Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] question regarding fasting before

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post to the group. I'm Kim and I run KiSta
Ferret Shelter in NJ.

My vet has actually told me, for surgeries where he is using
Isoflourane (which so far has been all of them), that my
ferrets do not need to be fasted, as Iso doesn't make them
nauseous. I stopped fasting them about 2 years ago, and
thankfully have not had any problems with vomiting or any
other after or side effects.
