If a medical problem is discovered, an agent of Lake City Animal Hospital will telephone the owner or emergency contact to discuss the problem and determine the course of action to be taken.
If the owner or emergency contact cannot be reached, the attending veterinarian has my permission to take the necessary steps to diagnose and treat, in accordance with current medical standards. In case of emergency, measures to preserve and stabilize vital function shall be taken immediately.
This is an agreement between Lake City Animal Hospital (LCAH) and the pet owner and charges for boarding services requested and all veterinary costs for the pet(s) during the period said pet(s) is in the care of LCAH. By signing this Agreement and leaving pet with LCAH, Owner certifies the accuracy of all information given about said pet and ownership thereof.
Owner agrees to be solely responsible for any and all acts or behavior of said pet while it is in the care of LCAH, to include injury to other animals and humans. Owner certifies that said pet(s) has not been exposed to communicable diseases within the last 30 days and has not bitten any person in the last 10 days.
LCAH pledges to give appropriate care to all boarded pets. LCAH takes the responsibility for the safety and care of your pets very seriously. The boarding facility is not staffed overnight; however, the facility is a well maintained environment with a monitored alarm system to ensure safety.
Owner will not hold LCAH responsible for conditions that often are unavoidable in boarding environments such as, but not limited to, weight loss, rough hair, skin irritation, cough, infectious respiratory disease such as canine influenza and Bordetella, bloat and sudden death.
In case of a medical emergency I acknowledge the LCAH staff may not be able to immediately contact me and is therefore authorized, in its sole discretion, to perform veterinary services, procedures, emergency surgery, or administer medicine or give other requisite attention to said pet(s).
Owner hereby agrees to reimburse LCAH for veterinary costs, whether specifically authorized or not. Owner understands that if owner fails to pick up pet(s) within 10 days of specified pick up date said pet(s) will be considered abandoned and will be handled in accordance with the Georgia State Law and that doing so does not relieve owner of financial obligations.
By signing below, I confirm that I have read and understand the information printed above.
