By signing the Boarding Admission Form electronically, you are agreeing to the policies and charges listed above and the stipulations below:

  • I understand that even though precautions are taken to prevent contagious upper respiratory tract infections (i.e. “Kennel Cough”), the possibility of exposure does exist and I will not hold McKinney Animal Hospital liable.
  • I understand that at times some animals may experience vomiting and diarrhea during boarding or hospitalization (usually due to stress and/or diet change). Pets will occasionally refuse their food during their stay. When this occurs, our doctors will supplement their diets with the appropriate prescribed canned food at no additional charge. I give McKinney Animal Hospital consent to supplement diet and treat as needed, unless I have indicated that I do not wish the pet’s diet supplemented on the admission form.
  • I understand that McKinney Animal Hospital scans each pet for a microchip when presented for boarding. If a microchip is found and has not been enrolled with the owners information, we will discuss with the owner and recommend that the pet is registered. Also, if a microchip is found, we will document this identification number in the pet’s history.
  • I understand that should an illness, injury, existing or previous medical condition arise, and if I can not be contacted at the emergency number provided, McKinney Animal Hospital will treat my animal as deemed appropriate by the doctor in charge. This includes but is not limited to ear infections and the dispensing of ear medications. I accept responsibility for charges incurred during treatment.
