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.
