Pets during the COVID confinement (UK)


Welcome to this survey on the impact of the official COVID-19 confinement on people's pets.

We are investigating the effect the official confinement is having on the relationship people have with their pets, as well as the behaviour of pets and their quality of life.

This study is being carried out by veterinary behaviourists from the Royal Veterinary College in London, the Affinity Foundation for Animals and Health in Barcelona (Department of Psychiatry at the Autonomous University of Barcelona), and the University of Pisa.

Please help us, the survey will take less than 10-15 minutes.

Although some demographic information is being collected the survey and its results will be completely anonymous.
If you feel that answering questions relating to your wellbeing and that of your pet will cause you distress then please do not continue
The results of the survey will be used for scientific purposes, and to develop ways to help people and their pets during the ongoing movement restrictions.
