Vets who vaccinate cats and dogs are being asked to contribute to the creation of tools to help clinicians optimise consultations by participating in an online survey.

The Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine at The University of Nottingham is appealing to vets to help with an MSD Animal Health-funded research project that aims to optimise preventive health care for companion animals by providing an evidence-based approach.

Information gathering

The survey gives vets the opportunity to share information about booster vaccination consultations; namely:

  • what they do in them
  • the tools they find most useful
  • what pet owners expect

A spokesman said: “The survey should take 10 minutes to complete and the results will be used to develop tools that can help you make the most of preventive health care consultations.”
