It is animal abuse to declaw cats

This petition had 1,395 supporters

PEI Veterinary Medical Association members vote on cat declawing from time to time and still vote in favour of it.  It should be a prohibited procedure in PEI's Animal Welfare Act as it is actually an amputation of every last toe joint of the cat - not just nail clipping.  It is brutal and causes terrible pain and continuing discomfort for the cat. If Vets adhere to the Hippocratic Oath as doctors do: "First, do no harm" then this barbaric and obsolete procedure should be banned and condemned by PEIVMA members, not promoted and practiced by them!
