Surgery Consent Form

Your pet’s safety and comfort are our main concern at Bel-Aire Veterinary Hospital. Before your pet has surgery today, he/she will be examined for any problems that could interfere with anesthesia and will be monitored during recovery to help ensure that all goes well. We are proud to report that our patients do very well and we expect his/her surgery to go smoothly.

Procedures requiring anesthesia are always associated with a certain amount of risk, whether the patient is a person or a pet. Like you, we want to minimize that risk as much as possible. This requires a physical evaluation and pre-anesthetic testing. General anesthesia has become safer in recent years with the advent of newer drugs and better patient monitoring. Some conditions may not, however, be evident on a physical exam. To better ensure your pet’s safety during anesthesia, we advise the following pre-anesthetic tests be performed, even for elective procedures such as a spay, declaw, and castration. Sometimes we adjust the anesthesia used or alter the procedure to make it safer for your pet. Occasionally, we postpone the surgery until a medical problem has been resolved.

CPR/DNR Consent

Bel-Aire Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing patients with the care that considers the quality as well as the quantity of a pet’s life. For patients experiencing advanced disease, advanced age, multiple disease processes, or a disease considered to be terminal, it is appropriate to decide in advance whether aggressive measures of resuscitation (CPR) will be employed if needed. DNR means “do not resuscitate”. This is a decision that resuscitation (CPR) is not to be performed if the pet stops breathing, has no heartbeat, collapses, or becomes unconscious. Resuscitation (CPR) of a collapsed or unconscious patient is tailored to meet the needs of the individual pet but may include any or all of the following:
  • Establishing an airway via insertion of an endotracheal tube and administration of oxygen or medications through the tube
  • Establishing intravenous access via insertion of an intravenous catheter and administration of fluids and injectable medications through the catheter
  • Chest compressions
  • Intracardiac delivery of injectable medications
Animals that have survived cardiopulmonary arrest and have been successfully resuscitated (CPR) are extremely critical and unstable. Management of the post-arrest patient requires vigilant monitoring and the technical expertise of dedicated critical care personnel. This care is costly, and the outcome is uncertain.
