Duly noted. Allow me to rephrase: Any vet that will declaw a cat without first explaining to the cat owner what it entails (mutilation of the cat's feet), the complications that can arise (a lifetime of pain, litter box aversion, biting, depression, etc), and providing alternative suggestions such as training the cat, providing scratching posts, using Soft Paws, etc, is not a vet with the cat's best interest in mind. Top that with the indifferent attitude of this vet, and it would be a really really good idea to find a new one that actually cares.
