I am the owner (or authorized agent for) of the above-mentioned animal. I have discussed the reasons for hospitalization and I am satisfied with the treatment plan. The nature of such services has been described to me to my satisfaction and I realize that neither guarantee nor warranty can ethically or professionally be made regarding the results or cure. I authorize use of sedatives and pain medications if deemed warranted. If anesthesia or sedation is required, I understand, and accept that there are always inherent risks, including death. I also authorize the clinic staff in an emergency situation, to follow through with such procedures as are necessary for the well-being of my pet on a continuing basis until further communication with me is possible.
It is understood that there may be unforeseen complications and that further treatment may be necessary during the hospitalization. I accept and assume full and total financial responsibility for any and all services rendered by the clinic, its staff or employees in the treatment of the above-described animal and agree to pay the fees at the time of my pet’s discharge or other demise.
