AMIGOS PET CLINIC
I, the undersigned owner, authorized agent of the owner or Good Samaritan responsible for seeking veterinary care for the pet identified above, certify that I am over eighteen years of age, and hereby consent to the examination of this pet by staff veterinarians at this veterinary practice. I also agree that after consultation with me, the hospital’s doctors may prescribe medication for, treatment, hospitalization, sedate, anesthetize and/or surgery on this animal. I understand that some risks always exist with anesthesia and/or surgery and that I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about those risks with the attending veterinarian before the procedure is initiated. Should some unexpected life-saving emergency care be required, and the attending veterinarian is unable to contact me, this practice’s staff has my permission to provide such treatment and I agree to pay for all related fees, I accept that veterinary medicine is an inexact science and that no guarantee of successful treatment has been made.
I understand that an estimate of the cost for veterinary services will be provided to me and that I am encouraged to discuss all fees attendant to such care before services are rendered and during this pet’s ongoing medical treatment. If this animal is hospitalized, I agree to pay the estimated fees and assume financial responsibility for the balance of all services rendered in cash, or credit card basis at the time the pet is discharged from the pet hospital. In the event the pet is hospitalized for more than twenty-four hours and the attending doctor is unable to reach me, I understand it is my responsibility to call the hospital at least every twenty-four hours to inquire as to the medical status of my pet and the fees incurred for medical services up to that day.
If my pet is hospitalized beyond the first day, 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 this facility is closed, I elect to pick up my pet and provide care at home, in which case I accept the risks involved. I further agree that either I, or an authorized agent of mine, will pick up this pet and pay for all accrued charges when the pet is released from the hospital. Such notice will be given at the address maintained on the hospital’s patient/client record. I agree that if I fail to comply with this policy, this practice may handle this abandonment in the best interest of the pet and the hospital, and I will be responsible for all fees incurred.
I authorized Amigos Pet Clinic to contact me by call, email or text message for the purpose of reminders and pet health information.
