I, the undersigned owner or agent of the pet identified above, certify that I am eighteen years of age or over and authorize the staff/veterinarians of Companion Animal Hospital of Waller to perform the above procedure(s) and understand that I am responsible for all charges related to this patient. All patients should receive an estimate to inform you of the expected expense.
I have received or declined an estimate.
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.
Companion Animal Hospital of Waller performs labwork on all surgical patients. Labwork provides valuable information to the veterinarian prior to any anesthetic being administered. The pre-anesthetic labwork checks kidney values, liver values, glucose, and blood counts. The comprehensive profile shows more detailed kidney and liver values, and is highly recommended for our patients over the age of 7.
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. 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.
