Times are definitely changing... slowly, but they are changing! There are still crap kibble brands out there, but there are also some really good ones. Some are even advertising on tv now that dogs don't need grains and shouldn't have them. The commercially prepared raw foods are also being advertised on tv. I think it's the older vets (like mine) who are set in their ways who will continue to be against raw foods, but the newer generation of vets I think are learning more about it and are more accepting. I think finding raw support from vets will be on the rise now that's for sure.

I can't help with the spaying stay, but Duke switches on and off the Wellness 95% meat cans easily for the food problem.

When my pug was spayed 10 yrs ago it was overnight. When my boxer was spayed in July I dropped her off at 8am and picked her up at 5pm.

As for food - what about that freeze dried stuff? Or home cooked? Will your vet feed her cooked chicken?

Personally, I think it's a good idea to keep them overnite. That way they can be watched by a vet. My vet has an apartment upstairs and he stays over on operating days. Sometimes, there can be alot of pain after spaying. My girls were always operated on in the morning and picked up late day, but, they were pretty uncomfortable. I felt so bad for them. Normally, after surgery, they don't want to eat anyway...

Sally wasn't in overnight, like others I dropped her off at 9am, picked her up at 5pm.
She was completely out of it when I got her home, she kept getting lost in the backyard when I would take her out to wee.
I was told not to feed her until the next day, but she didn't eat anything until the following evening, by her own choice.
I was glad we were with her during the night, she came out of the anaesthetic at about 4am and when crazy jumping and weeing... It would have been hard on her for this to happen when she wasn't at home and noone with her.
But I probably would have worried less about her if she had of been at the vet, but I was glad I had her at home.

all of our dogs were spayed and i always think its a good idea especially to avoid any unwanted pregnancies but that's just my opinion. the female dogs i had growing up had to stay overnight just because spaying is more invasive and if you have other dogs and bring her home you run the risk of them trying to play and a stitch could break and the more stress on her so in my situation it was better for the girls to stay overnight plus they were so groggy they would sleep all day anyway

what if you got a roll of the commercial raw would they cut her a slice and give it to her it might be a barf diet but its closest to raw you can get but still is a commercial food
