Hello, I'm Dr Mick. I'm sorry to hear that Jack is not feeling well. Sometimes the anesthesia or medications they use during surgery can cause some gastrointestinal upset. It would be a good idea to fast him for 12 hours, but he should have access to water. Then start feeding him 1/2 a cup of boiled chicken and rice every few hours. Make sure there is no bones or skin on the chicken. You can also add 1 tablespoon of canned pumpkin to his meals twice a day. The pumpkin will help soothe his intestines.
