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.
