Procedures requiring anesthesia always carry a degree of risk, whether
the patient is a person or a cat, including the fact that the use of anesthesia
as part of the procedure may cause injury or death to my cat. The likelihood
of anesthetic complication is extremely low, and in most cases, anesthetic
complications are manageable and not life threatening.
I authorize Cat Hospital of Chicago to perform the surgical procedure(s)
as described above. The nature of such services has been described to me
to my satisfaction and I realize that no guarantee nor warranty can ethically
or professionally be made regarding the results or cure. I also authorize
the hospital staff in an emergency situation to follow through with such
procedures as are necessary for the well-being of my cat on a continuing
basis until further communication with me. I understand that I assume financial
responsibility for all services rendered.
