Declawing / City The Kitty Has Been Silenced

Today is Caturday.
It is also day 142 of being silenced for speaking out against declawing and for trying to educate the public about the facts about this inhumane amputation procedure.
This action against is unprecedented, very serious, and wrong. We've been nothing but respectful, truthful, and educational in our campaigns and have ALWAYS asked all of you to do the same. This has been very difficult for my mom in many ways.

This silence only hurts our cause and the poor cats who are having their toe bones amputated.

On May 4th we are having our Do No Harm Day. You can ALL join us, even if you can't attend the rallies in NY or SoCal. Please help us.
Here's the link to more info-

I also made some cool t-shirts and other items to help get the word out about our cause. You can pick one up here and they should be mailed to you in time for our Do No Harm Day if you get your order in by April 22 -

A person has to have SOME trust in a vet.  If you're all the time thinking the vet is out to screw you, it's either you with the problem (some people just have that attitude), or you need a new vet.


THAT is exactly the way I feel. I'll never put down someone that's willing to spend the money for the betterment of their pet. It's just wrong to tell someone that they're wasting money on their furry, scaled, and feathered friends.

My two cents, regardless of age, no animal of mine would go under anesthesia without a full blood work up called a super chem at my vet. the super chem includes the T-4 and Free T-4, and CBC, plus all the other things.  I think they use Antech.

But yes, most people opt for in house testing which gives a very basic look at kidneys and livers, maybe white and red blood cell?


I agree with you.  However, I don't know this person.  I don't know this person's finances.  The vet is covering the "basics." 
I was TRYING to make suggestions, but at the same time not make the person feel like a piece of poo... if s/he chose to go with the basics.

I seem to have lost the plot here. You wrote to your vet?  Or? What am I missing?

Sorry.  A conversation going on elsewhere.  I was TRYING to answer the person's questions.

Now a full panel is somewhere around $250--in 2016 and 2017. Not sure about the urinalysis, but we'll be doing that next time they have their actual senior panels starting in a couple of years I guess. I'm not even sure when they're supposed to have those seniors. I guess at age nine?

Edit: I'll also be having the complete thyroid done then too, so I don't know how much that adds.

Okay I've re read this three times. I think I finally figured out that your original question is based on a discussion you were having with someone elsewhere about blood work and dentals and a dog.

My two cents, regardless of age, no animal of mine would go under anesthesia without a full blood work up called a super chem at my vet. the super chem includes the T-4 and Free T-4, and CBC, plus all the other things.  I think they use Antech.

I use "you" in a general sense.
