The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) conducted a 2023 Pet Owner Attitude Survey to explore attitudes towards Veterinary care post-COVID-19. The survey reveals that a majority of pet owners prefer in-person establishment of the veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR) and want a licensed veterinarian to oversee their pet’s care. Respondents prioritize their pet’s health and safety, with 72% preferring to meet a veterinarian in person before allowing them to care for their pet.

The survey also suggests resistance to trends advocating for a midlevel position and eliminating in-person VCPR requirements for telemedicine. Overall, the findings emphasize pet owners’ preference for in-person and veterinarian-led care, emphasizing the significance of physical examinations in providing high-quality animal health care. The survey involved 1,000 pet owners across the United States.
