Ehh I think it's irresponsible to not microchip your pet. No matter how safe you are, there's always a chance your dog can get away from you (hell my parents old dog almost escaped through the dryer vent in our laundry room). And no matter how much you love your little fluffykins and think he's an absolute angel/pseudo-child, he's property and you are responsible for anything he does.

Over the lifetime of your pet, the expense to get them microchipped is almost nothing, and can save the day if something happens to the animal.

Around here, if a dog isn't chipped, they go away in like 72 hours.  They try to contact you for five days if it has a chip.

Very much worth any perceived big brother nonsense to get Angus back if he gets loose.

We have these things called dog tags with the owners name, phone number, and address on them.  Highly effective.

Sometimes dogs get out of their collars though, and then you can have real trouble.  They can't get away from their chip, though.

I agree. What they should do is use these microchips to track down the idiots who let their unfixed animals roam around, and fine them.

There's simply no reason not to fix your animal unless you are breeding them. And in that case, a special license should be required and you should have to take responsibility for keeping your intact animals confined. License fees could pay for inspections of breeders and paying for the unwanted pet problem.

Seriously though, did you read some of the 'Related Stories' headlines?

Hell, pound puppies are usually already chipped, and the dogs can't slip a chip like they can a collar.

I gotta ask though, why 2 chips in your boxer? Is it in case he grows a pod puppy out of his shoulder?

This. Here in Sweden every vet and the police have scanners for the chip.

My dog ran away once, when the wife and I were at her parents. He always hangs around, chillin' in the yard, but this time he simply vanished. It was in the middle of nowhere, and we looked for five hours before I gave up and called the police. Spent forever on phone giving a detailed report, and literally seconds after I hang up the little bastard comes bouncing in through the patio door. God dammit!

Yes, but it's also stops dog theft too. If your dog is taken odds are the collar will be removed and trashed. If the thief takes it to the vet, they're required to call if the microchip doesn't match who brought it in. If you legally sell/give away your dog, you're also expected to update the microchip information with the new owner.

I know that I've read before about an increased risk of several health and behavioral problems in spayed or neutered animals, which isn't surprising considering the role of the removed organs in hormone production. What's your opinion on de-clawing cats?

Some believe that micro-chipping your pet can lead to cancer at the site. I don't chip my pets because I love them. I also didn't shoot my children up with formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, thimerosal, and polysorbate 80, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, formaldehyde,ormaldehyde, aluminum phosphate, ammonium sulfate, and thimerosa, aluminum hydroxide, and thimerosal which are a few of the toxins in vaccines. All is well with my loved ones. You see, real love means making an informed choice and not just following peer pressure unthinkingly. I realize I'm saying this to the herd on Fark but most of you think you a above average in intelligence. You should really learn to think before you follow.

If it really was done with a shovel, technically you could say "spaded".

The government won't have to force anyone, they'll volunteer. Hell, they'll line up for the opportunity, and pay for it with smiles on their faces.

If you've already got 9/10 people, why bother with an elaborate chipping/tracking plan?

I am fine with requiring it but if the goverment mandates everyone must do something and its cost more than say 20 of what ever that nation uses for currency that the goverment either has to pay for it or subsidize it so folks with lo9w incomes can afford to comply with the law.

If your pet doesn't have a chip, you really don't want your pet. You're just feeding a glorified stray.

The solution isn't better regulation of dogs!  Its better to just add more dogs.

If stray dogs are a problem, the real solution is to put more stray dogs in place to help self-regulate the stray dog problem.  If more people in London walked around with packs of stray dogs, then their stray dogs would deter problems created by other stray dogs, and there wouldn't be a stray dog problem at all.

So you don't microchip your dogs because "some believe" it can cause cancer?  Some what?

And you don't give your children access to any vaccines because there's apparently toxins in some of them?

And then you say "REAL LOVE means making an informed choice"?  Bwahaha.

Can real love find your lost dog?  Can real love save your children from meningitis?   To me, real love is doing everything you can to ensure your kids grow up happy and healthy, instead of foisting your own bizarre and unfounded beliefs on them, to their possible future detriment.

Way to keep infromed: "In the UK where there has been an informal reporting system for adverse reactions for over ten years only two of the 3.7 million implanted animals recorded on the Petlog database have been reported as developing a tumour at the site of implantation. In one of these cases the pathologist reported that the transponder was incidental to the tumour formation."
