Q. Hi Doc. I’ve recently got a new puppy, a huntaway cross. I’ve named her “Star”. She is 4 months old, mad as a meat axe and has all four of those little dangly toes still present on the inside of her paws.

I’ve been told by a “dog expert” that they have to all come off, or I’ll risk her continually catching them against things and ripping them. This would be pretty painful I imagine, especially at the speeds she travels at. I want to do the right thing by her but is this really necessary and what would be involved? Mike. Kingsland.

Neutering Cats

Neutering male cats (Toms) vastly reduces the likelihood of some really undesirable behaviours. In some cases this means you have prevented your beautiful little kitten turning into a testosterone fuelled monster.
