How Soon Can You Declaw A Kitten?

“We are glad to hear that you have an interest in companion animals. Declawing is a painful procedure that should only be done by veterinarians under anesthesia, usually on older cats or those who pose a danger to other animals or people. A home-grown declaw may sound like the answer for your situation, but we ask that you consider all of the facts before making any decisions about this topic and please consult with your veterinarian first. We also recommend visiting our website: www.avecvetcarersocietyofindiana.org/declawingkitten so you can read more information on this subject and learn more about what has been found out through research related to exotics such as these special needs babies!”
