Q10 Amount approved for treatment:

I understand that AAH will make every attempt to manage all sick cases at the hospital, BUT if it is after hours and a doctor is not available, we may need to transfer your dog to Upstate Veterinary Specialties. The fee for transportation is $45 each way. If an employee needs to stay with your pet, the cost $10/half hour. These fees will be added to your pet’s boarding bill.
I agree to pay $2.00 per administration of medications that are not eaten with my pet’s meals. This includes oral, eye, ear, injectable and topical medications.
I agree if my pet is staying longer than 7 days, AAH will bathe my pet the day before he/she leaves the kennel for free at your discretion. I understand that most baths and grooms are done prior to my return and that the staff does their best to keep every dog as clean as possible in the kennel. I understand that if I want my pet to be groomed by the stylist, additional fees may apply. I will inform AAH if I would like my pet groomed during check in.
I agree to release Aqueduct Animal Hospital and its agents and employees from any and all liabilities or claim due to injury to myself, my pet, or any other property of mine, which may arise in any way out of services and/or products provided by or as a consequence of my association with Aqueduct Animal Hospital. AAH is not liable if my pet causes injury to him/herself and is not liable for stress related illness that they are not in control of. If I choose to board more than one of my pets in the same enclosure, I release AAH of all liability in the event that one pet causes injury to another. I understand that boarding can be stressful, and my pets may act differently in this environment than they do in their home, to the point of causing a fight between themselves.
I agree to pay for all services due by the date of checkout or my pet/s will not be released from Aqueduct Animal Hospital (AAH).
