Dental Anesthesia Release Form – Optional Dental Radiographs

I hereby entrust Frontier Veterinary Hospital (FVH) to care for my pet during his/her surgery stay. I am the owner, or a representative of the owner, of the animal presented and have the authority to execute this consent. I have been advised as to the nature of the procedure to be performed and the risks involved. I understand the doctors and staff will use all reasonable precaution against the injury and/or death of my pet, and I hereby consent and authorize this hospital to perform the requested anesthesia and surgical procedures. In the event of unforeseen complications, I give permission to the doctors and staff to take reasonable measures in treating my pet and accept all charges that are incurred as a result of such action. I understand that I must furnish phone number(s) where FVH can reach me or a contact person whom I have authorized to make medical decisions.(Required)


Without dental x-rays, more than 50% of all dental problems in pets will go undiagnosed. For this reason, we recommend dental x-rays for all of our dental patients. Your veterinarian has likely discussed x-rays with you, and the cost has been listed on your estimate and is included in the high-end total. Please select how you would like us to proceed:(Required)


In pets, the teeth cannot be thoroughly studied until the pet is anesthetized. Once under anesthesia, we evaluate each individual tooth and the entire oral cavity for any problems that may need attention. Many pets need some form of additional dental surgery such as extractions. We realize that you may not have planned for these additional services. We must be able to reach you by phone if we find any issues in order to recommend a treatment plan and seek authorization to proceed (cost estimates will be provided). We will make every reasonable attempt to reach you prior to proceeding with any additional services. However, procedures requiring anesthesia are time-sensitive and provide a narrow window of time in which to reach you.(Required)

Blood testing is required within the last 2 months for pets 7 years or older, and within the last 6 months for pets under 7 years of age. I understand that blood work is an important aid in determining my pet's health, but does not guarantee a more successful surgery. *If bloodwork is not current, it will be required prior to surgery at an additional fee*(Required)


Standard pickup time is between 6-8pm due to the nature of hospital safety procedures and anesthesia recovery. Occasionally pets may be able to go home earlier, so please provide the earliest time you are able to pick up your pet and attend a 20 minute hospital discharge appointment:(Required)

Do you have Pet Insurance?(Required)

If yes, do you plan on submitting the final invoice for insurance reimbursement?

I understand that the safety of my pet is the overriding priority. I understand that any price quote I have been given is an estimate and if complications are involved, or the procedure is of greater dimensions than anticipated, the price may be higher. I understand that by signing below, I agree to pay for all charges incurred as such and will pay the balance in full upon discharge of my pet.(Required)
