Re: Cardiac Pacemaker Disposal

From:Geoff McAuliffe

We recycle ours for use by veterinarians. There was a piece on 60 minutes or
20/20 last year on this topic. Seems lots of dogs need a pacemaker but the
owner does not have the $$$$ necessary for a new one so they get a rebuilt one
for a fraction of the cost of a new one.
