Can you help with a Cat Nutrition study?

Friday, January 18, 2019

Can you help?

Can you help support a student at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh, with the aim of completing a research project into feline nutrition? It is hoped that the results obtained through this survey will help to advise pet food manufacturers, veterinarians and owners on better care of cats. 

The survey is open to all cat owners over the age of 18. There are 30 questions about feline nutrition and we estimate it should take you 15 minutes to complete.

Anonymous data acquired from this study will be held in the USA, subject to US data protection laws, but will only be analysed by vet professionals and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh.  

By completing and submitting this questionnaire, you give permission for the data to be used for research and publication.

The identity of individual responses will remain anonymous throughout data analysis and no data will be passed onto third parties. The survey engine collects IP addresses under GPDR, however the researchers will not have access to these.
