    Your animal is very important to us and Monte Vista Pet Lodge would like to assure you that every effort will be made to make your animal's grooming experience as safe and pleasant as possible. Safety comes first for everyone during the grooming process: people as well as the animals. You are required to execute a Grooming Release form prior to any services being performed.
  • Health or Medical Problems: Occasionally grooming can expose a hidden medical problem or aggravate a current one. This can occur during or after grooming. All medical expenses for veterinary care will be covered by the animal's owner upon signing this agreement.

    Accidents: Although accidents are very rare, there is a risk when handling pets. Although we use extreme caution and care in all situations, grooming equipment is extremely sharp and possible accidents can occur, including (but not limited to): cuts, nicks, scratches, or quicking of the nails. In most cases, this can happen when a pet is wiggling or moving around. Your pet’s safety and comfort is our number one priority. In the event an accident does occur, you will be notified. If we feel it is an accident requiring veterinary attention and the pet owner is not on‐site, we will seek immediate veterinary care for your animal.

    Veterinarian Authorization ‐‐ Medical Emergencies: This release gives Monte Vista Pet Lodge full authorization to seek medical treatment from the nearest licensed veterinarian in the case of any medical emergencies while the pet is in our care. All veterinary costs and expenses will be the responsibility of the animal's owner.
