Our question this week was:

My indoor cat is 6-years-old, is she too old to have her de-clawed?

Donna Isham


Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Donna. It is possible to declaw a 6-year-old cat but the older cats tend to have more pain and complications than kittens. We have a couple articles that talk about the pros and cons of declawing as well as alternatives to declawing.

Please read Declawing in Cats and Cat Scratching? A Guide to Declawing.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
