Default Re: dew claws

Sadie comes from the finest puppy mill stock, and has her dew claws. Bebe came from a show breeder and her's were removed at some point.
Back when we were doing our greyhound thing, some of them had them and some didn't. Someone told me it depended on the dog's form. On some dogs the dew claws would cut the outsides of the ankles (rear legs) as they ran. Then they would remove them.

A lot of breeders will remove them since it's an easy snip-snip when they're young. Our breeder didn't and it cost us an extra $200-$300 to have them removed at the same time he was neutered. Which also made the healing take longer and he had to wear a cone for 2 weeks.

I asked our vet about having Sadie's removed when she was spayed at age 4. She said it would be like a human being having their thumbs surgically removed. She didn't recommend it for an adult dog. If they do it when they are newborn it is easier on them.

Brien it costs $6 per pup if it is done shortly after birth. Pathetic isn't it?

from what I have read about dew claws most show breeders will remove these claws knowing what will happen If they are not removed. & as a puppy they are nothing mote than skin on the paw so it does not hurt to have them removed georgia had her's removed

Hmmm...Snoop doesn't have rear but has front... Any reason to remove rear and not front...wonder if lends any clue to what type of previous owner he had or about the breeder if in fact he ever came from one

If there is nothing medically wrong with t then leave it alone. They should never be removed unless a medical issue.
Surgery can seriously hinder the body's ability to recover Dr. Dobias Healing Solutions
If you are a dog or cat owner, I urge you to think twice before you get an unnecessary surgery done. Not only it results in unnecessary suffering but every chinese medicine practitioner will tell you that removing body parts has dear consequences. Plus, how would you feel if someone cut off your ears? One of the most brutal surgeries that should be outlawed is ear cropping and declawing in cats. However even tail docking or dewclaw removal can cause problems. Did you know that the removal of the foreleg dewclaws in dogs also removes a very important acupuncture point that is connected to the function of the immune system?
