Tell Canada- Ban Cat Declawing

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Canadian Veterinary Medical Association, Executive Committee President Dr. Jim Fairles

Declawing is an understatement, because in order to remove a cat’s claws, the first joints of each toe are actually amputated. It is a very painful elective surgery that could take weeks of recovery and effects walking or scratching in their litter box. It can also cause lameness and balance disturbances. And there are also anesthesia risks.

This elective surgery to amputate is a convinence for cat owners to keep the kitty from scratching their furniture. We suggest if pet owners are that concerned about their belongings, they do not own cats.

Recently, Isreal has banned the practice of declawing cats. It joins 24 other countries,- England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Germany, Bosnia, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Japan, Denmark, Ireland, Finland, Slovenia, Portugal, Belgium, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Yugoslavia, Malta, Israel. It's time for the Canada to ban this inhumane practice, as well.

We ask the Canadian Association to stop this unethical practice and ban declawing cats.
