Grooming Release Form

Please complete the following form prior to your pet's grooming appointment with Tina.

Required vaccinations:

Dogs: Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella, Rabies vaccinations and negative fecal exam within one year. Puppies must be current on age appropriate vaccinations, parasite exams, and deworming. Cats: Distemper and Rabies vaccinations and negative fecal exam within one year.

***If the vaccinations are not current or no proof of vaccination is provided, the necessary vaccines/fecal exam will be done at the time of admission.***

Drop off time for grooming is anywhere from 7am-10am. Tina typically begins grooming at approximately 10 am.

Pick Up Time: We now specify pick up times at the time of scheduling. Your specific pick up time should have been discussed when you scheduled your appointment. If you have any questions about your scheduled pick up time please call the office at 910-799-2970. Please note, that your pet will likely not be groomed straight through and will need to stay with us for several hours at minimum. Tina will groom all of the pets in her care gradually throughout the day as it is the most efficient and often least stressful way. Pets that are sedated will need to be picked up at the end of the day so that we can ensure that they have safely recovered from sedation.

Your pet is important to us. We care about your pet's safety and well being, and want to assure you that every effort will be made to make your pet's visit as pleasant as possible. If your pet has severe tangling or matting of hair, there is an increased risk of injury such as nicks and clipper irritation. Additionally, grooming may expose hidden medical problems or aggravate current ones. While we make every effort to avoid such complications, they occasionally do arise as a result of grooming. I certify that am the owner or authorized agent for the owner of the above named pet and I authorize Needham Animal Hospital to admit this pet to their hospital for grooming services and neccesary treatments.I understand that any medical problems will be treated as deemed best by the veterinarian on duty. Should the hospital not be able to reach me within a reasonable amount of time in case of medical emergency, I authorize the attending veterinarian to administer the minimum medical treatment required to ensure the health and safety of my pet. I accept the financial responsibility for treatment and understand that payment is due in full at the time of discharge.I have read and understand the hospital's policies.
