  • Surgery - Anesthetic Procedure Authorization

    Blood Testing For Pets Under 6 years old: Pre-anesthetic blood tests help ensure your pet’s liver and kidneys are working well, and ensure they have the appropriate levels of red blood cells, blood proteins, and blood sugar. Each of these things are important while under anesthesia. It is uncommon or younger pets to have issues with these parameters, but pre-anesthetic blood testing is the only way to be certain. Changes on blood tests are more common in older pets, so pets over 6 years old are required to have pre-anesthetic blood tests.
  • I, the undersigned owner or agent of the owner of the pet identified above, certify that I am of eighteen years of age or over and authorize the veterinarian(s) at this practice 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. My signature on this form indicates that any questions I have regarding the following issues have been answered to my satisfaction:
    • The reasonable medical and/or surgical treatment options for my pet
    • Sufficient details of the procedures to understand what will be performed
    • How fully my pet will recover and how long it will take
    • The most common and serious complications
    • The length and type of follow-up care and home restraint required
    • The estimate of the fees for all services
    • Any necessary payment arrangements
    While I accept that all procedures will be performed to the best of the abilities of the staff at this hospital, I understand that veterinary medicine is not an exact science and that no guarantee or warranty has been made regarding the results that may be achieved. I agree to pay the estimated fees, assume financial responsibility for the remaining fees, and provide payment in full at the time my pet is discharged from the hospital. Should an unexpected critical situation arise (choose one):
