I am the owner or the authorized agent for the owner of the animal named above, and I have the authority to execute this consent. My signature below certifies that I am over eighteen years of age.
I have been informed that there are certain risks and complications associated with sedation, anesthesia, and/or any operation/procedure and that the risks/complications have been explained to me. I further understand that during the course of the operations or procedures, unforeseen conditions may arise that may necessitate the performance of additional procedures deemed necessary by the veterinarian. I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about these risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure is initiated.
I authorize the use of appropriate anesthesia and pain relief medication as needed before, during or after the procedure. I have been informed that there are risks associated with the use of any medication. The nature of these operations or procedures has been explained to me and I understand what will be done. I am aware that the practice of veterinary medicine is not an exact science and, thus, there are no guarantees for successful treatment. I have been encouraged and given the opportunity to discuss any questions I may have regarding my pet's medical care and my questions have been answered to my satisfaction. I accept that my financial obligations remain regardless of the outcome.
To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, all hospitalized (including dropped off) patients must be current on all vaccines and free from internal and external parasites. The signature below authorizes this level of preventive care and the appropriate charges will be assessed on the discharge invoice.
I have read and understand this authorization and hereby accept and agree to the terms of the consent for treatment.
