I, the undersigned owner, am responsible for seeking veterinary care for the pet identified above and certify that I consent to the examination of this pet by veterinarians at Fish Creek Pet Hospital. I also agree that after consultation with me, the hospital's veterinarians may prescribe medication to: treat, hospitalize, sedate, anesthetize and/or perform surgery on my pet. I understand that some risks always exist with anesthesia and/or surgery and that I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure is initiated. Should some unexpected life-saving emergency care be required, and the attending veterinarian is unable to reach me, the hospital staff have my permission to provide such treatment, and I agree to pay for such care.
I understand that an estimate of the costs for veterinary services will be discussed with me and that I am encouraged to discuss all fees related to such care before services are rendered and during my pet's ongoing medical treatment.
I agree that either I, or an authorized agent of mine, will pick up my pet within 24 hours of receiving written or oral notification that my pet is ready to be released from the hospital. I agree that if I fail to comply with this policy, the hospital may handle this abandonment in a manner that is in the best interest of the pet and the hospital. I agree that I, or an authorized agent of mine, will pay for all accrued charges when picking up my pet.
