Although so much more is now known about the consequences of declawing a cat, many American vets still continue to perform the surgery. The information from Paw Project Utah that many cats have suffered from a botched declawing and have fragments of bone in their paws is horrifying.
Their latest case is Davis who was four paw declawed. According to Paw Project Utah, the procedure probably took 5 minutes and cost the cat’s owner 100 dollars.
Davis has now undergone 5 hours of reconstructive surgery on his back paws where 15 fragments of bone were found and which has cost the Paw Project 1300 dollars so far.
It’s a wonder to me that declawing vets don’t jump on the repairing of paws bandwagon and profit out of it! But no, that would be admitting declawing does cause problems! It would be admitting they know full well how cruel they are! been through 2 extensive surgeries totaling 5 hours of reconstructive paw surgery and used $1300 of donated money and supplies to fix what took another DVM 5 mins and likely $100 to mess up.
Dr. Doub, state director of Paw Project-Utah has removed 15 P3 fragments from Davis’ paws, repositioned all his paw pads to cushion P2, as well as explored every toe, the surface of every P2, and treated and debrided abcesses and nail fragments growing under the skin. Worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Just ask Davis! This guy is a purr machine and tearing around Lyn’s home like a mad man. Today we finished Davis’s start to a new life by addressing his
The evidence is there for all to see on the internet, I don’t think any vet can deny seeing it, yet they ignore it.
They are deliberately crippling cats for money!
I don’t imagine that any declawing vet ever remembers any individual cat he has declawed, cats are just numbers to him. He amputated a cat’s toe ends, received his blood money for doing it and moved on to the next victim.
How many cats feel like they are walking on broken glass?
The Karma those vets deserve is to walk barefoot on broken glass themselves, for the life span of each cat they have crippled and caused to live in pain. This means that they should walk on broken glass for eternity.
No one will ever know how many cats relinquished to Shelters when the problems from the declawing begin had fragments of bone causing them pain. Many of those cats are dead, killed as unadoptable. Their lives taken from them because of some declawing vet who has long forgotten the innocent frightened kitten he anaesthetised, whose toe ends he amputated, the kitten who woke up disabled, shocked and in pain.
The kitten who grew into a cat but unable to live life as a cat should. The kitten who developed mental and /or physical problems from the declawing, who the family called a ‘bad cat’ and didn’t want him around any more. The family who PAID a vet to ruin that cat’s life on their behalf.
All declawed cats are not affected by fragments of bone but they suffer in other ways and we will never know how many are living in pain and how many more will be, as long as this abuse of cats is legal.
When will this legalised cruelty stop?
