Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran of Paw Project Indiana Removes Sharp Bone Fragments From Declawed Steve Cat

This is Steve from the Johnson County (Indiana) Animal Shelter. He was taken to see Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran (Paw Project IN State Director) at the Cat Care Clinic of Indianapolis for a paw evaluation. He was relinquished to the the shelter for not using the litter box. The staff also noticed him holding up one paw frequently.

After examination and Xrays large bone fragments were found. Once the fur was shaved away from his toes an open sore was also found where the sharp bone left behind was poking through. Thanks to the Paw Project he received corrective surgery today and is resting comfortably. Wish him luck in his recovery!
