In honor of National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, Oct. 13, the Association for Pet Obesity Awareness (APOP) is calling all cat and dog owners to participate in an online survey. The APOP hopes to gain insight about how veterinary teams can help keep pets healthy by collecting data on pets’ lifestyle, exercise, and nutrition.

Survey respondents are asked to pick and consider one of their pets, either a cat or dog, when completing the survey. The survey is open to the public—including you. After you finish taking the survey, don’t forget to pass the link to your pet-owning colleagues, as well as your clients.
