Page 1: About this survey

Thank you for participating in this study, led by Dr. Silke Salavati from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh. This project aims to understand the practices and outcomes around performing Faecal Microbiota Transplantations (or FMTs, sometimes also called transfaunation) in dogs in both primary care, referral practices, and specialist services within veterinary hospitals.

It will be equally valuable for us to receive answers from vets that do FMTs frequently than from vets who don't perform this at all!

You will answer questions about the type and location (by country) of your practice, service or hospital, the types of canine cases seen, indications, procedures performed and outcomes observed when performing FMTs. This survey is completely anonymous, as no identifyable data (e.g. no name, email addresses or IP addresses) is collected.

Participation is voluntary. You can opt out at any point until the "finish" button at the end of the survey is clicked.

We would be grateful if only 1 person per practice or referral service within a hospital could fill in this survey. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes if FMT is performed at your practice/ hospital/ service, much shorter if it is not (yet) performed.

Should you have any enquiries about the project or data collection, please do not hesitate to email Dr. Salavati:

Thank you very much for your help with this.
