Health & Safety

All owners must fill in the Pet Information Form before the start of the first sit. If your pet falls ill during the sit and we are unable to contact you, we will contact the vet on the form. Owners are responsible for payment for any treatment administered.


It is the owner's responsibility to disclose their pet's previous health and agression history to Sunset Paws. If a pet displays aggressive behaviour towards us and we are not able to safely manage the situation, we reserve the right to contact the emergency contact listed on the Pet Information Form and end the sit.
