Many vets who declaw say they have never seen complications. Here is one Savannah cat example.

The complications of declawing are legendary but the many vets (tens of thousands and the majority of American vets) say that they have never seen complications. Where are they looking? Are they blind or in denial? It is a terrible and shameless denial of the reality of this operation.

The Paw Project write on their Facebook page that this attractive Savannah cat (expensive) was declawed 13 years ago by his previous owners. He suffered pain in his paws because the claws started to regrow. Of course domestic cats in pain are silent but no doubt there were body language signs like a poor gait.

The Paw Project carried out repair surgery. They ask if the vet who did the declawing realises that his surgery (I’d call is cruel, legalised mutilation) caused this cat pain for many years. I wonder. He probably does not and if he did he’d ignore it.

There are many pages on declawing on this website because I hate it and find the whole thing unfathomable. It is a massive aberration and abdication of the veterinarian’s oath and moral duty when veterinarians declaw cats at the request of the cat’s owner for the purpose of preventing the scratching of furniture which is the reason in 99% of cases.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
