Declaws Should Be Performed Humanely

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

  • It as a barbaric as cutting people’s knuckles off. Cats end up miserably painful and unable to walk and jump for the rest of their lives. .

  • 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.

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.
