  • A 12-year-old neutered male onychectomized Ragdoll cat presented for a 3 day history of swelling and hemorrhagic purulent discharge on the first digit of the left manus. Radiographs revealed fragments of the third phalangeal bone (P3) present in the partially amputated digits with swelling adjacent to the P3 fragment on the first digit of the left manus.

  • Common feline problem behaviors: Destructive scratching [Journal Article]
    J Feline Med Surg. 2019 03; 21(3):235-243.DePorter TL, Elzerman AL
  • While scratching is a normal, beneficial behavior for cats, it can create problems when cats scratch objects owners deem as inappropriate. However, if veterinarians make suitable recommendations from the first veterinary visit, owners will be able to implement effective preventive strategies to develop good scratching patterns for life. Educating owners as to why cats scratch, how to guide cats t…
  • Pain and adverse behavior in declawed cats. [Journal Article]
    J Feline Med Surg. 2018 04; 20(4):280-288.Martell-Moran NK, Solano M, Townsend HG
  • Objectives The aim of this study was to assess the impact of onychectomy (declawing) upon subsequent development of back pain and unwanted behavior in cohorts of treated and control cats housed in two different locations. Methods This was a retrospective cohort study. In total, there was 137 declawed and 137 non-declawed cats, of which 176 were owned cats (88 declawed, 88 non-declawed) and 98 wer…
  • Digital flexor musculotendinous contracture in two Devon Rex cats. [Case Reports]
    J Feline Med Surg. 2017 Mar; 19(3):304-310.Thom LK, Pool RR, Malik R
  • Clinical summary: A 13-year-old, spayed Devon Rex with unilateral digital flexor musculotendinous contracture of the forelimb was treated by surgical tenotomy. The condition improved transiently, but recurred rapidly and became bilateral. Histopathologic analysis of necropsy tissues resulted in a morphologic diagnosis of fibromyositis of the antebrachial muscles causing contracture and flexural d…
  • Feline onychectomy: Current practices and perceptions of veterinarians in Ontario, Canada. [Journal Article]
    Can Vet J. 2016 Sep; 57(9):969-75.Kogan LR, Little SE, … Ruch-Gallie R
  • The objective of the study was to determine the proportion of practitioners from Ontario, Canada who perform onychectomy, identify the techniques utilized, and obtain practitioners views on the procedure. An anonymous survey was distributed to Ontario Veterinary Medical Association members. Mann-Whitney U-tests were used to compare responses of opinion questions related to declawing between respo…
  • Comparison of 3 methods of onychectomy. [Journal Article]
    Can Vet J. 2014 Mar; 55(3):255-62.Clark K, Bailey T, … Matthews A
  • The frequency of claw regrowth, bony remnants, and complications in cats that underwent forelimb onychectomy using laser, scalpel, or guillotine techniques were evaluated. Eighty-seven client-owned cats were recruited from 27 veterinary clinics in the Canadian Atlantic provinces. At least 1 year after onychectomy the cats underwent a physical examination, gait analysis, and radiographic evaluatio…
  • Comparison of the carbon dioxide laser and the radiofrequency unit for feline onychectomies. [Journal Article]
    J Am Anim Hosp Assoc. 2010 Nov-Dec; 46(6):375-84.Burns SM, Howerth EW, … Mauck JW
  • This study compared the collateral tissue damage and incisional bridging with granulation tissue via histopathological examination following feline onychectomy performed by radiofrequency (RF) and carbon dioxide (CO(2)) laser. Two cats were euthanized, and their digits were harvested for histopathological evaluation on days 1, 3, and 7 post-onychectomy. Each digit was evaluated for total lesion w…
  • Death or declaw: dealing with moral ambiguity in a veterinary hospital. [Journal Article]
    Soc Anim. 2005; 13(4):315-42.Atwood-Harvey D
  • The medical practice of declawing has received much political debate over the past few years. Yet, empirical and theoretical research on how this practice is maintained and the ethical positions of those who actually participate in this work is lacking. Drawing from 9 months of ethnographic fieldwork in a feline-specific veterinary hospital and open-ended interviews with veterinarians and staff, …
  • Effect of postoperative analgesic protocol on limb function following onychectomy in cats. [Randomized Controlled Trial]
    J Am Vet Med Assoc. 2005 Jul 01; 227(1):89-93.Romans CW, Gordon WJ, … Conzemius MG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that limb function following onychectomy is significantly better in cats treated with fentanyl transdermally or butorphanol i.m. than in cats treated with bupivacaine topically. Regardless of the analgesic regimen, limb function was still significantly reduced 12 days after surgery, suggesting that long-term analgesic treatment should be considered for cats undergoing onychectomy. Irrigation of the surgical incisions with bupivacaine prior to wound closure cannot be recommended as the sole method for providing postoperative analgesia in cats undergoing onychectomy.
  • Bilateral flexor tendon contracture following onychectomy in 2 cats. [Case Reports]
    Can Vet J. 2005 Mar; 46(3):244-6.Cooper MA, Laverty PH, Soiderer EE
  • Two cats presented with bilateral flexor tendon contracture following onychectomy. This previously unreported complication proved to be painful and debilitating. Deep digital flexor tenectomy successfully resolved the problem. Twelve months after surgery, the first cat remains free of complications. The second cat recovered full limb function, but died of unrelated causes.
