Default Avid is denying chip caused problems!

So, I finally got a hold of Dr. Silverman today at Avid. Even though the reports came back from Kansas State Univ. that the microchip caused the scar tissue growth, Avid is denying it and says they need to look into it further.

Dr. Siverman is suggesting that some other trauma to the shoulder or a vaccine has caused it. Merlot hasn't had a vaccine in his shoulder area, they are always given in his back leg. I think I would remember a trauma to the shoulder that would cause that much scar tissue.

Oh my gosh are you kidding!?!? I suppose they don't want a bad rep or whatever, but that's rediculous. I would keep on them and work with your vet or whoever will help you collect more proof that it is the chip and no vaccinations or trauma. Good luck hun!

Typical of a big corporation, they have to deny, deny rather than admit there is an issue. I have been terrified of this very thing since the chip became so popular. I am so glad you have shared all of this with us. Maybe someone will avoid a problem in the future.
