I understand that the condition my pet has may include them having pain or anxiety and also authorize the Healing Paws Veterinary Care, Inc. staff and doctor to provide short-term pain or anxiety relief to my pet during their stay. At the end of the examination, if the doctor feels that further diagnostic testing is necessary, the tests may be performed during my pet's visit. With the results of those tests, I understand that the doctor will personalize a treatment recommendation for my pet and then will review those recommendations with myself or my representative. I understand that receiving diagnostic testing and treatments allows my pet to feel more comfortable as soon as possible and allows the doctor to evaluate their results and treatments so that I can receive the most accurate treatment recommendation plan. *
