I authorize the use of appropriate anesthetics and other medications. I have been advised of the nature of the procedure(s) and the risks involved. I realize that results cannot be guaranteed and I assume all risks of anesthesia, surgery and failure to follow post operative care instructions including cage rest and the use of an e-collar. Without an e-collar, your pet is capable of scratching, biting and traumatizing the surgical site impeding recovery and possibly leading to secondary infection and the need for additional surgery at an additional cost to you. An e-collar must be worn until full recovery is achieved and sutures are removed.
