|The vet is Dr Glenn Ephraim - he proudly declaws cats|
Hard science is the best way to stop this money spinning but unnecessary operation. Hard irrefutable, science-based facts cannot be challenged by vets who are desperate to keep declawing cats. And when the Americans learn that declawing causes more pain for longer - sometimes permanently - they might, just might, stop asking for it.
The reason for the pain is because the operation by design is inherently botched to which you add careless and uncaring surgery sometimes (a lot perhaps) causing splinters and shards of bone being left in the paws.
