Charles Acton, DVM, of Laguna Hills, CA|
His website boasts: "All of Dr. Acton's cats are declawed."
The website is outrageous and inaccurate. Here are some excerpts:
"It makes good sense to help the cat...be an acceptable member of the family. This may mean declawing...."
"Declawing is not cruel."
"Declawed cats are not defenseless."
"No cat is too old to be declawed."
"The rear feet can also be declawed...often at the same time that the front feet are done."
"The surgery involves the removal of the nails from the end of the feet (DHOS note: they fail to mention that declawing amputates bone and flesh at the joint on each "finger," not just the nail.)
"Don't be unhappy with your cat. Have it declawed."
