huntergreen these chips, at least the ones my dogs have, are not stationary, so i doubt they cause cancer at a specific sight.

That sounds like it might have been hemangiosarcoma. I lost my GSD to this too. I don't think a microchip would have anything to do with this.
Unfortunately GSDs have a high incidence of this type of cancer.

Next day grieving i gave online search for a replacement pup I found a 10 week old who's Pedigree included Ursus vom Batu as his grandfather, I looked at me deceased GSD Pedigree and sure enough his grandfather was also Ursus vom Batu, bought him that day. I now have a 15 month old monster but he has some of Cutter's bloodline

Shade All my animals are chipped, even my cats and I did research it first and didn't feel that the concern was big enough to outweight the benefits.

Chicagocanine There are some documented instances of tumors forming around or next to a microchip, but it is pretty rare. In no way does a chip "severely increase" the cancer risk.

Jax08 Our Boxer was chipped as a puppy. She was 2 weeks shy of 14 when we lost her. Jax is chipped and 6. I do not believe it causes systematic cancer.

jocoyn I think a whole lot of dogs are getting cancer and so many different things could be the smoking gun.

gsdsar There have been some reports if dogs and cats developing a sarcoma at the chip site. The risk in minimal(sorry about your dog). But it does not extend generally to systemic cancers.

Cancer fron chiping?

I heard on the news that putting a chip in your dog severely increases your pet's chances of getting cancer. I only bring this up because I had to put down my all to young 8.5 year old GSD. He was chipped and got the big C.

Anybody else hear anything to this effect.
