Our expert says:
The anaesthetic drug you referred to is probably called propofol. This is an ultrasafe very effective anaesthetic drug, that we use every day. It has revolutionised anaesthesia in that patience wakeup very quickly. Unfortunately, and occasional patient may be nauseous following anaesthesia. This is very uncommon though.
Round, I suggest you mention this to your vet and maybe ask them to use an antinausea drug following anaesthesia. Also make sure that she drinks and passes urine within the first 24 hours following the anaesthetic. The fact that your vet uses this particular drug should be seen as a plus point.
