I understand that anesthesia/sedation comes with inherent risks and that complications and even death are possible. I understand that during the performance of the exam/procedures for the above situation(s), unforeseen conditions may be revealed that necessitate and extension of the foregoing procedures, or even procedures necessary and desirable in the exercise of the veterinarian's professional judgment. I understand that some risks exist with anesthesia and/or surgery and that I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the veterinarian before beginning the procedure. Should unexpected life-saving emergency care be required and the veterinarian or staff member is unable to reach me, the hospital staff has my permission to provide such treatment, and I agree to pay all fees incurred. I have been advised of the nature of the services and procedures, as well as the risks involved, and I also realize that results cannot be guaranteed. I additionally authorize the use of appropriate anesthetics, and the administration of other medications, and understand that hospital staff will be utilized as deemed necessary by the veterinarian.
