Luckily, I have totally ignored the NM state law that requires me to chip my pets. Also, I have a cool vet who never bugs me about it. I wouldn't chip myself, or a child (if I had one), why would I chip my pets? Yeah, I know all the reasons they give for it, but I don't buy them. My pets are not going to run off or get lost and they are not going to be picked up because animal control stays in the city and never comes out where I live. I see no reason for it and I am glad I never did it.
