New York just became the first state in the U.S. to totally ban feline declawing. This week we’re delighted to be joined again by feline expert Dr. Margie Scherk to discuss what the new law means for veterinary professionals, how these measures have been received in her home country Canada, and why she believes veterinarians need to take a more active role in the declaw debate. Hosts Dr. Ernie Ward and Beckie Mossor, RVT take a deep dive with Dr. Scherk into the complex ethical and moral challenges of elective surgical procedures, the impact declawing has on the entire staff, and how public perception toward declawing has shifted over the past 20 years. This is an important topic for your entire veterinary team.
