SURGICAL/ANESTHETIC AND MEDICAL CONSENT FORM
The following procedures will be performed today:
Pre-Anesthetic Testing Because of our commitment to providing you with the highest quality of veterinary care, we require pre-anesthesia testing. Each surgical or anesthetic procedure has some risk involved. Advances in anesthesia have made routine procedures relatively safe, but occasional problems can occur due to pre-existing conditions not evident on physical examination. If there is any indication of an abnormality, we will either contact you before proceeding or take steps necessary to ensure the safe care of your pet.
