Animals like people suffer from diseases and require proper care from the veterinarians, the farmers and the pet owners. Food producing animals are the species that provide animal protein including cattle (both beef and dairy), swine, poultry, sheep and fish, whereas companion animals are the animals that are kept by people for companionship, protection and enjoyment such as dogs, cats, and horses among others. Keeping animals healthy and treating them with dignity is one of the main objectives of the animal health industry and applies equally to companion animals, livestock and wild animals. Animal health market includes pharmaceuticals, vaccines and medicinal feed additives. Pharmaceuticals contribute significantly to the health and well-being of food-producing and companion animals.
Veterinary healthcare globally has had a significant boost in revenues due to a number of factors. Economic development and related growth in per capita disposable income, increasing pet ownership, increasing demand for improved nutrition especially animal protein, higher attention on food safety and higher demand for greater livestock production are major factors contributing to the growth of animal health market. Going forward, the key factor for the growth of animal health market will be the need to increase production of farm animal products (eggs, milk, beef and other dairy products).
