Ten years ago, your veterinarian might have encouraged you to declaw your new cat or kitten at the time of spay/neuter surgery. These days, our clinic will work hard to talk you out of it. Why the switch?
Come find out! Join our veterinarians, technicians, and behaviorist, and staff from the Humane Society of Jefferson County, for a discussion on Alternatives to Declawing.
- Medical and behavioral risks of declawing
- How to save your couch from your cat
- How to protect children from claws and teeth
- How to keep your curtains in one piece
- And dozens more ideas to manage and train appropriate scratching behavior, without risking your cat's health and long-term behavior
**This event is for people only!**
Instructor: Dr. Beth Wilder DVM, Veterinarian at Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic (LMVC); Sheila Mathwig CVT, Certified Veterinary Technician at LMVC; Danielle Bartz, Veterinary Assistant and Trainer at LMVC .
