I know when apollo was neutered and my cat (roxie may) was spayed, they didn't eat for a while after the procedure. I think they were nauseous. They came around and ate when they were ready though.

hmm. I would call your vet just to give you peace of mind.

Zoe ate after all of her surgeries. (I mean like right after I brought her home. What a piglet. I had to feed her in small portions)

We brought Abby home the same day she was spayed around 4:30. The vet said no water until 9 p.m. & not to feed her until the morning. She was pretty sleepy that day anyway. She ate in the morning.

You can check with your vet so you can feel better about Lola.

I replied in your other post. You don't want to have her licking her incision. Can you call your vet & get an Elizabethan collar?

Sundance, unfortunately, has slept several nights in his Elizabethan collar thanks to his allergies. He managed to get comfy by sleeping on his side or with his head on his paws without any trouble. I'm sure Lola could, too.

Sounds like she had a bit of a tough time with the anesthesia, poor girl.

Zoe slept w/her e-collar in her large crate. She was fine.

Hope Lola feels better soon.

Try giving her a little boiled chicken and rice for her first meal, that is what our vet had us do after Kira was spayed bcs it is gentle on the tummy.

If you can't get an e-collar at short notice, or don't want her to sleep in it, you can try wrapping a sheet or towel around her abdomen where the incision is. Or you can make a temporary e-collar by cutting a hole in the bottom of a plastic bucket to fit around her neck.

You can also put a t-shirt on her until you can get a collar.
