I am the legal owner, legally authorized agent for the owner, or a Good Samaritan responsible for seeking veterinary care for the animal described above, and I have the authority to execute this consent. I have declined any further care for the above pet and am hereby authorizing Companion Animal Hospital to euthanize the above listed pet.
I agree to have Companion Animal Hospital choose a euthanasia protocol at their sole and exclusive discretion. I further agree that I have had all my questions and concerns regarding this process, and alternative options, answered to my satisfaction prior to signing this consent.

After-Death Care Consent
It is my desire to provide for my pet decent and humane after-death care, complying with all legal requirements of the area. I authorize Companion Animal Hospital to take charge of my pet’s remains in accordance with hospital policy, releasing the staff from any and all liability for performing said after-death care. I understand that the after-death care may be performed off-site at a location belonging to an outside agent of Companion Animal Hospital’s choosing. When after-death care involves return of cremains, they will be available for pick up at Companion Animal Hospital within 2-3 weeks of the scheduled cremation. I agree that if I, or an authorized agent of mine, does not pick up cremains within 90 days of verbal or written notification of the readiness to be released, that Companion Animal Hospital may handle this abandonment in the best interests of the hospital and I will still be responsible for all fees incurred.
I attest, to the best of my knowledge, that the above listed pet has not been exposed to rabies, has not bitten anyone, and has not displayed any signs of neurologic disease or unusual attitude and/or aggression in the last 10 days.
