As the representing owner, agent or handler dealing with the individuals who will be working with the pet(s) indicated above, I understand that behavior therapies recommended by Dr. Laurie Bergman may involve some level of risk to the pet(s) and or the handlers, or other people or property in spite of our best efforts to minimize them. I will use my own judgement and common sense when following any recommendations so as not to place people, pets and property at undue risk.
Furthermore, I realize that the clinicians, Hickory Veterinary Hospital and its agents/ employees cannot guarantee that a pet will not be aggressive or cause injury to people or property in the future and I acknowledge that the pet's owner(s) and handler(s) continue to be solely responsible and assume all liability for any future aggression or misbehavior.
By typing my name below, I am freely assuming these risks and shall not hold Hickory Veterinary Hospital or its clinicians, agents, employees or facility owners liable for any loss or injury which may occur to handlers, pet, or other people, other animals or property while using their training and medication treatment recommendations, and I hereby waive any claim for damages arising out of such matters and agree to hold Hickory Veterinary Hospital and its clinicians/ agents/ employees harmless from any such claims.
