I have put a deposit down on a 3 week old belgian malinois. Recently, the breeder had informed me that he had the puppies dew claws removed at around 3 days old. I am familiar with the breed, but I have never had a dog without dew claws nor have i noticed. I’ve read that this may or may not affect their health, but i’m wondering will it affect their health if it was done at such a young age? I’m not sure if i should continue through with this breeder or find another if it will directly cause health problems in the long run. I also read that it could cause muscle atrophy. Are there any certain benefits/ definite consequences? Thank you for any help!
