Employee at Family Pet Hospital in Clarksville, TN said that Dr Burchette and a few other vets do the declaws. When asked if they use a laser for the declaws, the employee said, “they use a tool, kind of like what you can buy at Walmart with a circle” and said that they put the cat’s finger through it. They said that they wrap the cat in bandages that stay on for around 10 days.
They said that they sell a special litter, Purina’s Yesterday’s News, for the declaw cats. Please sign our petition to Purina. Purina makes millions of dollars each year from declawing.
