As the responsible owner or owner’s agent for the pet(s) being presented to this facility, and agreeing to abide in full by the above stated hospital policies, I hereby consent and authorize McClure Veterinary Clinic to receive, prescribe for, treat, or operate upon my pet(s). As a client of McClure Veterinary Clinic, I understand that the practice’s basic philosophy is to tell me what my pet needs to remain healthy and protected from disease. I also understand that I have the right to waive my pet’s rights to the level of care being offered by the veterinarian. I also understand that I assume the responsibility and liability that I place my pet into such action. I understand that McClure Veterinary Clinic is not staffed 24 hours daily. If my pet is hospitalized for overnight treatment with McClure Veterinary Clinic, and if intensive care or observation is warranted or advisable, the veterinarian will either perform these services, or in the event that she is unable to do so, your pet will be referred for the night to an emergency clinic that is fully staffed during that time. I authorize the doctor to provide vaccines and parasite control as needed for my hospitalized pet(s) at my expense (if required) in accordance with the above stated hospital policy. Should an emergency situation arise, I authorize the veterinarian to do whatever is necessary, including tranquilization as required. I understand that I assume complete financial responsibility for all services rendered, and that payment is due in full at the time of completion of services rendered, or upon release of the patient from our facility.
