Proud To Be ProClaw
Health & Harmony Animal Hospital is one of a select few veterinary practices in all of the United States to advocate for their feline patients by choosing not to offer declawing procedures. We are proud to stand with the many animal welfare organizations who maintain a Pro-Claw stance and support the growing movement against this unnecessary procedure. Instead, we focus on how to help our clients compassionately manage their cat’s claws and how they can minimize scratching damage.
Scratching is a natural behavior for cats. It marks a cat’s territory with the release of a scent from glands on their feet; muscles in the toes and legs are also strengthened with this activity. Stretching up and scratching downward on vertical objects (like the sides of upholstered furniture) just plain feels good to a cat. While these behaviors are totally appropriate in the feline world, they may not jive with your world – which is why you have options!
