    DefaultOne more pre neuter ??

    I was thinking about giving Frankie some boiled hamburger and rice tonight, as a precursor for post anesthesia upset stomach. Good idea or bad?

    Amy you could ask your vet what they recommend. I never even thought about that with my last pup. I just took her in, zip zap and brought her home when she was ready to go home.

    Billie came to me all fixed up so I am not much recent help with all of this. I'm sure Frankie the cutie pie will be ok though. I'll keep thinking good thoughts for him!

    Amy, it's not going to make any difference because his stomach will be empty when he has anesthesia. BUT, if it makes you feel better go ahead. Wishing you all well tomorrow.

    I don't think it would hurt him, if that's what you mean? Would just be a nice treat. The anesthesia they are using nowadays, has really advanced. Emma wasn't nauseated at all and the vet said most dogs don't get sick from it anymore.
    Hopefully, Frankie will do fine on it also. Sending lots of good thoughts your way tomorrow.

    I think I'll do it as a treat anyway.

    I didn't think you were suppose to feed anything before surgery but that may be the morning meal. If he can eat his evening meal then I would just feed his regular diet.
    Now that I think about it NOT feeding breakfast is pretty hard because they will think you have forgotten and when you still don't give them food they can't understand. Better to just get him in and under. He will still be a bit groggy when you pick him up.

    He can have dinner, just not breakfast in the morning.
