When I look after someone's pet if they are on vacation, I have them write out a note giving me the legal right to take their dog to a vet if needed, and also, I have the right to make choices in the case of emergency. I have them date and sign it. Accidents happen, so, no, usually you aren't responsible in most cases if the dog gets sick. If the dog/cat was run over by a car most people won't sue you, but you should offer to pay for the next pet they get just for your own conscience sake.

Are you liable if someone gets hurt on your property while helping you?

Maybe. It depends on how and why they were injured. You invited them on your property, so you owe them a high duty of care. If they were injured due to a faulty step or a hole in the ground that you should have repaired, you'd be liable. However, if they were injured due to their own negligence, you wouldn't be. For example, if I brought my own chain saw and my own beer onto your property and managed to cut myself while drunk, you probably wouldn't be liable.
