Release and Hold Harmless Agreement

Your pet is important to us.  Because we care, we want to assure you that every effort will be taken to make your pet’s visit as pleasant as possible.  Occasionally, grooming can expose a hidden medical problem or aggravate a current one.  This can occur during or after grooming.  In the best interest of your pet, we request permission to obtain immediate veterinary treatment at your expense, should it become absolutely necessary.

If pet is hurt or becomes ill, Canine Cuts LLC has permission to obtain immediate medical care from the pet’s veterinarian, or the veterinarian of our choice if pet’s veterinarian is not accessible.  Pet owner agrees to pay all costs for medical treatment provided, unless illness or injury is a direct result of negligence of Canine Cuts LLC employees.  Canine Cuts LLC will not be held responsible for a sickness or injury caused by pet to itself during grooming.  Canine Cuts LLC will not be held responsible for clipper burn and/or minor nicks resulting from grooming of matted, neglected coats or for irritation caused by removing coat from pets possessing mild to sever skin allergy, nor will we be held responsible for stressful effects grooming may have upon a geriatric pet.

Canine Cuts LLC will be notified within 48 hours of any claims by owner regarding compensation for medical attention given as a result of alleged negligence of our staff.  In the event of dispute over owner’s claim, Canine Cuts LLC will personally consult the attending veterinarian prior to settling any claim.

Canine Cuts LLC reserves the right to charge additional fees for services we consider over and above the norm covered by our standard rates.  Owner agrees to be responsible for any property damage caused by their pet.  Canine Cuts LLC reserves the right to refuse service to customers whose pet may pose a threat to our employees and other pets left in our care, whether it be an aggression problem, health problem, or parasite problem.
