The removal of toes, tails, and even limbs in, dogs and cats is usually performed in times of extreme trauma or the presence of cancer. Although amputation is often unfortunate and undesirable, it can prove very effective in improving your pet’s condition when other measures have failed or are impractical, and your pet is otherwise suffering from the condition.
Tail injuries can also be caused by excessive self-inflicted trauma such as wagging into walls or biting and licking the tail compulsively.
The removal of a diseased eye that is causing pain is called enucleation, and is likewise performed in cases of severe trauma to the eye, glaucoma, or cancer.
Suffolk Veterinary Group no longer performs elective feline de-claw procedures, and does not perform elective ear cropping in dogs or cats. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.

I want to thank Dr. Winkler and his staff. They are the most compassionate animal care center ever. And when we recently had to put our kitty down, no where else will you receive the compassion they show. God bless them for their kindness and caring hearts.
