Thank you for taking the time and choosing to participate in this survey!  It should take between 5 and 15 minutes to complete.

My name is Alesha Diniz and I am studying Veterinary Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in London, England.  As part of my course, I am investigating UK bird owner satisfaction with their avian veterinary care. The data collected will help provide insight into the veterinary client experience and may contribute to how veterinarians conduct business with clients in the future, improving bird care and welfare.

Participation in this survey is fully optional. All participants will remain anonymous as no personal identifying data will be collected. All raw data is confidential and will only be seen by myself and my supervisor. However, the  data collected will be used for my project and may contribute to a scientific journal article.  You can withdraw from the survey while taking it at any time by closing the browser; if you complete the survey, but at a subsequent time wish to have your answers removed, you can contact me at the email below and your survey answers will be deleted.
