Cat Declaw

The CVMA believes that medical decisions should be made by clients in consultation with their veterinarian and is opposed to these ordinances. Veterinarians must be allowed to counsel their clients on all available medical treatments that are in the best interest of their patient.  The unintended consequences of cat declaw bans will be cat relinquishment and euthanasia.
