Is Cat Declawing Really Necessary?
Cat declawing is definitely a thorny issue and deciding whether to do it or not is one of the most important decisions a car owner has to make.
The Truth About Cat Declawing
According to the veterinarian Neil Wolff, declawing is not only unnecessary procedure, but it also inhumane. Declawing is an interference with the cat’s nature and people often decide to do it because of their lack of information and incorrect knowledge.
Dr. Nicholas Dodman, who is the author of The Cat Who Cried for Help, and the director of the Animal Behavior Clinic at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, thinks that declawing is the same as mutilation to a tee. He also says that this procedure is used as a model of severe pain for the testing of analgesic medications.
