AVMA Lacks Integrity And Authority — 10 Comments

  1. Thanks for the marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it,
    you might be a great author. I will remember to bookmark
    your blog and may come back someday. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great writing, have a nice weekend!

  2. We know it’s about $$.
    The majority of this group will stay wishy-washy until it’s no longer profitable. That can only come about when cat “owners” stop requesting this butchering or if vets are made to pay for their own botched crap.
    People here are becoming more aware, but if you held (5) $100 bills in front of them NOT to have their cat declawed, it might work.

  3. This just isn’t good enough and I hope all anti declaw people will tell the AVMA that it isn’t!
    I will be writing to them.
    This bit makes me so annoyed:
    ‘Acknowledgment that, in addition to potentially transmitting zoonotic diseases, cats with claws may pose increased risks of injury and morbidity for certain owners’
    How come the people in the 39 countries and 8 Californian Cities where declawing is banned are not at risk of zoonotic diseases and risk of injury too?
    The answer is because we are not, nor are any Americans!
    ‘Cats with claws may pose increased risk’
    Hello AVMA, it’s natural for cats to have claws, they are born with claws, they need claws. Anyone who thinks they are at risk doesn’t have to pay to have a cat crippled, it’s not compulsory to have a cat! Just don’t get one!
    What a cowardly association the AVMA is! What a cruel association condoning cruelty to cats!
    As for declawing keeping cats in their homes, rubbish!
    ALL the declawed cats x-rayed and helped with repair surgery by the Paw Project vets have been from Shelters, that says it all!

    • ‘Acknowledgment that, in addition to potentially transmitting zoonotic diseases, cats with claws may pose increased risks of injury and morbidity for certain owners’

      This bit is very poor indeed. It is pathetic. You could rewrite it like this:

      ‘Acknowledgment that, in addition to potentially transmitting diseases, some people may pose increased risks of injury and morbidity to other people’

  4. Michael- this blog has inspired me to write more about it. This is so huge- I am still reeling from their proposal.

    • Good on you Jo the whole injustice of it makes my blood boil!! PETA are as bad! When have they ever raised de-clawing as an issue?? Never as far as I’m aware they are all cowards crawling up their own backsides with fear!

  5. This BREAKS my heart, and the hearts of all that abhor this procedure.

    This turns my stomach – It is deplorable!
