For the doctors and staff of Oates Veterinary Clinic Inc. Kenton, Ohio

I am the owner or agent for the above-described animal and have the authority to execute the consent and authorization of the following procedure/care:

I understand that during the performance of the procedure(s) for the above situation(s) unforeseen conditions may be revealed that necessitates an extension of the foregoing procedures, or even different procedures, that those set forth previously. I hereby consent and authorize the performance of such procedures as necessary and desirable in the exercise of the veterinarian's professional judgment. I have been advised of the nature of services and procedures, as well as the risks involved, and I also realize that results cannot be guaranteed.

I additionally authorize the use of appropriate anesthetics and the administration of other medicine and understand that hospital staff will be utilized as deemed necessary by the veterinarian. I have read and understood this authorization and consent form.

The following services are offered as best practice procedures because our doctors feel they offer our clients' pets the best medical care for their well-being. If you state that you will leave it up to the doctor to decide, IT WILL BE DONE. If you do not wish to have these procedures used for your pet while it is in our care, you MUST sign the waiver to decline services.


Having your pet on IV fluids while it is under anesthesia can help your pet's body processes to remain stable during that time. We offer IV fluids with an anesthetic for the cost of $60.00. This will only be administered during the procedure and will not be something that will stay on the pet during recovery. In certain cases, the doctors may require the IV fluids.

Unless the doctor has required your pet to be on IV fluids during the procedure, this is an option available to all pets who will be undergoing an anesthetic procedure.


Every animal undergoing anesthesia/surgery needs to be screened for internal problems not readily evident by physical exam.

At a minimum these include drawing a single blood sample to evaluate the liver, kidneys, glucose levels, and screen for anemia prior to the anesthetic, to ensure your pet's ability to undergo anesthesia. The cost for these tests is $75.00 and will be done unless specifically waived by your signature below.

If you do not wish to have any screening tests, and wish to waive these procedures, please indicate with your signature below.
