When should I declaw my kitten?

When should I declaw my kitten?

Declawing kittens when they are young leads to smoother and quicker recoveries. We feel the best age for declawing is 10-12 weeks of age, but can be done up to 6 months of age. Your kitten will receive pain medication with their anesthesia as well as local anesthetic to each paw. Padded bandages will be placed for the first night of recovery. The morning after surgery, the bandages will be removed and your kitten will go home with pain relief medication that afternoon.
