All declaws MUST come in for a consultation before booking for surgery, no exceptions.
Concerned about declawing? So are we! But if your are considering relinquishing your cat or even euthanasia because of their unacceptable destructive scratching, please don’t – we assure you if you have tried different scratching posts, trimming their nails, SoftPaws, etc, etc, that declawing is a much better alternative than living without your beloved kitty.
Did you know… that declawing can now be performed with a laser? Lasers cut tissue with a beam of light, which seals the nerve endings so there is very little pain when they wake up. Lasers also seal blood vessels as they cut so there is usually no need for bandaging after surgery. Although it doesn’t change the fact that it is still a amputation of the last toe.
Since there are no bandages your furry friend can be up to normal speed the next day and… without leaving his usual trade “marks” on your furniture and skin! All cats, young and old, big or small can have a laser declaw.
A front declaw is usually all that is needed. The rear claws cause fewer problems in the household and are helpful for the cat to defend himself should he become an outdoor cat or accidentally escape. YES if you have small children or insist that all 4 need to be done we will help you.
What is the cost for Laser Declawing? Yes it does cost a little more but it’s worth it. Properly done, a declaw will provide the cat with a lifetime of comfort and allow him to be an inside pet without causing all the damage. Consider having your pet declawed at the time of spaying or neutering. It is not only more cost effective for you but it is less stressful and healthier for your pet when done at a young age.
