Pain med right after the spay surgery?

Kauai was spayed today and the vet told me to start on the antibiotic and pain meds starting tomorrow, not tonight.

But since we've been home, Kauai has been crying and whimpering non-stop. She tends to be on the whiny side in general but I am debating whether to give her a pain pill tonight.

She has not eaten or drank anything since last night... I laid them out next to her bed but she's not showing any interest in food or water.

Should I give her pain med when her stomach is empty?

Thanks,
Annie

No, I would not give her any, I imagine the vet gave her a shot of pain meds before they sent her home, and you wouldn't want to overdose her!
Just give her lots of love and attention, she will feel better in a few days!

I agree , the vet said that for a reason.

Each vet does things different. Gabby was spayed 2 days ago and the vet gave us pain drops and told us to give them to her when we got home. He didn't give us any antibiotics though.
Gabby hurt that night and for a little while in the morning but since that time she has been fine. Hang in there, I know it's so hard to see your baby in pain.
