Veterinary Healthcare Providers

We need your help. Please take the 2019 annual Pet Nutrition & Weight Management Survey and ask your veterinary team and clients to participate. After 12 consecutive years of conducting an annual prevalence survey, we have moved data collection to every two years. By measuring pet obesity prevalence on even-numbered years, we will be able to more accurately monitor trends and improve data analysis. We will continue the pet owner and veterinary professionals survey each year. This survey has proved valuable to both the veterinary profession and pet industry and has inspired change and innovation in pet food and treats, technological advancements, and scientific research. We hope you will continue to support our efforts! Veterinary Clinic sign-up here. 

Pet Owners

Your responses help APOP fight against the growing trend of pet obesity and improve pet nutrition. Please share the survey with your family and friends. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention is a non-profit organization not sponsored or affiliated with any pet food or pharmaceutical company.
