Paw Project-Removes Bone Pieces On All 18 Toes-Neptune Was Not Using The Litter Box-Relinquished

Neptune was one of the lucky declawed kitties who would have been euthanized, most declawed cats who do not use the litter box or have biting or other issues usually get put down.

This is Neptune from the Southside Animal Shelter in Indianapolis. She was declawed on all four feet and recently relinquished for not using her litter box. Our friends at the shelter knew she must be dealing with pain somewhere so they paid a visit to Dr. Nicole Martell-Moran at the Cat Care Clinic for a paw evaluation.

She exhibited signs of back pain when examined and Xrays showed bone fragments in all 18 toes! New nail was starting to grow under the skin and she was attempting to walk with more weight off of her toes than normal (palmigrade: pic below). She received surgery to remove all the fragments and hopefully offer her some relief. Wish her luck in her recovery!
