An Average Of 800+ Declawed Cats Are Unwanted/Dumped Since June 2016. Today is September 2016.

The American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association and American Association of Feline Practitioners  allow their veterinarians to amputate p3 claw knuckle bones on a once healthy cat who eventually ends up with biting, litter box, and other numerous post-declaw complications.

This figure comes from daily scanning of Facebook posts. There are other statistic’s  online done by shelters/rescues and compassionate vets who do not declaw that show a high percentage of declawed cats do not stay in the home,but, the above associations refuse to publish these because they want to continue to declaw cats as it is VERY PROFITABLE for them.

Declawed Cats Eventually Will Not Use The Litter Box

Behavioral problems
Scratching is a natural feline behavior that meets cat’s many needs. That’s why declawing has long-lasting effects on cats. Once their claws have been removed, they can no longer perform their natural stretching and kneading rituals. They become weaker as they age and may experience debilitating arthritis in their backs and shoulders.

Furthermore, cats without claws have lost their first line of defense, and because of this, can live in a state of stress. They cannot fight off other animals, or escape quickly from a dangerous situation. They may also become biters because they no longer can use their claws as a warning. Groomers, veterinarians, and people who care for declawed cats in shelters find many of them to be nervous, irritable, and difficult to handle.

Finally, declawed cats often stop using their litter boxes. They may associate the pain they feel in their paws when trying to cover their waste with the litter box itself. They seek a less painful place for elimination, such as the carpet or bathtub or even the bed or piles of laundry. Even though there are effective ways to modify a cat’s litter box behavior, it is a particularly difficult challenge because a declawed cat’s aversion results from pain.

AVMA President Declaws Cats

The AVMA does not want to change their policy and ban declawing nationwide because their docs cash in on claws big time. They should be ashamed of themselves for mutilating a once healthy cat for greed only.

See this DailyBeast news article about how greedy this association is.

POC-Epidemic Of Botched Declaw Operations

Epidemic of Botched Cat Declaw Operations
Posted on May 4, 2014 by Michael Broad avatar
On their Facebook page, the Paw Project – Utah provide the shocking results of a study they have recently completed into the proficiency of veterinarians carrying out declaw operations (technical term: onychectomy). Here are the results presented in an image which anyone is free to use. Please ask if you wish to use it as there is no right-click downloads on this website. Just leave a comment.
This is a hugely important piece of research. The importance cannot be overstressed.

Botched cat declaw operations study results
In words: there is a 66% failure rate on declaw surgery in respect of the cats checked. This isn’t 1-2 vets, they say – this is a 66% failure rate overall. The figures are too high to conclude that the problem of botched declaw operations concerns one or two vets. This is an epidemic! They say: please be patient and keep sharing. More shocking news to come…..

A thought: a person commented on the Utah Paw Project page. They asked whether we can automatically assume that where there are bone fragments in the paws of declawed cats that the cat feels pain or at least discomfort. I think that is a reasonably fair question to ask but common sense dictates that the answer must be Yes. Bone fragments are sharp and they are under the skin. What can one expect?

In any case, these are botched declaw operations because we know that when veterinarians declaw cats they remove the last phalange of the toes of the cat. This means that a length of bone at the end of the cat’s toe is removed at the point where that phalange of bone is connected to another length of bone. In which case an incision is made through tissue that connects the bones together. As I understand it, there is no need, therefore, for the veterinarian to cut through bone itself. This clearly indicates that veterinarians are being incredibly careless when they slice off the end of cat’s toes in declawing the cat.

Of course, in this post I am making no judgement about the morality of the operation itself (we all know it is a immoral). In this article we are simply looking at the skill of the veterinarians involved and on these results we have to conclude that there is very little skill evident. If there is skill is not being applied and in which case we have to conclude that the veterinarians involved are being incredibly careless as stated.

I have read on the Internet that veterinarians carry out the declawing of the 10 toes of a forepaws of a cat in around 15 or 20 mins. I would like a veterinarian to confirm this. For me, this supports what I stated that these “doctors” are being very, very careless and treating a cat’s toes as a vegetable that requires trimming! It’s as if they’re trimming the end of a runner bean when preparing dinner….

Declawed Cats-Once Loved-Then Betrayed FaceBook Page

Many declawed cats are being dumped, re-homed, euthanized, etc.

A declawed cat is a handicapped cat.  Cat parents will never give the REAL reason they are unwanted, who wants a kitty who poops and pees everywhere because their paws hurt?
