I understand that unforeseen conditions may be revealed during the procedures that may require more extensive or different treatments. I understand that all reasonable efforts will be made to contact me to authorize any additional treatments. However, if these efforts are unsuccessful, I authorize the performance of any procedures or treatments that are deemed immediately necessary for the health and wellbeing of my pet in the professional opinion of the attending veterinarian.
I understand that I assume financial responsibility for all services rendered.
The veterinarian has described the procedures identified in the consent form and has explained to my satisfaction the purpose for performing them and the risks involved with them. I realize that there can be no guarantee as to the outcome of any procedures.
I hereby authorize anesthesia/surgery for my pet. I understand that some risks always exist with anesthesia and/or surgery. My signature on this consent form indicates that any questions have been answered to my satisfaction. While KM Regional Veterinary Hospital provides the highest quality of anesthesia monitoring and surgical services, I understand that there are rare complications associated with any anesthetic or surgical procedure. In particular, I have been advised that there is an extremely small risk of death, complications, or side effects every time an anesthetic is used and that I have been advised of the possibility. I acknowledge these risks and understand that the veterinarians and hospital staff will try to minimize such risks. I will not hold KM Regional Veterinary Hospital, the veterinarians, or any staff member liable for any complications that may arise.
