K9 Etiquette believes that our number one priority is to insure that your pet remains safe and well cared for while in our care. We do our best to have all pets screened for pre-existing health conditions but some factors may be beyond our control. In the event that a medical emergency arises while a pet is at our facility it is imperative that we are immediately able to get them medical treatment. Upon a medical emergency K9 Etiquette will first contact the owner of the pet. If the owner is unable to be reached K9 Etiquette will then attempt to contact the emergency contact person on record. If K9 Etiquette is unable to reach either contact person at the time of the emergency or if the contact person is unable to return to the facility in a timely fashion K9 Etiquette will call ahead to the veterinary offices in closest proximity geographically to us to insure that they can handle the emergency present. The pet will then be rushed to the closest available veterinarian for treatment. Our goal is to get your pet medical attention as quickly as humanly possible. For that reason, it is a requirement to have all pet parents signs this form.
