CONSENT: I hereby authorize the doctors and staff of the Animal Clinic of West Plains to perform such diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical procedures as described above. The nature of such services has been described to me to my satisfaction. I realize that there are risks involved with any anesthetic or surgical procedure, and that no guarantee or warranty can be made regarding the results or cure. I also authorize the hospital staff, in an emergency situation, to follow through with such procedures as are necessary for the wellbeing of my pet on a continuing basis until further communication with me. I have been given an estimate (if requested) and understand that it is an approximation of planned procedures and the final bill may be more or less than this amount. I understand that I assume financial responsibility for all services rendered and that my pet may not be released to me unless payment is received in full.
