Thanks, we've always spayed/neutered and never once had a problem with it. I realize new science is out and everything, but I personally feel it is new science and I'm not completely sold on it just yet. I'm the researcher in the family so I'm educating my parents along the way, or in this case we're learning together. That's not to say I/we never will be, but we're reading up on it. Plus the contact we signed for her requires she's spayed by the time she's a year old. Since we've had no issues in the past we're comfortable going this route.

It's not so much that our vet will lecture. They're great people. I've been going there since I was 6 years old with our pets (I'm now 32). They've always been great. They're just old school and support the crap kibble foods (Science Diet, Royal Canin, and I noticed last time I was there they have Purina now too). I just know they won't approve of raw. I'm hoping when I bring Logan they rave about how healthy he looks and if they do ask what he's eating I will tell them then he's on raw. We'll see what happens.

I just called the vets office again. They do not have someone there overnight, but they will not leave if there's an animal in distress or in questionable condition. She said that it's basically up to the vet on if they can discharge or not. They prefer to keep them overnight just so they'll be quiet and calm overnight. She said that if they're going to be more stressed out there then they'll release them too. It's something we can discuss more in depth when we drop her off.

I mentioned all this to my mother and she actually prefers that she stay at the vets overnight. She's concerned about her and Logan being too anxious and wanting to play that night. I don't see Abby wanting to play, but I can see Logan trying too. I told her we can keep them seperated to be safe, but she still prefers to keep her there to keep her calm. We have until January so I'm going to try to work on this one. In the end it's her decision.

I think I figured out the food part of this issue too. When it gets closer I might pick up a couple of cans of wet dog food and give her a few tastes as a treat to see if she'll eat it. If she does we'll send some of that along with her. I think I'd rather feed that than kibble, even temporarily. We'll keep going with all raw until then.

I'm sure everything will work out ok... I hate leaving my dogs overnight at the vet i'd rather have them home in the comfort of there own beds watching over them.
Mind you i've never had a Female Spayed just 2 males neutered so keeping the dogs separate would have to be watched thats for sure. No playtime for them like usual... I will experience your same situation in the future so i'll talk to my vet when the time comes.. i'm sure he'll be ok with the Raw feeding as i go to a Holistic Vet they seem really good!!

I also Like Kari's Idea

No lectures on spaying here. All of my fur babies have been spayed & Murphy will once she is old enough. The vet here has us drop them off between 7:30 & 8am. Then they call after surgery & your pet awakes up. Then we pick them up between 5 & 6pm. Pheona was calm the first night & the next day she was back to being her normal self. I wish you the best.

Penny was required to be there the night before, bc they start their surgeries at like 4 am, no way are people gonna wake up that early to drop off a pup.

Not sure what to tell you about food, maybe do half and half for now since she's still fairly new to raw. Will she be staying there the night before surgery, or the night after she has surgery?

Hmmm... My parents and I have only had females(until Horatio) and I have never heard of them keeping the dog overnight? My Keenyah went in at 8:30 am and I picked her up at 4pm. She was just fine. Maybe you could just say you don't want her fed that day and you'll worry about feeding her when you bring her home? That way you can avoid any food things all together? Or just bring raw and tell them to save the lecture.
