The Benefits of Laser Declawing Procedures
Laser declawing is growing in popularity. It’s important to know that the laser equipment is pricey. Most vets have to pay upwards of $40,000 for the laser machine, so the cost of the cat declawing is going to be higher. The surgery is safer however, so the added cost is often worthwhile.
During a laser surgery, a laser is used to sever the tendons and ligaments before removing the entire bone. There is no risk of the nail regrowing in the future.
Benefits to laser surgery for declawing a cat are numerous. First, the laser cauterizes the incision during each “cut” so there is no bleeding and no need for bandages after the surgery is complete. Swelling is minimal with a laser surgery.
Because the wound is cauterized, you don’t need to force your cat to acclimate to a different kitty litter during recovery. You won’t have to worry about finding puddles of cat urine on your floors.
Studies find that cats that have been declawed using lasers recover more quickly and seem to experience less pain. This is because the laser also seals the nerve endings during the procedure.
With Resco clipper and disarticulation methods, cats often require a week to heal and get back to their normal routines. Cats that have been declawed using a laser are usually up and about the very next day.
