Facts About Declawing
- Declawing is amputation; it is not merely the removal of the claws. To declaw a cat, the veterinarian cuts off the last knuckles of a cat’s paw – cutting through bone, tendons, skin and nerves. In a person, it is equivalent to amputating each finger or toe at the last joint.
- Declaw surgery can be an extremely painful procedure with associated health risks and complications such as infection.
- Declaw surgery can produce permanent lameness, pain or arthritis.
- Declawing is the same mutilating procedure for house cats or big cats.
