By signing this form you authorize Sunset Animal Hospital and its agents to administer tranquilizers, anesthetics and/or analgesics that are deemed appropriate for your pet. Please be aware that all drugs have the potential for adverse side effects in any particular animal. The chances of such occurrence are extremely low.
I am aware that the staff is not on premises after hours, and I agree to indemnify Sunset Animal Hospital and its agents harmless from and against any and all legal liability arising from the care that is provided.
In an effort to ensure your pet's safety and to anticipate any problems before they may occur, we have available pre-anesthetic electrocardiogram and blood testing capabilities to detect hidden heart, liver, kidney or other problems, that may increase the risk to your pet. This testing is available for an additional charge. If abnormalities are detected we will attempt to notify you, and the anesthetic procedure may be delayed or modified. Please verify the procedures being performed and indicate your wishes concerning the option of pre-anesthetic testing. If you have questions please ask us, BEFORE signing and submitting this form.
