Why a Declawed Cat Can Become a “Dead-Ender

#172: Dr. Ron Gaskin in Minnesota talks about the revolutionary surgical reversal he has pioneered to relieve the pain and disfigurement of the feet of declawed cats. He and Tracie talk about the cruelty and suffering being imposed on cats by veterinarians still mutilating cats’ feet with declawing [although they know better] — and owners who don’t discover the harm done until their cats wind up as “dead enders” in “no kill shelters” where they are unadoptable because their suffering has caused them to bite and stop using a litter box.
