While I accept that all procedures will be performed to the best of the abilities of the staff at this hospital, I understand that no guarantee or warranty has been made regarding the results that may be achieved.
I also assume full responsibility for any additional expenses incurred after the surgical procedure is performed, such as follow-up radiographs, re-check physical exams, and additional surgery due to post-op complications. These are more likely to occur when there is a failure to comply with the aftercare instructions.
A complete physical exam will be performed on your pet prior to the surgical procedure if it has been longer than 30 days since the last exam. However, this may not identify all systemic or metabolic problems. For this reason, your pet will have a pre-anesthetic blood panel to evaluate major organ functions prior to anesthesia.
