Change the Code of Ethics

This petition had 1,310 supporters


Declawing is a medically unnecessary surgery that is being performed by many vet practices in Nova Scotia. Except in cases where there is a medical problem (ie. tumour or cancerous growth), there is NO MEDICAL BENEFIT to the cat. It is a very painful amputation, sometimes painful for the rest of the cats life. It can alter their personalities, and it can force them to defend themselves and mark their territory in other ways (biting and outside the litter box urination).
