Florida vets seek microchipping monopoly

The Orlando Sentinel's Animal Crazy blog posts here on a proposal currently pending before the Florida Board of Veterinary Medicine to bar animal control agencies and shelters from microchipping animals. The Board is set to consider the proposal at its March 18th meeting. The ASPCA has launched a campaign opposing the proposal, asserting that microchips are an important tool in reuniting pets with their owners after disasters and tracking lost animals.
