Hello!
I had my Sara declawed about 2 months ago. She was 8 months old at the time. I did it at the same time she was spayed... only one anesthesia that way.

They did it with a laser, and she seems to be fine today... now for one week after the surgery, I had to keep her in an elizabethan collar! We called her "cone-head" and she hated it! But it was easier to keep her from jumping on things, and it was also much easier to give her the pain meds we had to give her.

Also, it would make a scraping sound as she walked along the wall, and I could hear her... plus, she couldn't get under the couch and other hiding places to chew her incissions.

I'm very glad we had it done, although the recovery was hard for the first week...

We used Yesterday's News litter after, also. it is recycled news paper in pellets.

Best of luck to you!

Jacqueline
