It's been three years since our last one, and we hope you will spend just a couple of minutes with our latest 2023 Tripawds Quality of Life Survey.

Hurry! This survey closes on Friday, December 1, 2023

Your Input in Tripawds 2023 Quality of Life Survey Matters


Few people intentionally join the Tripawds community. As you know, most members join because their cat or dog is diagnosed with a limb cancer. When amputation is the only way to save a pet's life, knowing what to expect feels scary and uncertain.


And that's exactly why your input in the Tripawds Quality of Life Survey matters so much. It's your insight that helps people see there is hope. Your answers helps a future Tripawd parent get a glimpse of what it's like to go through amputation surgery, recovery, and life on three legs.


Parents of amputee cats and dogs, we need you. Please take a minute to fill out the 2023 Tripawds Quality of Life Survey.

Tripawds 2023 Quality of Life Survey helps three-legged cats and dogs
Help dog and cat amputee parents with your answers.

The goals of our 2023 cat and dog amputee survey are to:

  1. Inform the veterinary community about Tripawd pet parent satisfaction rates.
  2. Comfort future Tripawds members with data that shows how how other cats and dogs lived life after amputation surgery.

Please Help Future Tripawd Parents


Veterinary medicine is evolving all the time. That's why it's so important to keep our shared experiences current, so that veterinarians and pet parents alike can discover what being a Tripawd can be like.


YOU have the experience and expertise to help show the world what the three-legged life is really like! Help a potential Tripawd parent know what to expect after surgery. Or if someone wants to adopt a Tripawd, your input can help them too!


We have two Tripawds Quality of Life questionnaires; one for cats and one for dogs. All answers matter. Your Tripawd can be presently living, or wearing angel wings. If you have multiple Tripawds, please fill out a survey for each one. Thank you!

Hurry! This survey closes on Friday, December 1, 2023

Thanks for the survey. There are some tiny glitches where it forces you to answer a question that you have already said NA to . The clinic one and the Vet overweight one. I just put the answers in the text.

Now that I think about it, in the beginning he did not seem to be aware of any limits on his mobility, (think bobcat chasing, wall leaping) then he went through a couple of weeks where he thought about a situation and decided he couldn't do something like go down the front stairs. We let him decide and provided an alternative route.. Now he's about mastered everything he wants to do and chooses the harder or easier route depending on how he feels, and he wanders around the farm just like he used to. If he gets tired, he just lies down for a while. He's a sensible boy! Suzanne and Nicholas Newf.

Sorry about that, thank you for letting me know and taking time to answer it!

Sharing Nicholas' experience is so educational for all of us. It's such a joy to know how well he is doing. YAY for Mr. Sensible!

At the request of folks who adopted a Tripawd, we created another survey! Here is a link.

I'm glad to see the adoption survey added.  There was nothing I could contribute to the originals - they were really more of a survey of surgical and recovery experience, IMO.  Quality of life should refer to life after recovery and how our pets handle every day.
