Should you remove dogs dew claws?

Should you remove dogs dew claws?

Because front dewclaws serve an important purpose, they should not be removed unless there is a very good reason to do so. In rare cases, a dog's dewclaw may be severely injured or develop a disease (e.g., a cancerous tumor) and removal under those circumstances would certainly be in the dog's best interests.

Do Breeders remove dew claws?

Typically, dewclaws are removed by a breeder (or the breeder's veterinarian) at three to five days of age. When done at home, they are clipped off with scissors or nail clippers.
