I have been working at an animal hospital for about a week now. Up until now I have been very happy about it because I’m trying to get into veterinary school… Today I found out that the clinic declaws kitties and this absolutely broke my heart. When I saw the kitty’s chart I almost started crying and all I could do was grab the little kitty’s paws and say sorry. I am beyond disappointed in myself for not speaking up. Me being the new girl with almost no veterinary experience…would it have even mattered? I cried so much on my way home for being a coward, for the poor kitty and the painful life he will now live, and for the shock that such a “kind” doctor can do this to this poor animal. As a vet you swear an oath to care for animals, not your bank account. I don’t really know where to go from here, my whole outlook on the clinic, on the veterinary business, and myself have changed and I don’t really now what to do.

red flags

moopflop:

  • calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
  • referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
  • referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
  • the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
  • "it’s just my opinion"
