Companion animals and well-being during the Covid-19 pandemic survey

The University of the West of Scotland  is working in collaboration with the WALTHAM Petcare Science Institute and the Virginia Commonwealth University to investigate the role of companion animals in mental wellbeing and loneliness during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The aim of the research is to understand the relationship between companion animal guardianship and people’s wellbeing. The team involved in the study is particularly interested in the experiences of people who keep fish, as little research has looked into the relationship between keeping fish and mental wellbeing. We invite you to take part in our survey as part of this research.

Anyone (+18 years) can take part, whether or not you currently have any companion animals. The survey is completely anonymous and should take around 25-30 minutes to complete. More information and the online survey can be found here.
