What is consent to Stabilize/Treat?
If your pet is deemed to be in critical condition minutes matter, and indeed, may make the difference between life and death for your pet. We include this stipulation as an emergency hospital because we would like to perform life saving treatments and diagnostics to direct said treatments if finances and owner concern about the details of treatment are of no contest up to the points described above. The DVM on staff can do their best to stabilize your pet prior to having a conversation about many objectives, including: medical rule outs, odds of survival and specific treatment plans, long term survival rates, plan going forward assuming the survival of this critical situation. If you decline consent to stabilize/treat, delays will ensue to establish how we can diagnose and treat your pet with your consent. You will only be charged for services that are PERFORMED and deemed NECESSARY by the attending veterinarian to attempt to save the life of your pet.
