Food and Water
Dividing your pet's first meal in half decreases the risk of nausea and vomiting right after their procedure.
If your pet is not interested in their food within 24 hours of having their procedure done at Brook Farm Veterinary Center, please contact us immediately at (845) 878-4833.
Seek immediate veterinary care if your pet:
- Has excessive bleeding from the mouth
- Seems agitated or uncomfortable for more than 2 hours
- Has difficulty breathing
- Begins squinting their eyes for more than 1 hour at a time
- Develops any wounds on their body
- Refuses to eat or drink for more than 12 hours
- Does not defecate for more than 48 hours
- Has diarrhea for more than 12 hours
- Vomits more than three times in 12 hours
- Begins bumping into objects
- Has difficulty walking or jumping
Your pet should not be restricted from having water, as it's important they stay hydrated to ensure a healthy and speedy recovery. If you happen to notice your pet becoming dehydrated be sure to call us immediately to be seen by one of our highly skilled veterinary professionals.
