Can Microchips Cause Cancer?

Aug 8th 2015 at 1:11 AM

Many pet owners believe the wrong notion that microchips can cause cancer. This belief has led some pet owners to have second thoughts about having their pets fitted with a microchip. Reading scientific articles and asking experts will help dispel myths about microchips and their potentially negative effects. Microchips are the best form of identification in pets. Many countries have specific policies regarding microchips on pets.

There have been studies conducted on mice where a possible link was observed between microchips and cancer. However, dogs and cats are a different species, and don’t share the same biological system with mice. Furthermore, results of the studies were not able to clearly establish that microchips are important predisposing factors of cancer.

Consult with your vet if you have any questions or concerns about microchips so you will be able to make an educated decision based on what you know. Read more valuable information about pets on this link.
