    Default Online Survey about coat characteristics and changes

    Please take time to help this final year vet student..................

    An online survey to investigate coat characteristics and changes in Spaniel Breeds.

    This online survey is part of a veterinary final year research project investigating hair coat characteristics and changes in spaniel breeds, and how owners feel about them.

    If you own a spaniel I would really appreciate you participating in this 5-minute survey.
    Owners of both neutered and unneutered spaniels are required for this survey. If you have multiple spaniels please feel free to complete a questionnaire for each dog.

    I submitted two!

    Jeeeze it really worries me that people seriously take into consideration the effect on coat when deciding whether or not to spay/neuter

    I find it interesting the questions I was asked. They all relate to coat change after 4 months.
    As a pet owner, I would never consider coat as a factor either in deciding to neuter. But I think the survey is interesting in that it asks if I noticed a coat change at 4 months. No, I didn't notice it then, but Lucky was neutered there was a clear change in the quality of his coat. No question about it. But that was at over 1 year old.

    Answered for all four of mine - like everyone else coat change never factored into my decision to neuter/spay. And do you think I can remember back to when they were four months old and whether their coat changed? Hah!!! Fat chance!!

    I've done one for jazz. Funnily enough, I have a family member who recently trained in dog grooming and when i was discussing Jazz being spayed it was met with gasps of surprise "but it will ruin her coat!!" She was spayed in December and I've not noticed any change whatsoever, but even if I did it wouldn't matter to me as I think the benefits of spaying is far more important than vanity.

    she also ruins her coat all by herself quite regularly by rolling in horse poo but that's another story!!
