We are happy to have this much less painful alternative for front nail removal available at Animal Haven Clinic. This particular surgery shouldn’t be done to all cats. It should be a last resort and these cats should then be strict indoor pets for their own safety.

Declawing is essentially the removal of one of the bones in the digit so pain medication, anti-inflammatories and numbing blocks are a must. Laser technology also makes it faster, with less bleeding and more precise. The cats whom seem to have the least problems with this surgery is the younger kittens. While this surgery can be done its seems to have a little longer recovery period for cats over 1-2 years.
