Tenth Annual Pet Obesity Awareness Day Survey

Friday, September 16, 2016  
Share |

On Wednesday, October 12, 2016, the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention will conduct our Tenth Annual Pet Obesity Awareness Day survey.


In order to do this, we need your help. On October 12, we are asking U.S. veterinary clinics to record simple information for each pet that you perform a routine examination on that day. How many pets and the detail of information you obtain is up to you. Obviously, more is better, but our goal is to determine as accurately as possible the number of pets in the United States that are overweight or obese. If you are unable to conduct the survey on October 12, any time during October is fine. Our past experience demonstrates that this should add no more than 1–2 minutes to your normal physical examination routine.


If you are interested, simply complete the form and we will contact you with handouts and instructions to complete the study. This study is independent of any and all corporate sponsorships or involvements. It is important that this study remain neutral to protect the integrity and interpretation of results. If you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns feel free to contact me directly: or 910-620-5756.


We'll also be giving away a free iPad Mini to a lucky clinic! For every 20 adult pets you collect data on, you'll receive an entry into a drawing for a FREE iPad Mini! 

Please help us in our fight against obesity.
