Let’s say it: Doctors who declaw cats are EVIL

Strong words. Are they accurate? The word ‘evil’ means ‘profoundly immoral and wicked’. There is no doubt in my mind that to unnecessarily amputate the tips of ten toes, for the cat owner’s convenience, is wicked especially as it is done by a professional, educated person who should know better and who has sworn an oath to only act in the best interests of the cat’s health and welfare. These ‘doctors’ would be criminals in jail in many countries.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

Declawing is so profoundly against all that a veterinarian should stand for that, in this context, it is wicked.

To try and justify it, is also wicked. Representatives of veterinarians argue that declawing should not be banned. They say the client should have the choice. Wrong. Many vets don’t try and dissuade clients against declawing and many cat owners are ignorant of what declawing is and its consequences. Vets should simply refuse to do it. It should not be on their radar. It should not exist as an operation.

Animal doctors that declaw say that they have to do it because, if they refuse, their client will go to another vet who will do it. Therefore, they argue, the vet is not evil. Wrong. This is an admission of failure. It is an admission that there are too many vets who declaw without resistance and as a normal operation. It is moral turpitude. Where is the backbone of vets? If all North American vets refused to declaw, which should be the norm, clients would have to abandon the idea of declawing their cats. Vets could be proud of their profession again.

When they started to declaw cats, evil entered the veterinary profession in North America. It is a poison within the profession. It dramatically lowers the status of North American veterinarians in the eyes of the world. It undermines their self-worth. Europeans looking in see something unfathomable. It is incomprehensible. In fact the majority of Europeans had not heard of declawing cats until they looked to North America. A nasty vet in the 1950s introduced the concept and against all odds it stuck and became a mainstream operation. Shame on the vets, driven by financial profit, who allowed this to happen.

Strong words. They have to be. They match the gravity, the immorality, the wickedness of this veterinary operation.

  1. The AVMA is vile. Read this. Dated Feb. 13, 2019

    Symposium attendees talked through how they would advocate on complex subjects that could reach legislatures, city councils, and regulators, using as examples cat declawing, medical marijuana in pets, and examination requirements in telemedicine. At one table, four veterinarians described the changes in public perception about declawing, which procedures have better outcomes, the emotion in the debate over municipal bans on declawing procedures, possible risks to cats and immunocompromised people when these procedures are unavailable, and possible allies or opponents in these debates.

  3. I was going to comment again, because this atrocity needs to be kept alive in our consciousness until it is dead in practice, but what I and everyone else said before says it all. I’d only add that I’m atheist and don’t speak in religious terms. I still agree and feel as deeply as anyone with all my being that an immoral act is wrong to the extreme. I simply take the devil (a cartoon character) out of the equation and lay blame upon the people who amputate claws for profit or even give it a pass. Everyone, even cat haters should condemn it.

    • Yes, thanks Albert. I wrote this years ago and the lady who recently commented has a website fighting cat declawing. I wrote the article for her cat. She adopted a declawed cat. Declawing is probably the most hateful thing to take place in the domestic cat world after the hell of a region of Southern China where they eat domestic cats after brutally killing them.

      • Yes, and I also adopted a declawed cat who suffered in all the usual and predictable ways. That cat was also deaf… Worse, as you mention is perpetrated on a grand scale, but it’s all cruelty, unnecessary and should be stopped.

        • Thanks. I hate with a vengeance cat declawing. It hurts my heart to think of it; the poor cats suffering this and there are millions of them. Horrendous.

          • We share that hate for declawing, veterinarians who declaw cats are psychotic cat hating monsters. That ASS.ociation that started it, and keeps it legal, will have their day in kitty court. Never underestimate the power of cat karma. Veterinarians who declaw should wake up without fingers. What goes around comes around. I have seen many accounts of declawed cats who suffer, I cannot imagine when they first started in the 50’s, without any peer reviewed studies, what those poor cats went through, are still going through, damn those monsters to Gehenna.

          • Here is an example of a knife-happy cat-hating veterinarian who amputated a kitten’s claws and the client did NOT want the kitten declawed.

    This poor high schooler, an intern at a vet clinic, is getting the wrong message from her “mentor.” Declawing is unnecessary…it is mutilation…and, PS, the “guy” is a girl kitty….poor, innocent baby cat.

    This is what I referred to earlier, the ‘poor’ girl holding that mutilated cat, dazed and shocked from the amputation of her 10 toe ends! Holding her by the scruff on a cold steel table to pose smiling has sickened anti declaw advocates. Some people are defending her, sorry but surely anyone who has just witnessed 10 amputations shouldn’t be posing and smiling. Poor cat, crippled for life and used as a photo prop, it breaks my cat loving heart!

      • Thanks Michael, this is what we are up against in the veterinary profession. What sort of vet is that girl going to be if she handles cats just out of anaesthesia that way and smiles about their suffering?
        Some one making excuses for her and the clinic even said the cat must have had cancer in her toes! What? All ten!!!!

        • We simply need to constantly out these doctors, for however long it takes to make them stop. Every time their face and practice appears on Facebook and other social media, it is a step toward victory for these poor cats. Let’s not let up, I really wish we could get names and faces and the cities in which these people practice this torture. Post, post and post again, until this stops.

          Reply
          • Yes name and shame! Apparently someone named this person and the clinic and upset the ‘poor’ grinning soul and the comment was removed. I have to wonder what the cat’s owners would think of their pet being used as a photo prop….then again, they did pay for her to be crippled for life, so………………

        • To answer your question about what type of vet she will be? The same kind as Kristen Lindsey: cold hearted and delusional. 🀬😿
