As part of our research into antibiotic use and resistance, we’re looking at what drives antibiotic prescribing, use and compliance. It’s a complex subject and needs to be approached from a variety of angles. One angle is looking at what pet owners perceive or want, as this can be an important influencing factor. To address this, we’ve launched a survey designed to gather information about pet owners’ perceptions and preferences when treating their pets for infection. The study is funded by the Ontario Veterinary College Pet Trust. The survey is voluntary and anonymous.
If you own or care for a dog and are 18 years of age or older, you are invited to participate in this survey. Full details and ethics approval information are available here: https://uoguelph.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5uUBn8xoG9kBLeJ
