CONSENT TO GROOMING SERVICES:
You confirm your dog is fit and well to undergo the grooming process. The groomer will not be held liable or responsible for irritation, abrasion, patchiness or hair loss due to any pre-existing skin condition, or as a result of the process of grooming, de- matting, thinning, stripping or shaving, or any mishap caused by your non-disclosure of your pet’s medical condition or behaviour. If your dog is severely matted, you agree that the groomer has the discretion to humanely remove the matting by shaving under it which may result in a shorter trim than desirable. The groomer will always discuss this option with you when possible but will act in the best interests and comfort of your pet. If your pet bites or attempts to bite any person or pet, at the discretion of the groomer, treatment may stop & you will pay for all work done to that point & will pay the full cost of all damage & expense your pet has incurred. If you fail to collect/receive your pet at the agreed time, you will pay all extra costs due. If your pet harbours any parasites, they will be cleared at your expense. If your pet’s health causes concern, veterinary treatment will be sought at your expense. You confirm that all the facts you supplied are true. You agree to pay for appointments missed/cancelled without adequate notice. You accept & consent entirely to all the terms & conditions shown. This policy was created on 7th May 2017.
