  2. Communicable illnesses and/or viruses such as Kennel Cough, Canine Influenza, pink eye and/or upper respiratory infections can be transferred among dogs.  This is similar to children in daycare where contagious viruses spread.  I further understand that even if my dog(s) has/have been given the Bordetella vaccine, there is a chance that my dog (s) can still contract kennel Cough.  I agree that I will NOT hold Kara’s K9 Retreat responsible if my dog(s) contract Kennel Cough or any other illness/diseases.

_I understand that in the event that my dog(s) appears to be ill or experiencing a medical problem, Kara’s K9 Retreat will attempt to contact me for instructions prior to seeking veterinary care.  If I or the emergency contact cannot be reach or if a medical emergency arises, I agree that Kara’s K9 Retreat may use its reasonable discretion in seeking veterinary care on my behalf and I will be responsible for all medical bills, boarding and/or
