The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and One Health Commission are now gathering voluntary pet health information through pet owner surveys. The survey is being conducted by One Health and the collected data will be collated and hosted by the EPA’s EnviroAtlas.
The concept is to collate where cats and dogs live and their related environmental factors with common cat and dog health issues. The goal is to develop one of the largest health and disease databases for dogs and cats across the United States.
If you’d like to participate in the survey, you can fill out the 26 question survey form in about 6 minutes, once for each pet you have:

Notes: The survey is geared for one pet at a time. If you have multiple pets, you can fill the survey once for each pet. The survey is available now until January 2020 or until the number of surveys reach 300,000. You do not need to fill out a survey for each pet. It’s fine to just fill out a single survey for only one pet in your household.
The survey is painless, free, and does not collect any personal information. Recommended!
