Is there an age limit to getting your dog's dew claws removed? I would like to do it for Scraps, as she will not stay still to have them trimmed and hers grow very fast, and I have read about dogs getting them stuck to carpet,etc and hurting themselves. She is almost 4. Also, what kind of pain medicine do they use? I don't want my baby to be hurting! I'm taking her in for a teeth cleaning soon, and they will put her under for that, so I thought maybe they could do it then.
