DeClawing Consent Form and Information

The MVMA Animal Welfare Committee has developed a consent form to share with any clients who may request this procedure. The hope is that owners may reconsider having this procedure done to their cat if they understand what is done and risks. The form will provide an understanding of the procedure and the possible risks to the pet, recommendations for the procedure as well as options to the procedure for clients to consider.
