At The Pet Clinic of Urbana, our top priority is providing the highest-quality of veterinary care to each pet we treat. Every policy and medical procedure supported by our practice has been put in place with the health and wellness of pets in mind.

Our veterinarians perform a surgical onychectomy if they believe that a cat cannot be trained to refrain from using its claws destructively in the home, or poses a danger to family members. Unfortunately, all cats are not amenable to behavior modification and we believe that this surgical procedure will result in fewer cats being abandoned or euthanized. After your cat is declawed, it is recommended that your he/she live indoors since the ability to defend itself is compromised.

We also believe feline onychectomy should be performed only with the use of medically appropriate anesthetics and analgesics and adherence to careful surgical and post-surgical protocols. We use several monitoring devices during your pet’s anesthetic procedure, including continuous monitoring by a registered veterinary technician. Because your pet's safety and comfort are our primary concerns we use advanced pain management techniques in conjunction with inhaled sevoflurane gas anesthesia. 

We use a combination of injectable and topical pain management depending on the size and age of the patient.  Our declaw patients stay with us overnight so that we can be sure they are comfortable when they go home the next day. 

New patients receive 15% OFF first exam.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
    Maya Smith / Los Angeles, CA
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the care my pet received from Dr. Anderson."
    John Doe / San Diego, CA
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
    Tara Brown / Kansas City, MO
