Nervous Dogs & Accidents: While the utmost caution and care are taken to groom your dog, there is always the possibility an accident can occur. Extreme caution and patience is exercised when grooming your pet, but accidents could include razor burn, nicks, scratches, etc.

If in the rare occurrence, an accident does happen, it is agreed that all expenses for veterinary care will be covered by the dog’s owner upon signing this contract/agreement.
Senior Dogs, Stress on Dogs & Veterinary care: Careful attention is made to make your pet’s grooming experience is stress-free, but grooming procedures can sometimes be stressful, especially for dogs with health problems, senior dogs or dogs with behavioral problems. The grooming process itself can expose hidden medical problems or aggravate a current one during or after the groom. This contract/agreement gives permission for Sabina Poinelli to seek medical attention immediately should it be deemed necessary. Sabina Poinelli will do his/her best to contact me first, then take my pet to my authorized Veterinarian. I agree that I will pay for all expenses for Veterinary care.
