If you own or care for a cat and are 18 years of age or older, you are invited to participate in this survey. The study is funded by the Ontario Veterinary College Pet Trust. The survey is voluntary and anonymous. The research is looking into antibiotic use and resistance, and what drives antibiotic prescription use and compliance. This complex subject needs to be approached from a variety of angles. One angle is looking at what pet owners perceive or want. This survey is designed to gather information about pet owners’ perceptions and preferences when treating their pets for an infection.
The survey, along with full details and ethics approval information, are available here:
The study's authors appreciate pet owner's help with this research. The previous study about antibiotic use in dogs (see an earlier post) provided some interesting and useful information. More details about that soon….
