Had to have my cats declawed due to moving into a household with family member on blood thinners and another rescue cat that had previously been declawed. Chose AMS because of their use of laser surgery. Very pleased with the quality of care my fur babies received. Both cats seem to be healing quite nicely and experiencing minimal pain, as I have not seen them limp, lick, or bleed. If you must declaw your cat, I highly recommend the Dr. Butler's expertise with the laser surgery method.
