I hereby authorize The Cat Doctor of Monroe and Dr. Kimberly Scutchfield to perform care for my pet. I acknowledge that I am the owner/appointed caregiver of the animal described above and am legally able to consent to care for my pet. I understand that any procedure poses a risk to my pet regardless of health status. In the event of unforeseen complications, I give permission for 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 further authorize The Cat Doctor of Monroe and staff to release my pet's medical records to another veterinary provider if requested by another veterinary provider.
I understand staff will contact me after they have examined my cat to discuss recommended diagnostics and treatment and will provide an initial estimate of charges. I can be reached at
If I cannot be reached at this number, I authorize initial diagnostics - including radiographs and blood work if indicated for my cat. Further, if I cannot be reached, I authorize initial treatment - including fluid support and other supportive medications as indicated for my cat. If I cannot be reached, I authorize sedation if needed for treatment either due to the nature of the problem or my cat’s aggression. I understand that sedation and anesthesia pose a risk to my pet, regardless of health status. If my cat is dropped off, I understand my cat will be treated for fleas if evidence of infestation is found today and I will be responsible for that cost.
I understand payment is due when my cat is discharged, however, a deposit may be required after an estimate is prepared and discussed. I accept financial responsibility for charges incurred for my cat.
