I consent to my registered veterinary practice sharing any appropriate information with the proprietor to meet the terms of boarding and licensing requirements.
I give my consent for any urgent medical treatment (including surgery) that may be required, in the opinion of the proprietor and their veterinary surgeon, for my pet during their stay.
Multiple animals on the same booking may share a pen with each other unless I instruct otherwise. I understand it may be necessary to separate my pets if the proprietor feels there is a welfare issue.
Animals are accepted for check in and check out by appointment during business hours only, currently 9am - 12noon and 3pm - 5pm Mon - Sat and 9am - 12noon on Sundays.
The proprietors have permission to make permanent re-homing arrangements, at their discretion, for animals not collected within 14 days of the check out date overleaf, having received no communication from their owner, or for animals with more than 45 days outstanding boarding fees.
All costs associated with unpaid accounts and debt recovery are borne by the debtor. Overdue accounts attract a late payment charge of 8% of the outstanding amount for every month they are overdue.
Animals boarding are insured as standard. This does not cover pre-existing conditions.
Daily rate is inclusive of insurance and VAT.
Boarding fees are payable, in full by cash or debit/credit card only, at the time animals are collected. You are charged for the day of arrival and each following day including the collection day.
Whilst every possible care and attention is given to every animal boarded, we can not be held responsible for loss, either from illness or any other cause, due to matters outside of our reasonable control.
