I, the undersigned owner or agent of the pet identified above, authorize the staff of South Arbor Animal Hospital to sedate my pet today.
I understand that some risks always exist with any drugs or medications that are administered to my pet. I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure(s) is/are initiated.
I understand that the attending veterinarian will make every effort to contact me regarding treatment in the case of unforeseen emergencies. If unable to contact me, the staff may or may not have my permission to proceed with life sustaining procedures.
I give my permission for the above statement:
While I accept that all procedures will be performed to the best of the abilities of the staff at this hospital, I understand that no guarantee or warranty has been made regarding the results that may be achieved.
I also assume full responsibility for any additional expenses incurred after the procedure is performed, such as follow up radiographs, re-check physical exams and additional procedures/surgeries due to post-op complications. These are more likely to occur when there is a failure to comply with the aftercare instructions.
I have read and fully understand the terms and conditions set forth above.
