In addition, our hospital is capable of providing a less painful surgical procedure for declawing using the CO2 laser. If you must resort to declawing your pet, our hospital can perform laser declaws using the CO2 laser which improves recovery times and decreases pain associated with the declaw procedure.
We recommend to all cat owners that are considering declawing their cat to take the decision seriously and seek alternate, less invasive options such as scratching posts/pads, frequent nail trimming, soft paws, feline pheromones, feliscratch or other environmental enrichment. Please see the attached document for alternative options.
If these alternative options are unsuccessful or declawing is required for medical reasons, we can offer CO2 laser declawing as a last resort.
Please note that if you elect to have your cat declawed, you must review & sign our Declawing Position Statement.
