Many drugs that have been approved for use in humans and/or some animals have also been proven to be safe and effective in species for which the drug is not labeled. Our Veterinarians, often by necessity, must recommend, administer and prescribe drugs that are considered off-label. With notification, I authorized my pets’ veterinarian to use off-label medications where appropriate.
I authorize the release of my pet’s medical records to local government, grooming, boarding, daycare, and veterinary facilities without additional consent. Additionally, in the event that you’ve notified us your pet is covered by veterinary pet insurance, we will send medical records to your insurer when requested.
At times you may invite an employee or another 3rd party service whom we recommend watching your pets / home when you are out of town. These services are established privately and are separate from any medical care or veterinary services you are receiving from MuraBella Animal Hospital.
Cancellations without 12hrs notice or No-Show Appointments will be charged a $20 fee. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment you may have to wait or be rescheduled to another day.
If your pet is staying in the hospital with us, examples include surgery, drop-off appointment, grooming, hospitalization, and other reasons, and live fleas, ticks, or other parasites are found on your pet, they will be treated for this issue with no additional communication and at your sole expense. This ensures the health and safety of other patients and team members.
There are risks involved when purchasing pharmaceuticals or food products for your pet over the Internet or from pharmacies that do not get their products directly from the manufacturer.

I understand that MuraBella Animal Hospital, including staff, doctors, and affiliated parties will be held harmless from the use of products and/or prescriptions purchased from sources outside of the clinic’s monitoring and control.
