The ProQOL development was directed towards human care providers and therefore the language in the assessment reflects human directed support and care. As the ProQOL is validated as written, we are not at the liberty to modify the language. However, we feel it is important to provide relevancy to those professionals dedicated to animal health and welfare and therefore have provided additional language suggestions applicable to the veterinary profession.
