AVMA, Make Declawing Below The Standard of Care

American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA),
We, the undersigned, ask you (AVMA) to declare declawing below the standard of care in veterinary medicine.
By doing so, you will be protecting the interest of cats instead of protecting the interest of declawing veterinarians.
The Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association and British Columbia veterinarians decided to amend its code of ethics to make the practice of elective and non-therapeutic declawing ethically unacceptable. Vets in Nova Scotia and BC will no longer be able to declaw cats!
Please be an ethical veterinary association that truly cares about the welfare of cats.
Declawing is the amputation of a cat's last toe bone. It is performed routinely and often as a first option in spay/neuter/declaw packages by AVMA veterinarians despite your position statement that says it should be a last resort.
Declawing is below the standard of care.
Cats deserve better.
Many AVMA vets even declaw cats and kittens and don't use any pain meds. Here are a couple examples- http://www.citythekitty.com/many-avma-vets-declaw-cats-and-give-no-pain-meds/
It's time for you to do the right thing and stop putting the welfare of your declawing vet's pocketbooks over the welfare of cats! http://www.citythekitty.com/american-veterinary-money-association-deception-for-profits/
