Will AAHA’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Jessica Vogelsang, Be Able To Inspire AAHA to Ban Declawing in their hospitals?
In 2021 AAHA.org hired a new Chief Medical Officer, Dr Jessica Vogelsang.
AAHA says that they are strongly opposed to declawing, that veterinarians should tell their clients that it is a procedure that is no longer supported or reasonable yet they allow it in their AAHA Accredited Animal Hospitals. Many of them perform this inhumane amputation on a regular basis, they advertise declawing, put out declawing coupons, and lie about it and say that the cats are ok long term after they are declawed.
We are optimistic that Dr Vogelsang will be the progressive, ethical, and humane veterinary leader at AAHA who sees the value in doing the right thing, being on the right side of this issue and history, and will inspire AAHA to put the welfare of all animals first and ban declawing in their AAHA accredited animal hospitals.
Thrive Pet Healthcare allows declawing in their stand alone clinics. Thrive Petco clnics do not perform declawing. Petco told us in 2018, “Please know that Petco and the Petco Foundation do not support the practice of declawing unless it is a medical necessity (for the cat).” Some of the Thrive Pet Healthcare practices don’t perform declawing and they say their doctors don’t think declaws are ethical or humane. Many other Thrive Pet Healthcare vet clinics routinely perform declawing and their employees say it is ok for a cat and some even ask if you want two or four paws declawed.
