How long is vomiting normal after a spay/dental for a new hound?

 

It's been less than 24 hours but she's won't eat or take a pain pill. I don't think she's drinking water either.

How many times has she vomited? What is she bringing up? Does she have a temp?

 

If she's vomiting (or trying to vomit) repeatedly, she needs to see a vet ASAP.

I agree with Batmom here. Vomiting is not a good thing, since it's causeing her stomach to retract and which is going to be putting a fair amount of movement on her spay area.

 

Not taking her pain pill, not eating and not drinking isn't all that unusual within 24hrs of a spay. The sedation seems to take more out of some dogs than others.

 

More than likely she will start to want a drink, then the desire for food will come next.

She hasn't pulled her stitches or anything.. I don't think she's retching that badly.. Her foster mom said she threw up last night and once a little this morning. She IS drinking now and relaxing. I told her foster mom that if, today, she ever feels uncomfortable with her that she can take her to the nearest E-vet.

 

We've had dogs vomit the first night (heck, I puke with anesthetic) but never the next day, but she was spayed pretty late in the day yesterday because of an emergency at the vet.

If there is no more vomiting today and as long as she is drinking, her appetite should return soon. Give her little bits of kibble (watered down) at a time. We've had fosters who took a few days before they would eat an entire meal after their spay.. some take a little longer than others to recoup. But yes, take her back to the vet if she is still vomiting today.

Vomiting a few times after spay or neuter is normal. The appetite will return once the anaesthetic and pain subsides.. usually in a couple of days :)
