I understand that I am encouraged to discuss any concerns I have about these risks with the attending doctor before the procedure(s) is/are initiated. I also understand that the veterinarian will perform a pre-anesthetic physical exam and that the staff will be monitoring my pet at all times while under anesthesia in order to minimize anesthetic risk. I realize that no guarantee can be made legally or ethically to me regarding the outcome of any procedure performed.
