I realize that must be discharged during office hours. The fee due will be paid in full at that time, unless other arrangements are made with the doctor. In many cases, it is impossible to determine in advance the extent of medical or surgical treatment required, but in such cases an effort will be made to estimate treatment costs. It is understood that the actual cost may exceed this estimate. If I cannot be reached via telephone numbers listed, I authorize initial diagnostics (including radiographs, sedation, and/or bloodwork) when deemed necessary by the doctor overseeing my pet’s case.
