Many pet owners choose laser declawing for their cat because it can solve many common household behavioral problems. One of the most frustrating can be unwelcomed scratching. When the scratching post doesn’t get used but the legs of the antique sofa do, many pet parents look to laser declawing for help.

The reasons for declawing a cat range from keeping children safe to protecting furniture. Cats can be unpredictable and training a cat is not always possible. For many, the decision to declaw their cat comes down to whether or not they can live with a cat whose scratching cannot be controlled. It can be a matter of whether the cat stays in the house or must have another home found for her. For owners who see their cat as family and cannot even fathom the idea of having to give her up, laser declawing is an option that can definitely be considered.

Before you opt for any procedure for your pet, it’s always best to do your research and talk to your veterinarian. Knowing what to expect and any possible outcomes is key. There are even laser declawing alternatives available.
