At Baylis Animal Hospital we feel strongly that declawing can be done in the most humane way when performed in small kittens from 3-6 pounds of body weight (usually 3-6 months of age). When kittens become larger they have much higher risk of complications including personality change, chronic pain, excess bleeding and infection. We strongly discourage all owners NOT to pursue declaw in cats older than 1 year of age. When performed at the appropriate age, with a good combination of anesthesia, pain relief, and good surgical technique, indoor only kittens can do quite well with a declaw procedure.
