Tambi Renee: The Effects of Declawing

1 Apr

Pet ownership should never be taken lightly, particularly when it comes to protecting the health of one’s furry companions. Tambi Renee recommends taking every step to ensure that you are doing everything you can to keep your pet safe, healthy and happy.

Information is power, particularly when it comes to unnecessary surgical procedures that have the potential to pose undue harm and pain onto a defenseless animal. Cat declawing, says Tambi Renee, is for the most part an unnecessary and painful procedure. She hopes to provide useful information as to the harmful effects of declawing; information, she hopes, will inspire people to avoid a practice that adversely affects the life of a cat.

Cat declawing, according to both Tambi Renee and the Humane Society of the United States, can have serious drawbacks for a cat’s health and welfare. The surgical removal of a cat’s claws, she says, can lead to a lifetime of pain, infection and even tissue death. Declawing is an invasive surgical procedure that amounts to amputation, which, according to Tambi Renee, drastically changes a cat’s mobility and can potentially lead to nerve damage, painful regrowth and even bone spurs. By removing a cat’s claws, she says, you not only change the behavior of your furry friend, you also affect the way it moves, reacts and ultimately coexists with the owner.

Tambi Renee also recognizes that many feline victims of declawing may resort to biting as a defense mechanism. With no claws available to defend themselves, cats will often use biting to avoid a perceived attack. Cat bites, says Tambi Renee, are extremely unhealthy and can lead to costly and painful medical procedures down the road.
