We Trusted Our Vet

Our vet told us that declawing should be done to be proactive. Never once did he mention he could teach us how to trim our cats nails. He didn’t offer a choice. He didn’t offer any education as to what the operation entailed. It was all so routine. Like it was just ‘what you did’.

We trusted our vet with the care of our babies. He hurt them and we didn’t even know it. What is even worse, is that he thinks he was providing a SERVICE to us.
I’ve not once had a vet explain to me the horrible side of declawing but they are quick to offer it as a “proactive solution”.

Property Management Companies Who Took The Declaw Requirement Out Of Their Pet Policies

I did receive your email and discussed it internally with the regional managers yesterday evening before we left for the day. We have come to the agreement that we are going to remove the declawing policy in our current Resident Policies. However, due to hardwood floors and trim, we will be increasing our Pet Deposit. I appreciate you reaching out to us and we are more than happy to accommodate our furry friends the way they are! We plan on having another internal meeting within the next week (most likely after Labor Day weekend) and will re-write the policies to become truly pet friendly across all 6,000 units across Indiana & Ohio.

The Big, Ugly, Unethical Business of Amputating Cat Toes & Claws

“We can’t declaw a dog. Dog’s nails are different than cat nails and dogs nails have veins in the nails. Cats don’t have veins inside their nails,” said the employee at this veterinary practice after asking the veterinarian.

When you know better… you do better

Our chat was back in the spring some time. You were kind enough to educate me and forever change my views on declawing as i truly has no idea what the procedure really was. So…. I’m happy to introduce you to my 8 year old rescue I got this week named Bubbles ? … she was rescued by our local spca from a horrific hoarding situation and i fell in love with her the moment i met her ❤❤ she is the most loving and cuddly cat i’ve ever met!

Declawing her will NEVER be an option thanks to you and I found a great solution i think you will be proud of…. thanks again for helping me understand what declawing is and leave it in the past.

My Veterinarian Deceived Me About Declawing Taz

My baby, Tasmanian Devil was a graduation gift when I graduated high school in 2002. We waited til he was a year old then we got him fixed. When he got home he was so mad he tore up my mother’s couch.
We decided to talk to his vet about declawing. Well, we were told that he would be put under and there would be no pain whatsoever.
He was so very wrong, when it got cold his paws would swell and it was hard for him to walk. I felt horrible and heart broken.

AAHA hospital says this sweet kitty is doing GREAT after toe amputations.

“That’s on an opinion basis per se and the animal rights activists mostly think it’s inhumane because you are taking off the digits of their fingers. But it’s been in veterinary practice and it’s still done upon a clients preference or decision. We don’t judge or anything if you want to get your cat declawed, we won’t say no.” Cat owner said they are still confused if it is ok to declaw their kitties employee said, “if you want to read more into it on the internet that’s totally up to you. Like I’ve said we’ve done plenty, many, many before.”

Bottom line is AAHA knows declawing is wrong and they are strongly opposed to it, but they don’t care at all how the vets at their hospitals are addressing it.
This is ALL a big lie.

AAHA hospital says 4 paw declaws are healed & back to normal in 7-10 days

When the first time cat owners asked what do they recommend, they say, “Occasionally we have people who do all four, but most people just do the front because typically cats will damage furniture or claw things with their front feet only.”
