Would that include RMBs - chicken wings, turkey necks etc? And what about raw sardines? Pereg had two of those but as she had her SAMe tablet first thing this morning she could have her first meal at the normal time.

Prob not much help but when at work are patients are starved for 6 hours before a operation to make sure they have a empty stomach. When the dogs have been vets they have usually been starved for more but that prob down to the fact we as owners handle the food

I believe if I remember correctly from having read my book it takes 8-9 hours for a dogs stomach to empty though it may very from each individual as well you know no dog is the same.

It can take up to 60 hours for a human stomach to empty because of things like carrots and other types veg take some time pass through thats why when you vomit you almost all ways gets pea's or carrots
