Abstract

We aim to develop a survey tool and accompanying research methodology that can be used across cultures and species to both quantify and differentiate aspects of human-animal interactions. Those aspects include: opportunities to share pathogens or commensals, health care activities, providing food, other economic services, entertainment and exercise, and social and emotional support.
