11 Cause swelling , bleeding for days , cats have to relearn to walk, and declaw puts unnatural angle and double the pressure and pain.

Laser declawing is not much better. Whether it's done by laser or by scalpel, declawing is a painful procedure that removes the last joint of a cat's toes. The term "declawing," makes it sound gentler than it is. It really should be called digit amputation. There is no way to make this not be a painful surgery.

Besides the pain of the procedure itself, cats can suffer from complications long after they've healed. They may feel phantom pain in their missing toes, or develop neuromas, swelling on the nerves that were severed during the surgery. Also declawed cats often become moody and aggressive, and can turn to biting -- either because they're experiencing pain, or feel defenseless without claws, or both.

Ask your vet or research other ways to keep cats from clawing . Declaw cats use their fangs in replace of claws .

Also dogs scratch and dig too. So are you going to declaw your dog too?
