If you do not know what a dew claw is, its a claw that on the upper side of the paw, and tends to get caught in things like carpets. When that happens it can tear the claw for a really painful injury. Since they serve no particular advantage to the dog, most breeders choose to remove them. This has to be done between 3-5 days while there is still no bone in the toe.

Dixie has a hard time with these visits because strange people touch her puppies and then take them away for several minutes. So we try to distract her by taking her outside while the procedure is being done.
|Look! Dixie's waste line is back! Lucky girl!|
