Four Paw Declawed Coco Has Large Bone Fragments And Will Need Surgery To Remove Them

The Paw Project – Texas is at The Feline Medical Center, Houston, TX

This is Coco, she is a 9 year old kitty declawed on ALL 4 feet and looking for a forever home. She is currently under the care and direction of Texas Special Needs Rescue with a foster. 
Lately her foster mom noticed she has become more grumpy and was unable/unwilling to jump so she brought this sweet girl to see Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran at the Feline Medical Center in Houston, TX.
The Xrays showed very large bone fragments in all 4 feet that will require surgery. She is going to require some intensive surgery and pain management over the next week. We will post updates on her recovery and if anyone has room in their home for this sweet girl please let us know!

JUST A SAMPLE OF THE MILLIONS OF CATS WHO ARE DECLAWED AND SHOWCASED ON SOCIAL MEDIA

INCLUDING OTHER DECLAWED ANIMALS. THERE ARE MANY MORE.  Veterinary clinics who perform this barbaric surgery ignore the excruciating pain they inflict on their victims, it’s all about the $$$ they make on claws, just look at their victims’ faces. Declawing causes pain, life-long pain. Cats are walking unnaturally now, without their much needed claw bones. See the studies, here is one.

PAIN AND ADVERSE BEHAVIOR IN DECLAWED CATS

 

LASER DECLAW IS MALPRACTICE-NOT APPROVED BY THE FDA AND NO PEER REVIEWED STUDIES ON HOW TO DECLAW A CAT

The 10,600 nm CO2 laser is cleared by the FDA for soft tissue procedures only.
The 10,600 nm CO2 laser is not cleared by the FDA for use on bone or in hard tissue procedures in the United States for humans. What makes this ok to use on our pets?
LINK THAT EXPLAINS CO2 LASER IS NOT FOR HARD TISSUE/BONE SURGERIES

 

LASER DECLAW COMPLICATIONS-STUDIES

Levy, et al. (1999), found that complications (bleeding, limping, swelling, infection) were generally worse in the laser onychectomy (declawing) group, compared against blade onychectomy in the first 2 days after surgery. Laser declawing can result in 4th Degree burns (burning of the bone). A study reported in the September 1, 2002 issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Association by Mison, et al., reported that lasers offered no benefit over the more conventional methods of declawing, stating “differences in discomfort and complications between groups treated via scalpel versus CO2 laser were not clinically relevant.”

Declawed Khloe Was Relinquished For ”Allergies”-She Has Severe Back Pain-Only Two Years Old

This is Khloe. She is around 2 years old, declawed, and was reportedly relinquished due to her human’s “allergies.” Texas Special Needs Pets took her on as a foster and noticed she was aggressive, mostly brought on by touching her back (video in comments). She was taken to The Feline Medical Center to see Paw Project Texas veterinarian, Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran for an evaluation.
Khloe required sedation for handling and close examination of her toes. No bone fragments were found on radiographs (Xray). A couple paw pads were misshapen and even under heavy sedation she exhibited signs of back pain.
She will need a new forever home, one willing to be patient with her as she takes time to rebuild trust. She may need pain management long term as well but luckily she is now with a foster who understands her and, finally, she is improving.

Declawed Gabby Was Living With Sores-Her Declawed Bones Were Growing Beneath Her Pads

Greater Moncton SPCA / SPA du Grand Moncton
May 7, 2015 ·
CAUTION GRAPHIC, but all to often a reality: This poor girl is around 12 years old and has been living with the consequences of declawing for almost that long. Gabby had been declawed presumably when she was spayed years ago. When she came in to our care at the GMSPCA it was noted she had sores and small pieces of nails growing on both front paws. This has undoubtedly been a source of pain for this poor, sweet cat for many years. After being assessed by our vet it was decided the only option was to put Gabby under anesthesia and explore the areas in question. It was found that ALL toes but one had been improperly declawed and a portion of the bone remained. This allowed the nails to partially regrow underneath the ski and erupt out through the skin…… The decision to declaw your cat should not be made without serious consideration as to what the consequences may be. This particular example shows an unacceptable technique that is hopefully not being employed by veterinarians since new techniques have emerged. There are many other complications that can arise including bleeding, swelling, nerve pain after surgery etc. The point of this story is to raise awareness on just how consequential declawing can be for cats. If you chose to declaw, after careful consideration, please choose a veterinarian willing to speak with you before the surgery and discuss what the procedure is actually about and what to expect post surgically. Proper pain control after the surgery is a must! Declawing is often a surgery for convenience for owners, but you owe it to your cat to provide them with the best possible care. Don’t be afraid to ask your vet questions about declawing and be informed before making this momentous decision for your cat. Gabby is expected to make a full recovery and should now live a pain free life. Don’t let Gabby’s story be your cat’s story. Thank you Dr Mavis Poirier for helping Gabby !!!!!
