Appointments Cancellations: An advance cancellation policy allows us to accommodate patients with critical needs as well as those receiving routine care. I understand that if I cancel or reschedule an appointment with less than 24 business hours for recheck assessments or 72 business hours for consultations/professional reviews I will be charged a fee ($35 for reassessment, full deposit for consultation/review). I also understand that appointment reminders are a courtesy and will be sent by email and text message. ***A PHONE CALL IS REQUIRED TO CANCEL, CHANGE OR RESCHEDULE ALL APPOINTMENTS***
Supplements & Products All supplements and products are available for purchase through our online apothecary: thepetfarmacy.com. For any prescription formulas, your treating veterinarian will be required to complete a prescription authorization.
Returns Personalized tinctures, creams, herbal formulations and essential oils cannot be returned. Unopened prepackaged containers and standard bulk herbs can be returned for a full refund minus a 10% restocking fee. The cost of return shipping will not be refunded.
Payment Payment is due at the time that services are rendered. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash, check and Care Credit. There is a $35 processing fee for returned checks. Accounts not paid within 30 days are subject to a 1.5% monthly finance charge.
Services Not Available Our practice is focused on holistic and integrative treatments. We do not offer surgery, x-rays, ultrasounds, vaccines, conventional medications, hospitalizations, biopsies, radiation therapy, euthanasia, or emergency care. All patients should maintain their relationship with a primary care veterinarian, as well as an emergency hospital, in the event these services are needed.
Medical Records Medical records will be obtained by our staff. At the time of scheduling, please make sure we have information on ALL veterinary practices that have previously evaluated your pet. If we are missing any records 7 days prior to your pet’s appointment, we will reach out to you asking to help in facilitation. Records not received 72 business hours prior to the scheduled appointment will not be reviewed at the time of the appointment.
Email Policy Email is to be used for office staff communication only. Dr. Pope is unable to answer medical questions via email due to the sheer volume of requests as well as the complicated nature of her patients. Any follow-up questions can be performed as additional medical record reviews or through a phone call between Dr. Pope and your primary treating veterinarian.

Dr. Kendra Pope, LLC, in addition to the use of conventional veterinary treatments, also utilizes treatments that are sometimes classified as alternative, complementary, and/or integrative therapies. These therapies include but are not limited to: herbal and botanical substances, nutritional supplements, IV vitamins, and nutrient therapies, and acupuncture. Some of these treatment techniques, as employed by Dr. Kendra Pope, LLC, are specifically designed for use in animals that are critically ill, non-responsive to conventional treatments and others have sometimes been deemed as hopeless.
Such alternative and/or integrative treatments are chosen, recommended, and/or administered to an animal when Dr. Kendra Pope, LLC believes that they have the potential to be efficacious in the treatment of an animal’s health problem. However, this is not a guarantee that the chosen medication or treatment will be effective in treating a specific animal’s problem. Additionally, as with all medications and treatments, there is always a chance for potential side effects. While adverse side effects are rare and every effort is made to minimize them, individual animals may not be able to tolerate the prescribed medication and/or treatment.
I acknowledge that I have read the above statement and understand it. As the legal owner and/or responsible agent for the animal described below, I grant you my consent to receive, prescribe for, and/or treat this animal, including the use of modalities and substances which may be considered to be alternative, complementary, and/or integrative. I recognize that recommendations and/or treatments are not guaranteed to cure or improve the health of my animal.
I expect this Practice to use all reasonable precautions against the injury or death of my animal, but I assume all risks associated with the treatment of my pet and release the Practice and officers, directors, affiliates, employees, agents, insurers, and stockholders of the Practice (collectively, the “Releasees”) from all liability and waive any and all claims, including but not limited to injury or death to my pet or damage to personal property, against Releasees in connection with or arising out of the Practice’s treatment of my pet as described herein.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to assist in the care of your pet. To ensure the best treatment plan possible, please take the time to fill out this form completely and in detail. This section is the most important and will take the longest to complete. Please plan to spend 20-30 minutes (or more) ensuring all details are complete and accurate as these will go directly into your pet's medical record for Dr. Pope's review. Please feel to get a cup of tea and take your time to ensure all information is accurate!
