I am a declawed against my will kitty who was dumped because I developed behavior problems such as biting. I was found wandering the woods without any defense. Since 1950, millions of kitties have been getting their p3 bones on each toe amputated, they end up walking on their p2 bones, or wrists. All cats suffer from declawing, some show it more than others. All cats who are declawed are always in pain. There are plenty of true accounts of cats who had to be euthanized because of complications, some had bone regrowth, some get declawed on all four paws, some have bone pieces inside their paws, some limp, some urinate every where but the litter box, some have had their entire paws amputated.
The AVMA, AAHA, and AAFP have declaw policies but they do not enforce them. Their due paying members declaw kittens during the spay/neuter which is against policy, the kitten is supposed to be given a chance to be trained and to use the many options available such as Soft Paws nail caps, sisal and cardboard scratching posts, sprays, tapes, etc. Veterinarians who declaw do as they please without anyone enforcing them to do the right thing. They mutilate kitty paws for profit only, and use the excuse “your furniture will not get ruined”. Declawing is legal animal cruelty, there is a reason it is banned in 44 countries.
If you can, please give your buisness to veterinarians who do not declaw. Animals can sense the screams on those clinic walls from cats waking up from their declaws, it has been known some veterinarians do not use the full amount of meds required during a declaw. You are not there to see what goes on, I have heard of veterinarians not using any meds at all! This is why clients have to call first before they pick up their cat, they don’t want you to see the bloody paws or bloody crate. They do not want you to make a surprise visit in case you hear your cat screaming. A vet tech quit because a cat woke up and bashed itself against the cage because she was in so much pain, she died in her bloody torture chamber. Animals sense cruelty-they know the heart, that’s why people do not like anyone their pet does not like. Try to use veterinarians who do not declaw, your cats and dogs are traumatized at every vet visit because they think their body parts will be amputated-animals are smart and sense exactly what goes on in those ‘chambers of horror’.
