Fasting Your Pet
Fasting your pet means that there will be no food in your pet’s stomach during their anaesthetic, reducing the risk of serious complication. Having food in your pet’s stomach may cause them to vomit whilst under anaesthetic and as their swallowing reflex is diminished this can cause them to aspirate (inhale) vomit into their lungs.
