Veterinary Release Agreement 

In the event that any of my pets or large animals appears to be ill, injured, or at significant risk of experiencing a 

medical problem at the start of service, or while in the care of North Shore Pet Sitters, I give permission to North 

Shore Pet Sitters to seek veterinary service from a veterinarian or a veterinary clinic.  My preferred veterinary 

services are listed on each individual Pet Information Disclosure.  Other veterinarians or emergency care clinics 

chosen by the pet sitter are acceptable.   

I ask North Shore Pet Sitters to inform the attending clinic or veterinarian of my requested total diagnosis and 

treatment limit of $_____________  per pet / all pets (most common values are $200, $1000, or unlimited).  I 

understand that efforts will be made to contact me regarding any treatments, illness, injury, or potential 

problems as soon as the condition is deemed not life threatening and/or contact is possible.   I understand that 

North Shore Pet Sitters care providers work hard to prevent accidents and injuries, and that such problems may 

occur no matter how well a pet is cared for.  I agree to allow North Shore Pet Sitters care providers to use their 

best judgment in handling these situations, and I understand that North Shore Pet Sitters and its staff assume 

no responsibility for the actions and decisions of the veterinary staff, the health, or death of my pet(s). 

I will assume full responsibility for the payment and/or reimbursement for any and all veterinary services 

rendered, including but not limited to diagnosis, treatment, grooming, medical supplies, and boarding.  Such 

payments will be made within 14 days of the initial incident.  I also agree to be responsible for all Special 

Service fees assessed by North Shore Pet Sitters for emergency transportation, care, supervision, or hiring of 

emergency caregivers, and will pay such fees within 14 days of each incident. 

I further authorize North Shore Pet Sitters and my primary veterinarian(s) to share all of the medical records of 

all of my animals with veterinary clinics in an emergency in the interest of providing the best care for my ill or 

injured animal(s). 

Every dog, cat, and horse at the site of service will be current (per my veterinarians recommendations) on its 

rabies vaccinations prior to the arrival of any caregiver.  I will also make arrangements to guarantee that each 

animal will remain current on its rabies vaccinations throughout each service visit period. 

I agree to notify North Shore Pet Sitters of any signs of injury or possible illness before any visit as soon as the 

condition appears.  North Shore Pet Sitters reserves the right to cancel service at any location where a pet with 

a potentially infectious condition exists.  North Shore Pet Sitters strives to provide clean, safe service to each of 

our clients.  In doing so, North Shore Pet Sitters strongly recommends that each pet and large animal be 

vaccinated, de-wormed, and protected from harmful insects according to veterinarian recommended standards. 

This agreement is valid from the date below and grants permission for future veterinary care without the need 

for additional authorization each time North Shore Pet Sitters cares for one or more of my pets.  I understand 

that this agreement applies to all of the pets and large animals within North Shore Pet Sitters care.  In signing 

this contract, I agree that I have the sole authority to make health, medical, and financial decisions regarding the 

animals that will be scheduled to receive service.
