you can do it --front dew claws --if they have them on the back feet I get them two -I use a little blood stop powder and iodine they don't even know it

The answer depends on you...It saves money if you do it but if you are unsure..vet. The biggest problem i think is making sure you get all of the little bone of the claw..if not it may continue to grow and you didnt do any good.
Had a friend help me once...couldnt get the whole bone so it was off to the vet.
I had a litter of 6 born Sunday and had claws done by vet on Wednesday..wasnt too expensive and the pups get a good examination in the process.....$7.00 per pup for claws wasnt a bad deal.
Good Luck.

IMHO "YES" Vet trip.. But be Aware it is going to Cost MORE than if it was 3 to 5 days old All the blood vessels and Bone have had time to form..
3 to 5 days is best Forceps and some super glue..
Do a search on here for Dew Claw Removal some Excellent post on it at one time.

What is the purpose of removing front dew claws? I understand the back ones. Seems like all my dogs I've bought from other beaglers have their front dew claws. Is there a need to remove them or is it cosmetics?

if you run in a lot of snow --sometimes they will get tore up and bleed --it just saves a lot of problems and a good looking leg
