The "Add a New Owner" section is used add a new pet owner to the system. Depending on the selected options in the Maintain Company Information -> Application Preferences section, credit card information and/or email address may or may not be required. You cannot leave required fields blank and successfully save an owner record. All required fields must have an alpha/numeric value to successfully add the owner record. For example, if you don't have Emergency Contact or Emergency Contact phone use "update" or "n/a" in those fields. This will allow you to successfully add that owner and go back later and update that information.
Most of the fields are self-explanatory, but there are a few items that require further description.
There are communication settings options for Email and SMS messages.
