7. "The microchips have already been implanted in 1 million pets."

In the past year I was asked to adopt a cat that had this chip implanted, and I didn't want the chip in the animal. A search of the Internet said that they could be removed. So, I called all the local vets in town. Not one of them would even consider removing it. If it was removed, one of the receptionists said after consulting the vet, it would be very expensive, they said first it had to be located. Apparently they migrate. Upon further questioning, it was actually a refusal to remove it.


I meant to add, that if a hospital put one in me as a condition of service, I would want to make sure they included removal of it upon discharge.
