Like you, our greatest concern is the well-being of your pet. Before any medications are given to your pet, a pre-anesthetic examination is performed. BHVG recommends that in addition to this exam, a blood profile should be evaluated to maximize patient safety and alert the doctor to the presence of any preexisting conditions which may complicate the procedure.
Chemistry Profile/Electrolytes: evaluates vital organ function and electrolytes to ensure that the anesthesia protocol is as safe as possible. CBC (Complete Blood Count): evaluates the numbers and characteristics on red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
I hereby certify that I am the owner of the above named animal or I am responsible for the above named animal and have the authority to execute this consent. I authorize sedation/anesthesia/surgery for my pet. The nature and risks of this procedure have been explained to me. I understand that some risks always exist with anesthesia/sedation, and I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with my veterinary hospital before the procedure(s) are initiated. I also understand and assume financial responsibility and am aware balance is to be paid in full at the time services are rendered.
If a critical situation arises during the procedure (please initial one):
Option 1:I authorize Baeyens Hauk Veterinary Group to perform any additional diagnostics, treatments, or procedure(s) deemed necessary for medical/surgical complications, lifesaving action, or otherwise unforeseen circumstances.
I prefer no lifesaving actions to be taken if an emergency occurs (DNR).
