North American Animal Healthcare Market size is predicted to cross USD 69.8 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.

Adoption of supportive initiatives and policies by the state agencies across the North American region is anticipated to stimulate the animal healthcare market growth. The U.S. FDA adopted the One Health initiative to understand the inter-connectedness between human & animal health and to advocate an extensive approach to health & environmental concerns. This initiative bridges the gap amongst the veterinarians, physicians, environmental scientists, and public health professionals by promoting and improving the health & well-being of all species. The One Health initiative emphasizes on reducing the transmission of diseases from livestock animals and wild animals to humans.

In 2010, the World Small Animal Veterinary Association inaugurated the One Health committee emphasizing on monitoring and controlling the diseases in companion animals. Other organizations including the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), under the U.S. Department of Agriculture monitors the farm animal health. The organization is also engaged in preventing animal disease outbreaks and strives to maintain optimal production of healthy livestock to ensure safe food supply. NIFA’s programs assists the farmers, veterinarians, and scientists to promote their efforts in optimizing novel approaches to safeguard animal health. Furthermore, federal agencies also assisted in mitigating the supply of medicines during the COVID-19 outbreak. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2020, published guidelines for the veterinary professionals to facilitate the treatment of companion animals.

The North America animal healthcare market from veterinary services segment is anticipated to surpass USD 41.3 billion by 2027 owing to the increasing demand for veterinary services and soaring number of pet adoptions during the pandemic.

The animal medication sales surged by approximately 13% as compared to 2019. Majority of these medications are dispensed through the veterinary pharmacies.
