Abstract

Unless practices are running a screening programme to detect disease, veterinarians rely on owners to recognise abnormal signs and present their animal to them for examination and diagnosis. Common age-related diseases often present with similar clinical signs
such as polydipsia, weight loss and reduced willingness to exercise.
The aim of this survey was to ascertain internet users’ perception of the seriousness of some of the signs often associated with common age-related disorders. A pop-up survey was designed for visitors to a busy animal health website (www.provet.co.uk).
