Scratching or yanking at objects is a natural behavior and common for cats. It is instinctive in order to allow for new nail tissue growth and to remove dead nail fragments, but it can also be detrimental to your carpet, furniture, doors and your home in general. Declawing can be implemented at any age, but the younger the feline, the shorter the recovery time. At Animal Care Clinics, we utilize laser surgery, which reduces pain and swelling and minimizes bleeding. It also reduces the chance of infection and promotes a more speedy recovery with less post-operative pain. For these very important reasons, our patients and their owners prefer this type of process.
Declawing is an irreversible procedure and occurs while the patient is under general anesthesia. After the procedure, most cats return to their normal routine and will be back to scratching in no time, but this time without any damage to your home!

What happens before surgery?
Once you make an appointment, there are a few things to do before your pet’s surgery. Your doctor will go over all vaccinations that should be up to date, as well as any medications that need to be given or stopped. The night before a procedure you will want to take away any food or water, as well as make sure that your pet gets a good night’s sleep.
Will my pet be in pain during the surgery?
Some pet surgeries may call for anesthesia or local numbing, in which case your doctor will provide the appropriate medication to minimize any pain or discomfort. We will do everything we can to make sure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout any procedure.
What to watch for after surgery?
After surgery you will want your pet to get plenty of rest, and to keep a close eye out for any of the following symptoms:
- Odor coming from incision
- Excessive swelling or drainage
- No appetite 24 hours after procedure
- Vomiting or diarrhea
