I understand that in the event my pet becomes ill, the staff will attempt to contact me or my agent immediately to discuss the problem and treatment options. If I or my agent cannot be reached, I herby authorize GVH to initiate appropriate treatment until I or my agent can be reached. Should an EMERGENCY arise, I authorize the medical staff to sedate/anesthetize my pet and/or perform such emergency procedures as may be necessary for the health of my pet until I can be consulted. I agree to pay, in full, for all charges for necessary services rendered to my pet. In the event of death of my pet, I understand that the staff will immediately attempt to contact me. If I am unreachable, I understand that the body will be held until I return to discuss body care and disposition.
I understand that the hospital is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items left with my pet, including, but not limited to, cages, dishes, toys, and bedding.
I will call if my pick-up date changes so GVH can plan accordingly. If I neglect to pick up my pet within 5 days of the date scheduled for discharge and do not notify you within that time period, you may assume that my pet is abandoned and are hereby authorized to proceed as you deem best and/or necessary.
