dc.description.abstractThe internet as a source of information on pet food products and pet nutrition is rising among the public. Access to reliable information is questionable and misunderstanding of the information presented on pet food labels have led to misconceptions about commercial pet food products. This project aimed to bridge this gap by developing a web-based platform dedicated to providing reliable information on pet food products and nutrition of cats and dogs. A web structure was designed using a mind map model, and a survey for pet owners was created with the objective of gathering current information on the sources of nutrition information sought after from cat and dog owners. The survey was approved by the Institutional Review Board for Human Participant in Research at Cornell University and will be tested among the Cornell University community prior to being administered to the wider population. Some of the fundamental information on pet nutrition and a section on pet nutrition myths was created the website content. The collected data from the wider survey of pet owners will guide the development of tailored web contents. Ultimately, this web-based nutrition information center will provide pet owners with factual and science-based information on pet nutrition.en_US
