Laser declawing Vancouver WA is a more humane method:
The newest method for declawing cats is the laser declaw. In this method, the veterinarian uses a laser to make the incisions instead of a surgical blade. This method has many and significant advantages over the old guillotine method, which can be brutal and painful, and does not always heal well. The guillotine method is still in practice in some places because it is quick and easy for the veterinarian, even though it often takes a piece of the toe pad off, and often crushes the bone ends.
If it is necessary to declaw your cat, it is much more humane to have a laser declaw. There is much less bleeding and less pain. Less bleeding also means much less bruising and inflammation. Another reason to choose laser declawing is the effect the laser has on nerves. When it cuts a nerve, the laser’s heat numbs the nerves it cuts through and the nerve endings actually withdraw from the incision. This significantly minimizes pain during the procedure and post-operatively as well. The nerve endings take about 10-14 days to regrow to the ends of the toes. By that time most of the healing is complete.
There are some cases when cats are older or overweight that they may still require pain medication after a laser declawing, but most often it is not needed.
