Unless your vet has given you specific instructions, fasting guidelines prior to general anesthesia are as follows:
- Dogs & cats over 3 months of age, and over 2kg body weight, should be fasted for 8 hours prior to general anesthesia. (Fasted means no food.)
- Rabbits (+ puppies & kittens younger than 3 months of age or smaller than 2kg body weight) are exceptions. These patients should not be fasted.
- Water does not need to be withheld prior to admitting to the hospital.
