A fluffy bundle of life, love, and enthusiasm named Charlie Brown was laid to rest last week, the victim of a microchip implant gone horribly wrong.

Getting humans chipped wouldn't be a huge change IMO, just like the credit cards.
We are almost living in a cashless country. They will just try to make it easier. Instead of carrying cash, credit cards, IDs, drivers license, SS, etc. You will just need a simple chip.
Dogs have to be chipped,It's not hard to make one for humans. Verichip actually has a website saying that it will increase your security.
Aron Russo even talked about this.
IMO it's just a matter of time.

more treatments sold, too?
interesting how they continually gauge the reactions, isn't it? i mean if it went all well for them would they keep doing that ?

There are a couple of issues here
1) so there is a risk
2) is it risky on humans too
Human chipping maybe a long way off but there is the first stages of talk about this. EG if your children get lost it will make it easier to locate parents.

This is very sad, and im just as puzzled as the Vet is.
How on earth you could hemorrhage to death from such a small wound.
Even if it did sever muscle on the scapula linked to a major blood vessel why didn't the Vet open it up and suture the wound?
