Reasons for cat declawing Vancouver WA:
Many people have lots of questions about cat declawing. One question that is often asked is, “What are valid reasons to declaw a cat?” Here we can discuss some reasons that are considered good reasons to declaw.
One very valid reason to declaw a cat is because it is medically necessary. If a claw is damaged beyond repair, or if your cat has a tumor, these can make declawing a necessity. An injury to the toe, or an infection that won’t respond to treatment are some other conditions that can make declawing necessary.
It can also be done as a remedy to solve the problem of actual trauma to cat owners. While it doesn’t happen often, there are instances where people may have a supressed immune system and cannot be exposed to bacteria and scratches. There are also some extreme cases where cats use their claws against people. If it’s a choice between declawing a cat or euthanizing him, declawing may be the only solution. Also, some would argue that if it’s a choice between giving up the cat or declawing it, or making it live outside versus declawing, then declawing might be considered an alternative.
