The Animal Hospitals And Veterinary Clinics services market consists of sales of Animal Hospitals And Veterinary Clinics services such as consultation, surgery, medicine and other food items for animals.

North America was the largest region in the animal hospitals and veterinary clinics market in 2018, followed by Western Europe, Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe respectively.
The rise in adoption of companion pets globally is driving the animal hospitals and veterinary clinics market. The key factor behind this rise in adoption is increasing humanization of pets, as an increasing number of pet owners are accepting pets as family members. According to American Veterinary Medical Association report, there was a correlation between the degree of human/animal bond and pet spending.
According to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), In the USA, approximately 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year. Also, according to a study in 2018, Americans spent about $17 billion on veterinary care in hospital, clinics and food. Similarly, Chinese pet owners spent more than 5,000 yuan per pet in 2018, an increase of 15% from 2017. With this growth, the animal hospital and veterinary clinics market is expected to grow in the forecast period.
Veterinary healthcare access is relatively poor in most developing countries and some developed nations. Globally, the disease burden is significantly high in low and middle income countries. For instance, in 2014, India reported approximately 63,000 veterinarians while the country required more than 150,000 veterinarians. Thus, shortage of skilled veterinarian professionals is having a negative impact on the growth of the animal hospital and veterinary clinics market.
Many veterinary care service providers are adopting big data technologies to provide better treatment for pets, livestock and animals.
