I understand that my pet is being left in the medical care of Animal Medical Center Copperas Cove, its veterinarians and staff. I further understand that every effort will be made to ensure my pet’s safety and comfort. I hereby authorize the use of anesthesia for any procedure or treatments performed in the care of my pet. I further authorize any and all necessary surgical operations and/or medical treatment as they may decide necessary or advisable upon my pet. Some veterinary procedures need to be performed with your pet under anesthesia (for example: dentistry, surgery, and some diagnostic imaging Like any medical procedure, anesthesia does have risks. These risks can run from minor problems, such as mild vomiting after recovery from anesthesia, to life-threatening problems such as cardiac arrest or stroke. Anesthesia related deaths are rare, and while complications can occur, the veterinary team will take all of the necessary precautions to ensure that your pet is safe and can handle anesthesia.
