Cat Laser Front Declaw Surgery, $150.00

img_9044People choose to have or not to have their cats declawed for a number of different reasons. We respect the choices people make and want people to make up their own minds to declaw or not declaw their cat. We believe that if a person is going to have a cat declawed, it is easier on everyone concerned to declaw the cat while it is young. Declawed cats should also permanently be indoor only cats.

A cat declaw is elective surgery and most cats will be wonderful house pets without declawing. There are alternatives to declawing. Most cats can be trained to use a scratching post, many owners are willing to trim the nails every 10 days or so and nail covers temporarily prevent scratching.

Some people are adamantly opposed to cat declaws and many cat owners insist that they have had many cats declawed over the years without problems. It is common for landlords or family members to require a cat to be declawed as a condition of living in a particular place. Sometimes when two families combine, compromises are required.

What is a Cat Declaw?Siamese cat.JPG

A cat's claw grows from the end of the last digit of each toe. A cat declaw is an operation where a veterinarian places a cat under general anesthesia and removes the claw and the last digit of each toe.

In our practice, a veterinarian uses a laser for this surgery. Using a laser reduces the swelling, the pain and promotes faster healing. The skin is closed with special adhesive and bandaged if necessary. The cat receives appropriate pain medicine after surgery and for several more days to keep the cat comfortable. The cat will spend the night with us and the next morning the veterinarian will examine the cat and evaluate each toe.

Considerations:

If you decide to declaw your cat, it is better to declaw a young cat. All surgery is potentially painful but young cats will recover faster with less pain. It is very rarely necessary to declaw all 4 paws.

Laser Surgery:

For our declaws, we only use laser surgery. Cats declawed with a laser recover faster with little or no bleeding, less swelling and pain than using any of the traditional methods.

Aftercare:

We will provide pain medicine for a few days after surgery. You will use Yesterday's News Litter which is newspaper processed to feel good to cats but does not cause infection. Your cat should heal within a month of surgery.

All clients receive a 24 hour phone number to call with questions or concerns. After surgery, we will see your pet without charge to check on complications or concerns related to the declaw.
