In the event that emergency treatment is required and I cannot be reached, I authorize Dr. Menks’ and Associates to perform such medical and surgical treatment as is necessary to preserve the life of my pet (the patient) until I can be contacted for further authorization. I understand that no guarantee of successful treatment is made or implied.
I agree to pay for services rendered at the time my pet is discharged from the hospital or when service is otherwise terminated.
I certify that I have read and fully understand this authorization for medical and/or surgical treatment, the reason why such medical and/or surgical treatment is considered necessary, as well as its advantages and possible complications, if any. I hereby release Dr. Menks’ and Associates from any and all claims, except claims for negligence arising out of or connected with the performance of their pet’s treatment.
