Terms of Service and Disclaimer
In a nutshell, “iwillhelpyourcat.com” is not a substitute for regular veterinary care that a licensed veterinarian provides through regular, routine, in-person office visits. Most people know that, but Im going to spell out my Terms of Service and Disclaimer.
Lets be clear: two audiences will be viewing “iwillhelpyourcat.com”.
1) The first are my clients that I have met in person, and I have recently examined your pet, or see them on an annual basis in clinic. That is, we have established a valid Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR). Any veterinarian must have sufficient knowledge of the animal, including its health status, immunization history, nutrition, management, environment and hygiene, to provide a diagnosis and recommend treatment. After our VCPR is established, I may recommend viewing this website to obtain further general information. Instead of sending you home with information sheets, you now have an online resource.
2) The second audience that will be utilizing this website have never met me in person with your pet, so we do not have a VCPR. Regardless of having a VCPR or not, the information (videos, PDF, information products or emails) or advice provided on “iwillhelpyourcat” is provided as a guide, and a not a definitive recommendation to utilize any described action or treatment. Nothing transmitted to or from me or iwillhelpyourcat, including email correspondence, constitutes the establishment of a VCPR between you, your pet, and me (sorry, you would have to see me in clinic first as noted above)! I cannot prescribe medicine or diagnose a medical condition. This website is not intended to prescribe medicine or diagnose a medical condition. In other words, this website and any correspondence is for educational and entertainment purposes only. By using “iwillhelpyourcat”, you understand that there are risks and limitations associated with consulting with a vet online, as no VCPR has been established.
Before acting on any of the advice in the blog posts, articles, videos, emails, Dr. Kris Q&A or information products you should see if the advice is first applicable by talking with your own veterinarian that you have a VCPR with. The information on this website (including emails, PDF’s, videos and any information products) is provided for general informational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional veterinary medical advice, evaluation, or care from your veterinarian. Nothing on the site should be used for treating or diagnosing a pet’s medical or health condition by replacing a relationship with your veterinarian.
In case of emergency, seek immediate assistance from your vet or emergency vet clinic. Do not disregard medical advice because of something you have read on this website. Do not delay seeking advice from your own vet. No medications, supplements or treatments described on this site should be administered or begun without first consulting your veterinarian.
YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE SITE AND THE SERVICE YOU ARE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE. Everything on the site is provided to you “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but nor limited to, the implied warranties or merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringment.
In no case shall iwillhelpyourcat, our service provider, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the service or any products procured using the service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the service or any product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content (or product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless iwillhelpyourcat and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Service or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
