Case study: Gabrielle's experience

I’ve been ordering dog, cat and horse supplies from Chewy for several years now, and have never once had a bad experience. My shipments usually arrive within one to two days, and I’ve found their customer service to be excellent.

Once, after trying a new food for my dog, I was prompted to leave a review for the product. I explained that it simply didn’t end up working out for my dog, though there was nothing wrong with the product itself. Upon seeing my review, Chewy customer service reached out to me, stating that they would like to issue me a refund for the food. I was so impressed by the offer, as I hadn’t asked for a refund or even left a negative comment.

Several friends and family members of mine who use Chewy have lost a pet, and Chewy sent them flowers and a sympathy card. Because of their excellent customer service, I’ll be a longtime Chewy customer.

How can I contact customer support?

Chewy offers 24/7 customer support. Call 800-672-4399 or use the live chat feature on for immediate assistance. Or email
