Judgement day is coming soon! Another of a growing number of non declawing vets is prepared to take a stand:
‘PAW PROJECT – it’s a growing thing! Dr. Stephanie Globerman is the new Director of Paw Project-Georgia, the most recent chapter in the Paw Project movement! We are proud to have them on our team of passionate advocates striving for change! Besides making the world a better place for cats, Dr. Globerman runs an all-feline animal hospital, Paws Whiskers & Claws, in Marietta, GA’
It’s good to see more non declawing vets speaking out at long last and joining the Paw Project in their practice cities to educate people about the cruel declawing of cats.
Would that one day the scenario in the poster would come true and every vet who ever declawed a cat was tried and sentenced. The evidence of the cruelty and the dreadful consequences to cats is building up, they would all be found guilty without a doubt!
Unfortunately it seems that studies of x-rays and the repair surgery on the mutilated paws of cats are being done on cats in Rescue Shelters, or like Tina’s Mollie now with a home, but once adopted from a Shelter.
How could anyone ever trace the vet who performed the declawing in the first place? It must be almost impossible, because despite declawing vets saying the surgery keeps cats in their homes, it doesn’t! Many people have given up on their cats and relinquished them to a Shelter or turned then out when the physical and/or mental problems from the declawing have manifested.
We now have this shocking truth from Paw Project Utah too, they say: ‘We have some preliminary study data and the results are SHOCKING!!!
- Out of 29 declawed cats analyzed in Utah shelters, 66% have left over P3 fragments from declaws being performed improperly!
- 33% of these 29 cats have more than 5 fragments!
- 45% of these 29 cats have at least one fragment that is more than 5mm!
- 28% of these 29 cats have a declaw that was performed 100% improperly meaning that a large 5mm fragment remains on all declawed toes!’
So, how many more cats have been improperly declawed? How many cats have suffered pain all their lives and died without anyone knowing? Will some ‘owners’ (I say owners not caretakers because caretakers do not pay someone to mutilate their cat) who had a cat declawed, step forward and have their cats paws x-rayed and the findings showing bone fragments, sue the vet who did the surgery?
They should, because if a surgeon had botched surgery on the feet of those people they would soon be talking about suing for malpractice!
There IS no way to declaw a cat ‘properly’ but it seems many vets have attempted to anyway and failed, thus causing pain and distress to thousands of cats because of botched surgery which should never ever have been performed at all!
