All Animals entering Bergen Veterinary Hospital must be up to date on vaccinations and free of external parasites, or they will be treated upon entry at the owner's expense.
I understand the nature of the procedure(s), that there are risks involved with any surgery or procedure, and that no guarantees are made as to the results or cure. I understand that sedation or general anesthesia may be necessary to relieve anxiety during procedures and/or to insure the safety of pets and employees.
I authorize the veterinarians and the staff of Bergen Veterinary Hospital to perform all procedures as set forth in the attached estimate, including surgery, medical services, treatment, laboratory tests, X-rays, medications, and anesthetics.
I understand that an attendant is not on the hospital premises at night to monitor my pet.
I understand it is my responsibility to return for this animal when treatment is completed. Ten days after being informed of such, if the animal has not been discharged, it will be considered abandoned and reported as such to the local SPCA and become property of Bergen Veterinary Hospital unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Such action does not relieve my obligation for paying all incurred charges.
I understand during the performance of procedure(s) or operation(s), unforseen conditions may arise necessitating an extension of the above procedure(s) or operation(s) or additional laboratory tests other than those set forth above. Therefore, I hereby consent to and authorize the performance of such procedure(s) or additional tests as are necessary and desirable in the exercise of the veterinarian's professional judgement.
Bergen Veterinary Hospital will use all reasonable precautions against injury, escape or death of my pet, but will not be held responsible in connection with or in any understood that I assume all risks. I have read and do understand this consent and hereby voluntarily execute my consent.
