Default upcoming surgery

So Vicky should have a surgery this Friday but my dad decided to do it tomorrow and we will remove the extra toe in her back right leg, the doctor said she should not eat or drink but he didn't say before the surgery for how long, my dad said for 6 hours but I am not sure if that's correct or not and its about 2am now here and I certainly can't call the vet so does anyone know the correct answer? Please just answer if you are sure else she might vomit while the surgery is being done :/

Wish her luck, hope she heals asap from it :/

I'm assuming that when you say they are removing her extra rear toe, you mean dew claw. We had our 6 month old boys rear dew claws removed about a month ago, and it was a pretty easy healing process.

I'd recommend getting a good elizabethan collar so she can't lick her feet, and also some Vetericyn spray which will help the incision heal faster. It can be tough at times, because if they want to run around, they can potentially open the incision very easily, so you have to keep them "laying low" for a couple days at least.

I would have to say at least 8 hours of no food or water.

Good luck!

This is a great opportunity to get the stuff you will need after the surgery. I'm still highly recommending that you get an Elizabethan collar, and Vetericyn spray.
