PDSA launches 10th PAW report

PDSA has announced its annual PAW (PDSA animal welfare) report will be marking its 10 year anniversary.

The animal charity said its report is the “most comprehensive insight into pet wellbeing in the UK”, and the group is now encouraging vets, vet nurses and students to partake in the online survey before 31 January. 

The PAW Report is a nationwide survey that “assesses the state of our pet nation”. It is produced in conjunction with YouGov, and since its launch in 2010, over 73,000 pet owners, veterinary professionals and children have shared their thoughts on a range of issues facing UK pets. 

Vicki Betton, PDSA policy and campaigns manager, said: “For the last nine years, the PAW report has provided valuable insight into the reality of pet wellbeing in the UK. 

“We’re excited to be celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the PAW report in 2020, marking a decade of measuring key insights into the welfare of our nation’s pets.” 

She added: “The report helps us deliver a robust evidence-base for our education programmes, campaigns and collaborative work, and enables us to track the impact of initiatives on the pet wellbeing issues which are of most concern to the veterinary profession. 

“It also provides an excellent opportunity for everyone to voice their opinions and have their say. Our key trends and insights will continue to inform our vital campaigns, to improve the health of pets across the country.”
