Another declawed/crippled cat treated by Paw Project Director, Dr. Rocio Bellido. ❤️❤️❤️
Nibs is a 5-year old, front declawed, female cat that was surrendered to KC Pet Project, where Dr. Bellido practices. After taking x-rays of her paws, it was discovered found she had residual P3 bone fragments in all her toes as a result of the declaw procedure. These pieces of bone were pushing against the paw pad causing calluses and pain. She also had nail regrowth.

PAW PROJECT HELPS ANOTHER CRIPPLED CAT. Today was a big day in the Paw Project-Utah Operating Room! Dr. Kirsten Doub and Dr. Timna Fischbein (of Best Friends Animal Society), worked together to repair Sophie’s paws! Sophie is a declawed cat who has been adopted and returned several times for litterbox avoidance. Dr. Kirsten Doub, Paw Project-Utah Director, was able to pass on her considerable surgical paw repair experience and skill set to another compassionate Utah veterinarian in the hopes that more cats can be helped locally…two compassionate and caring DVMs working together to save one cat that another DVM butchered by declawing it!

MEET PAISLEY DOG -4-PAWS DECLAWED
By CassandraCat | Posted May 7, 2015
Here is something that you have to see to believe…a declawed dog! Paisley’s story starts 8 years ago when she was adopted from a humane society in Indiana. She was adopted by a woman who worked at a vet clinic. That clinic got in a new laser declawing machine and the woman wanted to “try it out” on poor Paisley. On that fateful day, Paisley was then cruelly 4-paw declawed. The woman did not like to hear the clicking sound Paisley made on the tile floor.
Then, this past May, Paisley found herself in a predicament. You see, Paisley and chickens aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. The owner got sick of Paisley chasing her chickens, and decided to have Paisley euthanized. Luckily a coworker stepped in who contacted a rescuer, who contacted another rescuer, who took Paisley in.
Paisley is just an angel of a dog! She gets along with all people and greets strangers enthusiastically, with a smile and a tail wag. She certainly does not hold a grudge, despite having ample reason to. Paisley seems to ignore most dogs, she’d probably be happiest as an only dog, but may do well with a calm male. She’s even good with cats! Paisley just turned 9 in June but that doesn’t slow her down. She is not overly energetic, but she still loves a good play session. Paisley is non-destructive and housebroken.
Paisley is also on medication for hypothyroidism. She takes her pills without problem in a piece of cheese. She is fully vetted and has medical records dating back to 2000.
Paisley is located in Lafayette, IN.
