I am the authorized owner of the animal described 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. I agree to pay a deposit of 50% of the estimated cost at time of drop off and assume financial responsibility for the remaining fees, agreeing to provide payment via cash, credit card, Scratch Pay or Care Credit at the time my pet is discharged.
I have read and understand this authorization and hereby accept and agree to the terms of the consent for treatment.
Please note, if your pet is having a spay or neuter, we do routinely apply a small tattoo
on their abdomen which indicates they are fixed.
**Up to date vaccines (Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella for dogs; Rabies and FCRP for cats) and an up to date heartworm test are all required (if no proof of doing them elsewhere) for surgical procedures/prior to going under anesthesia**
