Class Action against vets who declaw. Did your vet explain the procedure? Did they lie about the procedure? Were you devastated once you found out? Was it a VCA Hospital in California?

Declawed Your Cat? Join a Class Action Suit

 

First class action lawsuit on behalf of declawed cats, against vets who lie or don’t fully disclose facts, fueled by Pro Bono Animal Advocate Team is pending!

Attention people, I have some very good news so please spread the word to your friends, families, and co-workers!

Please share this post and forward this link to anyone you know who was asked if they wanted to declaw their cats or who did declaw their cats.

An international group of Pro bono animal advocates is looking for people who had their cats declawed at VCA Hospitals, Banfield Hospitals, National Veterinary Assoc., Vetcor, any hospital chain, or even single private practitioners in the last 4 years and who want to participate in a class action lawsuit, based on the failure of these veterinarians to disclose the true facts, risks, and consequences of declawing and based on the inappropriate veterinary recommendation of declawing cats to protect human health.

Even if you think your cat doesn’t have any problems from the declaw, you still can join this class.

Please send the info to CatAtty@yahoo.com

In the email subject line please include this information:

Declawed cat: your state or province (Canada), your vet’s affiliations like AVMA, AAHA, AAFP, VCA, Banfield, etc.

(This information is usually readily available on the practice’s website or you can ask them and you can list all that apply).

In the body of the email, please include your name. (More information will be gathered if needed)

Include the cat’s name and birth date (approximate is fine). Your cat does not have to still be alive.

List the year the cat was declawed and the name and address and phone number of the declawing veterinarian.

If possible, it is highly recommended that you get your cat’s records from the vet before the vet realizes why you’re asking for the records. Ask for a copy of every page in the record including the surgery consent form that you signed.

This should be free and the vet should have to give them to you within a week of your asking.

Please add any comments about your experience at the hospital, including what the vet or the staff told you.

1. Were you informed before you paid for the declaw surgery that declawing was an amputation of your cat’s toe bones?

2. Were you told that it was just removing the nail?

3. Were you given the option for pain medications at an extra price?

4. What was the cost of the declaw?

5. Was another procedure like spay or neuter done at the same time? Was the declaw part of a “kitten package?”

6. Were you offered behavior consultation to try the multiple humane alternatives?

7. Did your vet talk you into declawing your cat?

8. Did your vet offer declawing at a discounted price because of a “special” or “coupon?”

9. Did your vet recommend declawing to protect your furnishings or the health of a person? Please describe this in the best detail you can.

10. Did your vet say that your cat will return to normal or be perfectly fine after the declaw heals up?

11. What method did your vet use to amputate the toes and claws? Guillotine method, laser, radiosurgery, or scalpel?

Thank you very much. They will be organizing the data and you will hear back from them via private email by mid November.

Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine-Do They Really Like Cats?

They promote Hill’s Science Diet which contains poisons so lethal the food itself has killed this rat, see photo above.

Rhoda Hogan left a sizable sum of money to go towards anti-declawing advocacy, they did nothing with her money, see this link.      Or google City the Kitty Rhoda Hogan.          http://www.citythekitty.com/rhoda-hogan/

Cornell Feline Health Center still declaws cats even though Dr. Camuti was highly against declawing. They use Dr. Camuti’s name for their Feline Consultant Program and beg for funds. Dr. Camuti is turning over in his grave. See photo above.

 

 

 

The Paw Project Removes Bone Pieces/Nail Growth Inside Lovey’s Four-Paw Declawed Paw Pads

This is Lovey from the Indianapolis area. She was declawed last year on all four feet due to concerns that she would scratch and cause infection in her elderly owner. She recently started biting and was taken to see her new non-declawing vet Dr. Hedges at Pleasant Paws Veterinary Care in Lebanon, IN. She found nails regrowing through the skin and knew that Lovey must be in pain. She was referred her to Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran (Paw Project IN Director) at the Cat Care Clinic for a paw evaluation and surgery.

Xrays showed very large bone fragments in all four feet along with back pain. Once the owner learned that declawing was amputating the toes she “felt sick” and wishes she “would have known about soft paws instead.”

Thanks to donations to the Paw Project (pawproject.org) she was able to have surgery to remove the bone left behind. Declawing cannot be undone and she still be left with 18 amputated toes however the surgery will reduce her discomfort in the long-term.

VCA Animal Hospitals Declaw Cats For The ‘Furniture’? And For Their Bank Accounts

Declawing is done by veterinarians for profit only. Why do you think it is banned in other civilized countries? The furniture will eventually be replaced, while the cat will suffer from each amputated p3 toe bone till death. Cats are digitigrade, they walk on their toes. When they are declawed, they walk on STUMPS, their p2 bones. Yet, declawing is STILL legal. Many declawed cats are dumped or re-homed because they start urinating and biting and have other health issues.

Declawed Cat Needed Re-Surgery By The Paw Project Team

This is Snow White and she is declawed on all four feet. She was relinquished to the Hancock County Humane Society in Indiana for reasons unknown but was taken to be examined by Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran (Paw Project Indiana State Director) at the Cat Care Clinic of Indianapolis. She was found to have quite a bit of pain in her feet along with bone fragments in her back feet. Luckily she as found a new home with a family committed to her success and comfort.
The fragments were removed this week and she is recovering well. Wish her luck!
