Initially conceived after I viewed the documentary, “The Paw Project”, and became interested in researching the subject of declawing and the reasons this particular area of animal surgery was initially developed, and is offered to clients.
This book was written over a period of one year, and was edited by Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM – a veterinarian who has firsthand knowledge of the potential for complications of this surgery on cats.
Since any operation has risks, just like a person facing surgery wants to know all the facts prior to “going under the knife”, this book offers most all the facts a pet owner may want to learn prior to getting their cat declawed.
This book discusses the anatomy of cats, pain behavior unique to the feline species, the reasons people declaw, the procedure of declawing, health risks to the cat, post-operative outcomes, alternatives to declawing, in a respectful but factual manner – practically everything you may need to know about declawing, and will help you make an informed decision whether the risks are worth subjecting your loving pet to this surgery.and more. By the time you finish reading this book, you will have a more thorough understanding on declawing and why declawing can affect the health of your pet.
