This is only an estimate of charges, not a quote. This is not a receipt or bill. It is an initial statement prepared to estimate expenses during your animal’s period of hospitalization. We will make every effort to keep you informed of changes to the treatment plan. I authorize the attending veterinarian to use their professional judgment if I cannot be reached when a time sensitive decision is needed and understand I will be financially responsible for any additional services deemed necessary.
I understand that during the performance of procedure(s), unforeseen conditions may arise that necessitate an extension of the above-named procedure(s), or different procedure(s) other than those set forth above, which may include resuscitation. Therefore, I consent to and authorize the performance of such procedure(s) necessary and desirable in the exercise of the veterinarian’s professional judgment.
