I had my cat declawed on Jan 4 (3 weeks ago!) She has one paw pad that became infected, so last week I brought her in for a check up- she was given a refill on pain meds and antibiotics. Her paw pad has stopped oozing, but it is still looking very rough and she holds her paw up in pain. We limit her activity, use the recommended Yestereday's News litter, and give her the meds religiously. I am bringing her back in tomorrow.
My question is, do you think I am justified in refusing to pay for any further treatment offered to her? We have invested over $400 on this procedure and I feel that, since it it only one paw pad that there are so many issues with, the problem was in the operation rather than in our after care of her.
Please- don't lecture me about the evils of declawing. I weighed the pros and cons and came to a decision. Thank you for all of your help and suggestions!
