I, the undersigned owner or agent of the owner, consent to the grooming of the pet identified above. I understand that Pikesville Animal Hospital will not be held responsible for clipper burn, minor nicks, skin irritation, or any conditions/problems discovered during grooming, nor will we be held responsible for stressful effects that grooming may have upon a geriatric pet.
Pikesville Animal Hospital shall not be held liable for any after-grooming effects of de-matting, carding, clipping procedures, or problems uncovered on a badly matted or otherwise neglected coat including, but not limited to: itchiness, skin redness, or self inflicted irritations/abrasions from excessive external rubbing.
I understand that time and costs associated with de-matting and carding are unpredictable and subject to the particular condition of my dog; consequently, I agree to pay whatever fees are incurred as a result of de-matting, carding, and/or flea treatment.
Sometimes pre-existing conditions arise unforseen to the groomer, such as skin allergies, shampoo allergies, moles, clipper sensitivity, matting and tangles, fleas, fear, behavioral issues, bone or joint sensitivity, heart conditions, seizures, etc.
We want your pet's experience here to be as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. It is important to understand that some pets respond to grooming differently, even with the best efforts. We will make every effort to make it a positive experience.
