I hereby authorize the veterinarians of Lake Austin Boulevard Animal Hospital to perform such diagnostic, treatment, and surgical procedures as deemed advisable or necessary for my pet. The nature of the procedure(s) has been explained to me and no guarantee has been made as to the results or cure. I fully understand that there may be risk and the potential for complications including death to such procedure(s). Therefore, I hereby consent to and authorize the performance of such procedure(s) or operation(s) as are necessary and desirable in the exercise of the veterinarian’s professional judgment. I agree to pay, in full, for services rendered including those deemed necessary for medical or surgical complications or otherwise unforeseen circumstances. Any estimate of charges or fees for presently planned procedures is only a best approximation and the final bill may be greater or less than this amount. I understand that it is my responsibility to return for this animal when the treatment is completed. Seven days after being informed of such, if the animal has not been discharged, it will be considered abandoned and become the property of Lake Austin Boulevard Animal Hospital. Such action does not relieve my obligation for paying all incurred charges. I have read the above conditions for treatment and acknowledge that I may have a copy of this form if requested. All fees for services are due before the patient is released.
