing / texture you want.
Please take note that if you are indeed applicable for a credit or refund (if applicable) of any kind, it can take between 5 to 10 working days for the money to reach your account.
Customisations constitute as an inherent change to all or any of the Meal Plan Recipes (or ‘Products’) upon your request, given your pet’s preferences of medical needs. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to charge additional fees, including, but not limited to, the following circumstances:
(a) removing any ingredient, including broth, and excepting herbs and oils. All replaced ingredients will be by default replaced with the main protein source of the recipe, which will incur a 30% customisation fee on top of the regular price;
(b) adding any toppers or vitamins (for example, eggshell powder, green-lipped mussel extract, etc.) which would incur a price subject to the type of topper requested;
(c) blending or cutting ingredients into smaller pieces, which would incur a 30% customisation fee.
