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. 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)

At Frontier Veterinary Hospital we prefer to perform ovariohysterectomy (OVH) surgery using laparoscopy as an adjunct to traditional surgical methods because it is less invasive. However, in some cases your veterinarian may change method during the course of surgery and perform your pet’s OVH in the traditional manner, without laparascopy. This is done at the surgeon’s discretion, in order to proceed with the surgical technique which is safest for the patient. If this becomes necessary, your veterinarian may need to call you post-operatively due to the time sensitive nature of anesthesia and surgery. 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.(Required)
