I understand that I am responsible for all professional and hospital fees, including fees for medications and diagnostic procedures, and agree to pay, in full, for all services at the time they are rendered. This responsibility continues in the event my pet fails to recover, dies, or is euthanized. I am encouraged to discuss all fees attendant to the care of my animal before services are rendered, and to request a written estimate of involved fees if one has not been provided to me. Any verbal or written estimate of charges or fees is only a best approximation, and the final charges may be less than or greater than this amount. I agree to pay, upon request, a deposit of 50% of the estimated fees for hospitalization or admittance for a surgical or dental procedure, and to pay for the balance of all services rendered on a cash, credit card or check basis upon discharge.
