Dog After Surgery

My 17 lb. Lhasa Apso was neutered about 9 hours ago and he just seems to want to eat more than they said he would. Can I give him the food he wants or let him cry, bark, whine and continue making me feel guilty? I don't want him to get sick.

I would be inclined to give him his normal amount of food at the normal time. He probably missed a meal because of the surgery. I also think you could call your Vet and ask. Surely you get a free question. I would not feed more than normal because the digestion can be slow after anesthetic. As for the Vet saying he would not want to eat much....well, dogs are dogs.
