Declawing is not just the removal of the claw; it is a major surgery involving amputation. Declawing is rarely a medically necessary procedure. There are inherent risks and complications with any surgical procedure, including, but not limited to, anesthetic complications, side affects associated with analgesics, hemorrhage, infection and pain.
Scratching is a normal feline behavior. Cat's scratch to condition their claws by removing old nail sheaths, scent mark objects with the glands on their paws, visually mark objects by leaving shredded matter as evidence, stretch and exercise their forelegs, and enjoy a pleasant sensation.
They are great! They fit me in for an emergency appointment same day and are very professional in manner. Dr Rutledge was so gentle with our furbaby pitbull Kilo and the service was phenomenal. Within 20 minutes of blood being drawn we found out he had Lyme. The pricing was very reasonable. I highly recommend taking your pets to this vet. I'm beyond pleased and relieved. Thank you Cherry Ridge Vet.
