The Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET) is a joint project of University of Liverpool and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA).

SAVSNET are doing research into how we decide on the healthcare of our cats and dogs, and the vets side of this as well. This is an ideal opportunity for everyone to say why they do or do not vaccinate, titre test, etc.

The research will be Shona spending an hour talking to you, and recording that. This conversation can be video link, or face to face if you live near enough. So, Video call for me in Dorset.

Below are two SAVSNET files. SAVSNET 1 is the explanation letter. SAVSNET 2 is the consent form, but I'm guessing that they would take it if the form were copy and pasted into an email to Shona.

In memory of my Alfie, I would ask everyone on the group to partake in this research.
