I understand all surgical, anesthetic and medical procedures contain inherent risk. I understand the success of any surgical, anesthetic or medical procedure involves a multitude of factors, many of which are beyond the control of the veterinarian and staff.
I understand that homecare administered by myself or a designated caretaker is recommended to achieve best overall success. It is my responsibility to notify Austin Village Pet Hospital before altering the doctor’s recommendations. I understand that changes, supplementation, or alteration of any prescriptions may possibly result in an unfavorable or detrimental side effect with medical complications.
I have discussed the risk and possible complications related to the above procedure to my satisfaction.
I understand that during the performance of medical, surgical, dental, or anesthetic procedures, unforeseen conditions or complications may be revealed that necessitate more extensive, costly, or different diagnostics or treatments than originally planned. If the staff at Austin Village Pet Hospital is unable to reach me, I hereby consent to and authorize the performance of such procedures and extractions as are marked and consented to below. I understand that the cost of such procedures may increase the final bill.
In addition, if I have an estimate more than 30 days old, I understand that it is my responsibility to request an updated version.
We MUST be able to reach you at ALL TIMES during your pet’s procedure and recovery.
