    Anesthetic Risk:

    Your pet will be undergoing a procedure that requires sedation or anesthesia. There are risks involved with the use of any anesthetic agent, including, but not limited to prolonged recovery and death. In addition to the mandatory patient examination, having pre-anesthetic blood testing completed will help us to detect subclinical disease that may affect your pet’s ability to tolerate and recover from anesthesia. Having normal blood test results does not guarantee absence of risk, but being aware of any subclinical conditions may affect the decision to proceed or not and, if the decision is made to proceed, awareness of underlying conditions will allow us to tailor the anesthetic protocol to make the procedure as safe for your pet as possible.

    Recommended Pre-Anesthetic Testing for Your Pet:

    Pets under 1 year of age: CBC, Chem 10, Electrolytes - $95.75Pets 1-7 years of age: CBC, Chem 15, Electrolytes- $107.08Pets over 7 years of age: CBC, Chem 15, Electrolytes, T4 - $123.7

    Procedural Risk:

    While I accept that all procedures will be performed to the best of the abilities of the staff at ALL PAWS ANIMAL HOSPITAL, I understand that veterinary medicine is not an exact science and that no guarantee or warranty has been made regarding the results that may be achieved. Potential complications can occur with any anesthetic, surgical, or dental procedure. I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure(s) is/are initiated. My signature on this form indicates that any questions I have regarding the following issues have been answered to my satisfaction:

    • The reasonable medical and/or surgical treatment options for my pet
    • Sufficient details of the procedures to understand what will be performed
    • How fully my pet will recover and how long it will take
    • The most common and serious complications
    • The length and type of follow-up care and home restraint required
    • The estimate of the fees for all services
    • Any necessary payment arrangements

    For dental procedures, especially tooth extraction, additional complications might include fracture of the jaw, damage to the eye, and/or oronasal fistula formation.

    I understand that during the course of the operations or procedures, unforeseen conditions may arise that may necessitate the performance of life-saving measures.

    The hospital staff (initial one)HASDOES NOT HAVE permission to perform any necessary life-saving protocols and understand I am responsible for any additional costs that may be incurred. If cannot be reached or fail to select opt out above, I authorize ALL PAWS ANIMAL HOSPITAL to perform necessary services deemed fit by the Veterinarian.

    Hospitalization:

    In the event my pet is hospitalized beyond the first day at this facility, I understand that veterinary care during nighttime hours and/or weekends is provided at the discretion of the attending veterinarian. Continuous presence of personnel may not be provided during these hours. If I desire that my pet have supervision when the facility is closed, I elect to either provide care in my home or shall otherwise transfer my pet to a local emergency clinic where overnight veterinary supervision is available.

    Additional Care:

    In addition to the surgical procedure my pet is here for today, I would like the following services provided:

    Vaccinations:
