Chelonian welfare survey 2018
This survey is part of a research study investigating Chelonian welfare from both owner and veterinary staff perspectives. The study will explore the common welfare implications commonly seen within veterinary practices and if the popularity of keeping Chelonians plays a part in this. The results gained from the survey will provide information of how Veterinary Nurses can help assist in the promotion of animal welfare, in specific to Chelonians.
