Having requested such emergency procedures, I agree to be held responsible for a minimum resuscitation fee of $150.00 to pay for the services performed while staff members pursue treatment and try to reach me for further directions. Regardless of my pet's survival, I agree to pay this fee in addition to the other fees already identified by the practice and agreed upon by me.
I agree that if the Knightdale Animal Hospital staff is unable to reach me within 15 minutes after the initiation of CPR procedures, and after exercising reasonable medical judgment, a veterinarian determines that there appears to be virtually no hope for medical success, the future CPR procedures will cease.
I have been informed by Knightdale Animal Hospital and understand that despite the best efforts of the veterinarian and staff at Knightdale Animal Hospital, CPR may not save my pet's life. I also understand that even the most successful CPR that restores my pet's life may not allow my pet to regain his/her normal mental and physical health, and thus may leave him/her as invalid.
