For the enhanced protection of our patients, we recommend pre-surgical screening and intravenous
catheterization of all pets prior to administration of anesthetics. Please initial your desires below:
I, the undersigned owner or agent of the pet identified above, authorize the staff of Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital to perform the above procedure(s).
I understand that some risks always exist with anesthesia and/ or surgery and that I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure(s) is/are initiated.
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 surgical procedure is performed, such as follow up radiographs, re-check physical exams and additional surgery due to post-op complications. These are more likely to occur when there is a failure to comply with the aftercare instructions.
A complete physical exam will be performed on your pet prior to the surgical procedure if it has been longer than 30 days since the last exam. However, this may not identify all systemic or metabolic problems. For this reason, your pet will have a pre-anesthetic blood panel to evaluate major organ functions prior to anesthesia.
If your pet is in heat or pregnant an extra cost is added.
I have read and fully understand the terms and conditions set forth above.
