Your pet sitter may ask you to complete a Veterinary Release form. This form in case your pet needs medical attention while in your pet sitters care. Of course your pet sitter will call you right away in the event of an emergency! But you may miss the call for whatever reason. This form allows your pet sitter to get your pet into the vet for care & get medical treatment started until they can get a hold of you.
The Emergency Clinic information is just as important as your regular vet’s information! These are the clinics that are open when your regular veterinarian is closed (Nights, Weekends & Holidays). If you do not know of an Emergency Clinic please research into the closest ones in your area. As you also may be in need of it some day!
It is suggested that your veterinarian be provided a copy of this form in your pets records as well. Be sure to update the vet information with you pet sitter if you change vets or move!
