AVMA veterinarian who is deceiving cat clients about declawing
There is a deeply troubling emerging picture of inappropriate standard of care and substandard practice of veterinary medicine with regards to declawing in America. Declawing cats with no pain meds.
“I still was thinking it was a sprain so after she examined him, she found nothing but she told me I should declaw him!”
Here are facts from top officials and veterinarians at the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, New York State Humane Association, The Paw Project, and Ethical Veterinary, that you can use when people try to justify doing this mutilating procedure.
Dear Grumpy Cat,
I’m writing you today from my heart Grumpy Cat. I hope you will help us and save kitties from this senseless, cruel, and inhumane thing.
I’m proud to say I no longer declaw
I have a serious and urgent subject to address and have put on my Feline Bureau of Investigation hat to get to the bottom of this alleged crime.
If the AAFP truly cares about the welfare of cats, they can do what their European equivalents, International Society of Feline Medicine/ICatCare.org, have done for years, and that is to only give their Cat Friendly accreditation to practices to vet practices that don’t declaw cats.
“I’m so against declawing that I’ve lost all desire to work in vet medicine.
I worked at ….. Animal Hospital for about a year and half. After the Paw Project came out, Dr ….. and I were thrilled to finally have a tool to help curb the desire to declaw. It worked great! We nearly stopped all declaws.
We must keep educating cat owners about the FACTS about declawing. Throughout the last couple years of taking on this important cause to end declawing I’ve learned this dirty little secret about declawing in the veterinary profession.
