I'll tell you why since I worked for 2yrs as a vet tech. Females require an overnight stay bc it's more of a major surgery than altering a male. They want to make sure she has no problems after surgery bc some do and require prof attention. Most are still to out of it after surgery to go home anyway.

I wouldnt even mention her diet. Just state what you want and dont back down.
That is true BUT its easier to keep her quiet n confined at the clinic and a kennel tech is there the next morning by 6am. Also if she's having problems after surgery, the vet or the nurse come back around 10p to check on the surgeries that had problems.

Stella was just spayed few days ago. Dropped her off at 8am and picked up at 5: 30pm. She took it like a champ with no whining or throwing up or anything. No overnight stay needed

I doubt she'll end up eating anything anyway, Daisy's was done first thing in the morning and they told me to offer her food in the evening but not to worry if she wouldn't eat. I couldn't get anything into her until the next day.

Hopefully it's a moot point but I see you've gotten a great suggestion. Good Luck!

My vet wanted Dually to stay overnight for her spay but when I called to see how it went they said I could bring her home after 4. I picked her up she spent the rest of the night throwing up. She went back to vet in the am and my vet yelled at my fiancÚ for taking her home and not letting her stay overnight. He told her that when I called the desk people said she was ok to come home. Idk what is best I still believe she received too much Anastesia(sp?) and or she didn't handle it well. Good luck with Abby I'm sure whatever you do you will do it for her best interest and she will be fine

My pack of pups are all scheduled for spay/ neuter on Feb 1, 2013. I was originally going to get them done when they turned 6 months which for them is right now in November, but because I want them all to get the lab work done prior to surgery, I decided to hold off until spay / neuter month so that its more cost effective. I opted to do them all at once because it made sense to me that they'd all be recovering at the same time, hence in my mind easier to keep calm. Our vets generally go by the wait and see where keeping them over night is concerned. So we plan to bring them home but if one of them isn't doing as well as they'd like, they keep him or her.

Where feeding the night of surgery is concerned, my vet has always asked that we wait til the following morning to feed to avoid upset tummies and pulling of stitches / glue while straining if vomiting.

So if your mom still wants Abby to stay at the vets overnight, perhaps you could just pick her up early the next morning and then go straight to her usual raw. That way you aren't introducing the toxins to your precious little girl prior to her going through this surgery. If she's doing well on raw, I see no need to introduce her to kibble or canned food. Worse case scenario, you could always put her raw food in a blender and ground down the bone along with her meat and bring it in a Tupperware container. Still looks and smells like dog food and you aren't having to alter her diet. Just a thought.

No, she didn't get to much. A lot of dogs, like humans, just don't tolerate it at all. Also if she ate anything the night before it'll make her sick. I learned a lot while working at the vet. She'll be ok no worries.
