TOXO Knowledge Survey

Do you wonder why this rat is completely fearless of that cat?  This survey will allow you to learn the answer to this question!

What will be done during this study?

Toxoplasma gondii is a common parasite found all over the world. It is transmitted through cats. This study is designed to help address misconceptions cat-owners have about this parasite, and investigate whether cats who are exposed to this parasite modify their behavior.

We will ask you to complete 13 questions in this online survey to evaluate your understanding of cat Toxoplasmosis. It will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete. 

Your participation in this survey will allow you to learn about the epidemiology, risk factors, prevention, and popular misconceptions with respect to cat Toxoplasmosis. However, you may not get any direct benefit from taking this survey.

After two weeks of participating in one or all of this research’s assessments, we will ask you to complete a second online survey. This may help us understand your thoughts about this research. It may also help us understand whether participating in this research has altered your views about your cat’s behavior and your knowledge of cat Toxoplasmosis.
