At Burnhamthorpe Animal Hospital, we provide elective and therapeutic surgery including but not limited to:
- Canine dewclaw removal
- Deciduous tooth extraction
- Hernia repairs
- Feline Declawing & more!
Declawing is certainly a controversial issue among pet owners and there are many pros and cons to the procedure. We certainly encourage trying all options and training methods possible before deciding to declaw your cat. The unfortunate reality is that indoor cats in many households cause a lot of damage to belongings and furniture in the home. Sadly, many of these cats end up in shelters, homeless or are euthanized.
