Celebrate! The declawing veterinarians of America are in retreat! — 4 Comments

  1. MICHAEL IM AGAINST EAR TIPPING BECASUE ITS UNECESSARY DAMAGES AND TRAUMA TO THE CAT. THE CAT LOOKS LIKE A HANOUS HIDEOUS CRIME HAPPENED TO IT. AND ITS EXACTLY WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE A CRIME. IM RAISING CONCERNS RELATED TO THE PREFORMANCE OF UNECESSARY SURGERIES AND MORE SPECIFICALLY TO THE ALTERING OF AN ANIMAL-EAR TIPPING- WHERE THERE IS NO MEDICAL REASON TO SUPPORT THE PROCEDURE. ITS BEING USED AS/FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES.AS YOU MENTIONED “USUALLY IT COULD BE SEEN FROM A DISTAMCE” -THERE ARE NO BENEFITS TO THE CAT JUST DAMAGES . VETERINARIANS ARE GENERALLY NON-SUPPORTIVE OF ANY PROCEDURE ON AN ANIMAL THAT IS NEITHER NECESSARY NOR BASED ON SOLID SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE. YOU MENTIONED AUSTRAILIA BANNED EAR TIPPING IN TNR -CLAIMING IT JUST DOESNT WORK. MEDICALLY UNECESSARY VETERINARY SURGERIES ( MUVS ). VETERINARY ACT AND THE COLLEGE OF VETERINARIANS DOESNT SUPOORT IT – BECASUE IT COULD CREATE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES THAT WOULD NOT SUPPORT SAFE ANIMAL CARE. IM CONCERNED ABOUT THE TREATMENT AND CARE OF CATS . CATS EARS MATTER. THE HUMANE SOCIETY AND SPCA ADD EAR TIPPING TO TNR THEY GO OUTSIDE THE LAW – AND SHOULD BE CHARGED SOMEONE HAS TO STOP THEM VETERINARIANS CAN BE CHARGED UNDER THE CRIMINAL CODE AND CAN RECIEVE A 10 YEAR JAIL SENTENCE. ” CATS EARS HAVE A DEFENCE: UNDER VETERINARY LAW AS IT DOESNT SUPPORT MEDICALLY UNECESSARY VETERINARY SURGERY . EAR TIPPING IS NOT A NORMAL METHOD FOR IDENTIFICATION OF SPAYED AND NUETERED FEROL CATS. ITS HAS TO BE NORMAL METHOD FOR IDENTIFICATION THESE CATS ARE 2LBS THEY DONT HAVE MUCH AND TO CHOP OFF A PERFECTLY NORMAL FUNCTIONING EAR THEY NEED AND THROW IT INTO THE GARBAGE IS AN EXPLOSIVE INJUSTICE. YOU CANNOT COMPARE EAR TIPPING IN CATS TO ANYTHING ELSE ITS A RARE CRIME THAT THE SPCA AND HUMANE SOCIETIES AND VETERINARIANS THAT ARE DECIDEING TO PERFORM THE PROCEDURE ARE GETTING AWAY WITH . IT WILL BE PUT TO AN END JUST LIKE DECLAWING WAS BECASUE IT ALSO WAS A CRIME. HOW DARE THEY.THEY HAVE NO BOARDERS ITS SCARY IT GOES TO FAR FOR IDENTIFYING SPAYED AND NEUTERED CATS AND ITS COMPLETELY NOT REQUIRED. GIVE CATS THEIR RIGHTS TO THEIR EARS BACK
    IT GOES FAR BEYOND AESTHEICS IT CROSSES LINES AND ITS A CRIME. IM DEFENDING CATS USING THE LAW. CATS HAVE FULL RIGHT OVER THEIR EARS.

    • Thank you, Gloria, for commenting. I support your campaign against unnecessary surgery on cats. Declawing is in a different league to ear tipping. Ear tipping can, arguably, be useful for identification purposes but declawing for non-therapeutic purposes is a barbaric crime in many countries but in the USA is entirely accepted. It is a shock to me that this is the case. And ear tipping is carried out carelessly by many veterinarians who remove too much of the ear flap. That, too, is quite brutal and incorrect. There seems to be a percentage of veterinarians in America who simply should not be in the business. They don’t have enough sensitivity towards the health and welfare of the animals in their charge.

  2. YOU CAN ADD EAR TIPPING IN CATS TO THAT LIST/ITS TIME TO CHANGE THE INTERNATIONAL SYMBOL OF SPAYED AND NEUTERED FEROL CATS FROM EAR TIPPING TO PERMANTENT COLOURING THEIR TAILS TO A COLOUR THAT CAN IDENTIFY THEM FROM A DISTANCE- NEON GREEN -CATS WERE SACRED IN EGYPT AND WERE MUMMIFIED AND PLACED IN THE TOMBS OF THEIR OWNER LETS RESPECT CATS AND MAKE IT INTERNATIONALLY SYMBOLIC THAT THEIR BODY PARTS CANNOT BE TAKEN UNLESS THERE IS A MEDICAL RESAON TO DO SO FOR THIER SURVIVAL GIVE THEM LE WITHOUT RESPECT WE GET THE ABOVE MENTINED UNMENTIONABLES CHOPPING OFF THEIR EAR TO IDENTIFY THEM FROM A DISTANCE ISNT HELPING – THERE ARE PRODUCTS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES IN CATS : MICRO CHIPPING COLLARS EAR TAGS LETS GET THAT STRAIGHT ELIMINATE THE ERROR ELIMINATE THE DAMAGES
    EAR TIPPING IN BANNED IN AUSTRAILIA AS OF 2021- ACCORDING TO MICHAEL BROAD
    DECLAWING IS BANNED IN CANADA- ACCORDING TO ME I LIVE HERE
    I DEMAND BANNING INTERNATIONAL EAR TIPPING AND DECLAWING IN CATS AMEN
    IVE CONNTATED NUMEROUS VETERINARY COLLEGES VETERINARIANS LAW ADMINISTRATIONS I CONTINUE MY DEFENCE FOR THESE BELOVED CATS AND THEIR VERY NEEDED BODY PARTS THEY HAVE SO LITTLE LETS NOT TAKE ANYTHING THATS IN FULL FUNCTIONIN ORDER -CATS EARS MATTER CATS CLAWS MATTER …PEOPLE PLEASE I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SO LONG…GOD PLEASE PROTECT THE CATS IN OUR CARE AND MAKE US REALIZE OUR HUMAN ERRORS SO THAT WE CAN RUSH TO CORRECT OURSELVES OBVIOUSLY WE LOOSE IT AFTER A CERTAIN POINT CLEAR OUR THINKING

    • Gloria, thank you for commenting. Why are you so against ear tipping? I know that it can look bad and it can be done badly. Further, it is arguably aesthetically a bad idea. But they say that it doesn’t hurt and it doesn’t distress the cat. I would expect it to hurt when it is amputated but the cat quickly adjusts. And visually it can be seen at quite a distance but it is not a foolproof way of identifying a feral cat which is why I argue people who like to shoot cats should not shoot them because they might be shooting someone’s pet. Notwithstanding that it is often nearly always completely illegal to shoot a cat and a crime in most states in the US.
