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.
The nature of these operations or procedures has been explained to me and I understand what will be done. I understand that my pet will have a shaved area on his/her leg where an IV catheter was placed.
I understand that there are certain risks and complications associated with any procedure that requires anesthesia. I further understand that during the course of the operation or procedure, unforeseen conditions may arise that may necessitate the performance of additional procedures.
I understand that my pet will be given a thorough physical examination prior to the anesthetic/surgical procedure. In addition, Foothills Veterinary Hospital recommends pre-anesthetic blood work (required for animals 8 years old and older). This blood work, together with the physical examination, provides a more complete assessment of the patient's health and may reveal conditions undetected by an examination alone.
I authorize the use of appropriate anesthesia and pain relief medication as needed before and after the procedure to assure that my pet is pain free while at the hospital. I understand that an additional charge of $25-$50 may be applied at the Doctor's discretion to best manage my pet's pain.
I understand that hospital support personnel will be used as deemed necessary by the veterinarian.
