Only in America can “doctors” of veterinary medicine achieve the highest standards of excellence in their veterinary hospitals, AAHA, and Cat Friendly Gold Standard Practice and amputate the toes and claws on kittens who are 3 months old AND on all four paws. Here is one of the many very unethical examples where these “doctors” are deceiving their clients and the public to believe that cats and kittens can be “happy and healthy” after they have had this mutilating procedure done to them.
Here is their YouTube video that will make you sick. They promote declawing 3 month old kittens on all four paws and say it is a necessity for some of their clients HeartlandAHDeclaw. Heartland Animal Hospital PC, Bartlett, Illinois
American Animal Hospital Association is opposed to declawing but they have no accountability with their declawing policy [button href=”http://citythekitty.org/aaha-double-standard-no-accountability-for-declawing/” color=”red” newwindow=”yes”] AAHA and their double standards[/button]
American Association of Feline Practitioners is also against declawing [button href=”http://citythekitty.org/cat-friendly-practices-and-vets-who-declaw-cats/” color=”red” newwindow=”yes”] American Association Feline Practitioners declawing policy [/button]
Yet they don’t have accountability for their declawing policies. They don’t want to lose their memberships from these very unethical veterinarians and put this concern over the welfare of these little kitties .
Did you know that 76% of declaws in America are done on kittens who are under 8 months old. Last resort? These poor kittens never had the chance to use scratchers and the humane alternatives. The pro-declaw vets who declaw kittens (and cats) make a great extra income by doing this unethical and inhumane procedure on kittens. Just like the President of the NYSVMS does with kittens.

Please don’t threaten or be rude to anyone involved. We must do the right thing and take the high road and be respectful. It is wrong to threaten them in any way plus they will twist things around and play the victim. We know that the only victims are all the kitties that are being unnecessarily and cruelly declawed. We MUST continue to shine light on this cause and share all of these stories so that we show the truth about what is going on. We MUST continue to educate cat owners who are being deceived by their pro-declaw vets and who are NOT being told about how declawing is amputations and not good for the health and well being of their cats, how it is inhumane and very painful, and how there are humane alternatives that they can use instead of declawing.
The way that we make positive change is through peaceful and respectful actions and words. When you lash out and are threatening, it hurts our important cause and makes us all look bad, and in turn saves less kitties from this very cruel and inhumane procedure.
