Caring for Your Dog After Surgery

Could I give my dog, that just got neutered, water in the same day?

You just got your dog picked up after being neutered and by the time you get him home, he can have a little water. He probably won't desire a lot as he'll still be a bit groggy. The time to not give dogs water is about 12 hours before the surgery.

I would add that, if in doubt, call the vet. He/she will know how soon and how much water to give your dog.

Good for you, getting your pet neutered, BTW. :-)

Your Veterinarian should have given you discharge instructions. If not, call them immediately.

The anesthesia can make dogs thirsty so make sure he has all the water he wants.
