General Waiver for Behavior Vets
Thank you for consulting with Behavior Vets about your patient. Dealing with training and behavioral disorders in pets can be very distressing, and we are honored that you have trusted us. Frequent communication and reasonable expectations are important when working on training and behavioral problems. Client participation will, to a large extent, determine whether your pet improves. While improvements are common with many behavior and training problems, most behavior problems are not completely curable. For instance, if your pet is growling, hissing, snapping or biting, it is likely that even with treatment this behavior will occur sometimes in the future. You could be held solely legally and financially responsible for any injuries that your pet causes. You alone are responsible for avoiding situations that could result in injury. By signing this form you are indicating you understand that managing behavior problems involves inherent risk, and that you agree not to hold Animal Care Center of Castle Pines, Veterinary Management Services LLC, Veterinary Behavior Solutions PA (DBA Behavior Vets of CO and Behavior Vets of NYC), Veterinary Behavior Solutions LLC, Behavior Vets LP, Veterinary Behavior Consultations of Colorado LLC, Veterinary Behavior Consultations of NYC, PLLC, Dr. E'Lise Christensen (also known as Dr. E'Lise Christensen Bell), Dr. Barbara Wolfe, Dr. Kerry Muhovich, Dr. Simone Sidel, Dr. Natalie Maffeo, Dr. Andrea Y.

Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold Releasees harmless from and against any and all third-party claims, damages, liabilities, actions, judgments, suits, costs, disbursements and expenses of any kind of nature, including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted or awarded against Releasees in connection with the treatment of your pet.
