I'm looking for some advice: Our vet is recommending that when he has our Penny in for her operation to be spayed that he remove her dew claws just on her back legs and also her anal glands. She is only 4 months old and he cleaned her glands a few days ago at her appointment. He said that an awful lot came out for her being so young and we'll likely have issues in the future. He said they serve no real purpose anymore and that its ok to remove them. He also said he'd like to remove her dew claws just on her back legs as they can get caught on things and cause her discomfort. He feels doing it all at once will be easier on her than taking her in multiple times. Has anyone ever heard of either of theses things? What are your thoughts? We want to be sure we do the right thing for her. thank you.
