PDSA Says Ten Million Pets Missing Out On Healthcare

Published on March 3, 2011 by   ·   No Comments
A new report from veterinary charity, PDSA, which for the first time measures the wellbeing of our most popular household pets today reveals that the health and welfare needs of over ten million cats, dogs and rabbits across the UK are not being properly met. 

The PDSA Animal Wellbeing Report, produced in conjunction with YouGov, is the largest report of its kind. Over 11,000 owners were ‘scored’ (out of a possible 100) on how well they are looking after their pets according to the five welfare needs, that is environment, diet, behaviour, companionship and health, as defined by the Animal Welfare Act* . As a nation, owners scored an average of 63 out of a possible 100, with 48% of participants falling under the average which highlights a significant need for improvement in certain areas of animal health and welfare.
