Declaws Should Be Performed Humanely

We have all heard some of the reasons onychectomy is evil:

  • No reasonable cat would willingly choose to have the procedure done. .
  • Vets have only gone to school for, like, 20 years or so, and are obviously incapable of making intelligent decisions. Plus, they’re in it for the money. Therefore, politicians, lobbyists and activists should make sound decisions for them.

A ring block is an easy procedure that can provide excellent preoperative pain relief to the distal front limb.

It is important to make sure the drugs do not contain epinephrine.

A total of 0.1 to 0.3 ml of the mixture can be injected using a 22 G needle at each site.
