When Praline had her transmission overhauled, I had them install a microchip thingie. When I left the vet with her, they gave me an envelope which I just came across Friday night.
Turns out, you have to send in a $10 activation fee and also a $14.99 annual subscription payment on the microchip.
I dunno why, but this sort of bugs me. I mean, what if they decide they want to charge $100 a year or something? They've already done the data entry and the info they store is a very tiny bit of information that's not charging them a whit to store - this seems a little disturbing to me.
Anyone know anything about this stuff?
What if you moved and you didn't get your subscription update info, and what if your dog is lost - will they call your cell and say you have to pay a huge fee to get the info on the whereabouts of your dog?
The annoying thing about this is that I invested $50 each in my two dogs to reduce the number of uncertainties about what happens to them, and now there's an whole new plethora of crap to vex over with regard to their well-being. Am I silly to have bothered?
