Teeger was declawed at an AAHA Hospital. Teeger and his two siblings have had most of their paws amputated due to horrific complications from their declaw procedures.
Today is Flashback Friday and I’m in quite a reflective mood. That’s me in the middle with the cone of shame on. It’s from my overnight stay at the Emergency Veterinary Hospital when I came down with that scary vestibular disease.
My friends. I want to let you all know how much I appreciate you. You all are family to me.
There is a post from a veterinarian on the AVMA’s facebook page that is causing a big uproar and it’s all about standards, ethics, and poor medical care.
The topic is non-anesthesia dental cleaning.
He was a great man. A humanitarian, a civil rights activist, and an inspiring leader with integrity and honor.
Some unethical pro-declaw veterinarians promote amputating kitties toes to stop cat scratch fever or disease. These are the simple facts about this disease and according to all the modern thinking, educated, and humane veterinarians and human health experts, declawing should NEVER be done for any reason, including this cat scratch fever disease.
Here are many examples of those in the veterinary profession and some outside of it, who could truly help to end the inhumane procedure of declawing, but aren’t.
I’ve decided to start bringing attention to a pitiful new trend in veterinary medicine that revolves around our cause to end declawing.
This is a horrific story about 3 kitties named Teeger, Abby, and Ryder, whose lives have been tragically ruined because of being declawed.
