Pet Declawing Services
As pet owners ourselves, each Dr. Phillips Animal Hospital team member is dedicated to treating each patient as their very own. There’s no better example of our dedication than in the surgical procedures we offer like cat declawing.
Each patient is cared for and monitored through an assigned tech that has extensive expertise through the whole process. We use state of the art tracking equipment is used at the same time so that you can track vital parameters like pulse and blood pressure through the entire process.
Benefits Of Declawing Your Pet
The focus of our surgical procedures is to take away the nails in the front paws (rarely all four paws). Removing the nails in these paws can prevent your cat from scratching people or other pets. This procedure also stops damage to woodwork, furnishings, and carpets, along with marking behaviors.
The procedure involves the removal of every claw with the incision in each toe. The incisions are typically closed with dissolvable sutures. The paws are bandaged for the next 24 hours and drugs is given as needed to control any distress. Once the dressing is removed the very next day, your cat will probably be kept hospitalized to make certain strict cage rest and to enable us to track the paws.
