Diet - the need for a suitable diet
Behaviour - the need to be able to express normal behaviour
Companionship - the need to live with, or apart from, other animals
Health - the need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease

Rating is based on an index score out of 100. Scores were calculated by the source as follows:
"Respondents were surveyed about each of the five welfare needs, in direct relation to their pet and their level of knowledge in each area. Their answers were then scored against care scenarios based on professional advice from PDSA and using information from published Government Codes of Practice for companion animal species. Respondents have been scored against these ideal scenarios to given an overall score out of 100."
