Getting Spayed - Any dieitary precausions I need to take?

Currently Susie gets 1/2 RAW in the morning and kibble in the afternoon but after skimming an article on discontinuing her RMB until a week or so after surgery I thought I would ask here.

What things should I change in her diet while she is recovering from surgery?

Are there a few things I can give her to help speed her healing?

Any other suggestions would be welcome as well, thank you

i wouldnt quit raw unless something goes seriously wrong with the surgery. just fast the whole day before hand. i think they call for 12 hours but it wont hurt a single thing to fast for 24-36 hours before.
