Can Dew Claws Be Torn Off?

Post by Swifty » Sun Apr 01, 2012 6:13 pm

Is it physically possible for a wolf to have it's dew claw ripped off? I already know it is very unlikely, but is it possible?

There are varying degrees of damage that can occur. It can happen to dogs, so I do not see why it would be impossible.

Could a dew claw be torn clean off?
