  • Does the same fasting recommendations apply to all species?

    No! There is species variability between fasting guidelines pre-surgery. In comparison to dogs and cats, rabbits should never be starved before anaesthesia! Since University, I have always imagined rabbits as being like ‘miniature horses’ with respect to their gastrointestinal tract! It is important to encourage rabbits to eat as much as possible right until their surgery, to keep their gastrointestinal tract moving and to try to prevent gut stasis.

    Your Veterinary practice will guide you on fasting instructions for other species.

    You can help your vet deliver it when you prepare for routine checkups, know when there’s an emergency, and follow up after your pet gets care.

    Your vet may also want a stool sample. Call ahead and ask. If you have a bird or small animal like a hamster, you might not need to collect one: Chances are your pet will provide one on the way to the appointment or while you’re in the office.

    No one loves your pet as much as you do. Part of that love is making sure they get the best veterinary care possible.

    What to do after your pet’s appointment depends on their health. After a routine exam, you might only need to schedule the next checkup. If they have a health condition or has had an emergency, your vet can tell you what signs to watch for and when to call with any changes or symptoms. Your vet will also show you how to give any medications your pal needs. Make sure you return for any recommended follow-up appointments.

    If you’re worried about something, don’t be afraid to call and ask. The office staff can either tell you to come back in or give you some peace of mind.
