Declawing and debarking are operations that some pet owners may consider for their pets. Serious consideration should be taken before you have these procedures done.
It would make for a perfect world if your cat did not scratch up all your furniture or your dog would not bark at all hours of the night. But as you know we do not live in a perfect world.
