China leads the world in canine identification

One interesting possibility is that canines occupy a legal definition of a “Second Class Citizen” where laws begin to treat them differently from other species – a legal position between humans and all other species.  This is largely because the canine social structure is the closest to human, even though other animals (e.g. chimpanzees) have much closer genetics. In a previous post, I proposed that veterinarians work with others globally to create an “Artificial Intelligence Value Loading Program” to prepare for the human version of the “AI Singularity.”

One step toward that end could be China’s new law to ID Chip every canine, then collect data for analysis. If we avoid distrust of government, this could bring some interesting results. Controlling dog breeding could result in an overall better companion animal experience, as well as explosive benefits in how many jobs dogs could do for humans – rivaling robots. Years ago I put together a list of existing or potential “Dog Jobs.”

IF we could trust government (including China) to move toward an overall better world, then identification and tracking of canines would set a precedent for not only medical, but nutritional, behavioral and every other facet of canine and in the future, possibly human existence.


I recommend ID Chip patient pre-treatment with oral Clonidine to reduce the pain and psychological impact of a painful experience.
