A survey about how you feed your cat

How do you feed your cat? Dr. Tony Buffington, my good friend, Fear Free colleague, and clinical professor at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, is asking for your help in responding to a short online survey about how you feed your cat.

The surevey should take only around ten minutes, and will help us learn more about how people feed their cats (and you might learn about new ways to feed your cat!). The results of this study may be published as part of our efforts to improve the health and welfare of cats.

If you have a cat, please take the survey now! And share it with your cat-owning friends and family, too.

Thank you, friends!

Survey: What would you like to know about your pets?

I recently surveyed the subscribers to my mailing list about what kind of information they most wanted me to write about. Now I’m working with our Fear Free Happy Homes website to create all kinds of resources to give you the information you actually want… in the form of classes, videos, interactive games, connection with veterinarians and other experts — pretty much anything you can imagine, we’ll consider!

If you could take just a few minutes to respond to two short questions, I’d be very grateful. And so will the pets and people who will benefit from these resources.

The survey is here.

Thank you, friends!

Survey: Would you ever foster a pet? (Or have you ever?)

They say “fostering saves lives,” and that’s absolutely true. It’s one of the most important things you can do to help homeless animals find a new family to love them forever.

Maddie’s Fund and the University of North Carolina-Charlotte have teamed up to understand how people feel about fostering pets. If you currently foster, or have ever fostered, could I ask you to take a few minutes and complete this short survey?

Anyone who takes the approximately 15 minute survey will be entered to win one of twenty $25 Visa gift cards!

Take the survey here and please pass along to others. It closes on August 25.

Thank you, friends!

Survey: Should veterinary leaders support Fear Free animal shelters?

Do you have 60 seconds to help frightened pets in shelters?

In March I’ll be meeting with the leaders in the veterinary community to discuss the Fear Free initiative, and how we want to make veterinary care free of stress, fear, and anxiety for pets.

But I also want to bring them fully on board with making animal shelters Fear Free as well, both because animals should not suffer and because anxiety and stress causes a high rate of medical and behavioral illness in sheltered pets.

I need your answers to three simple questions to show veterinary leaders that the animal-loving public wants support for Fear Free shelters from them!

Please take this very short survey — it will take you less than one minute. And ask everyone you know who cares about animals to take it, too. Homeless pets in shelters are counting on us to stand up for them!
