BLAND DIET and TEMPTING YOUR PET TO EAT by Dr. Katie Marrie, DVM

Some of our patients may experience a mild upset stomach after their spay & neuter surgeries. This occurs for a variety of reasons including stress, anesthesia, or a reaction to their pain medicine.  When your pet is experiencing an upset stomach he/she may not feel like eating, but it is extremely important to encourage him/her to eat.  You should never let your pet go more than 24 hours without eating.  If your pet is refusing to eat or experiencing an upset stomach and vomiting, cease pain medication and follow these simple instructions to tempt them to eat a bland diet to get them back on track.  If your pet is not eating and it has been 24 hours, please call us at (310)574-5555 or (562)225-6864 after-hours and/or bring your pet in to see our veterinarian.

Younger animals heal quicker and have fewer complications (plus, the surgery is WAY easier on the surgeon too!). The following will break down the benefits for each species and gender. A good thing to remember if you live in Los Angeles: YOU MUST spay and neuter your dog or cat if it is over four months of age – it is the law! Violations are subject to high fines and after the third fine violation, non-compliance is a misdemeanor charge.
