Declawing is excruciatingly painful for the cat. Cat declawing has been legally declared to be animal cruelty in the U.S.A. It involves ten separate amputations of the cat’s toes at the third joint. In other words, this invasive surgery amputates functioning bones. Declawing severs not only the cat’s claws, but also the attached nerves, bones, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The surgery carries significant risks of lifetime physical, psychological, and behavioral consequences. Adult cats have an increased risk of medical and behavior complications; the older the cat, the worse the risk.
Anti-Declawing Handbook for Cat Lovers! Updated for 2018! To help cat lovers and animal advocates understand the truth about declawing that so many veterinarians and organizations lie about, Dr. Jean has written a detailed, fully-referenced ebook that is 100% free to download and share!
“The history of dogs is inextricably woven together with our human story, and our bonds have grown closer with each generation—from being wolves on the fringe to their relatively new status as our best friends (and even de facto children). Their love and companionship have impacted our society as well as our individual lives. Through their unconditional love and loyalty, they teach us to be more humane. We owe it to them to ensure they live a full and healthy life alongside us.”
