Emergency Veterinary Services

Over the five years to 2018, the Emergency Veterinary Services industry has benefited from increased pet ownership nationwide. Thanks to many companion animals being treated as family members, many individuals have been willing to spend more on high-cost emergency services to ensure the health of their pets. Emergency veterinary practices provide high-cost treatments, including time-sensitive surgical procedures such as liver shunt correction, fracture repairs, exposure to toxic substances, removal of cancerous masses and organ biopsies. Furthermore, new medical technologies and product innovations have expanded industry operators' product portfolios. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to grow as many emergency veterinary practices expand their high-value services, adding more on-site critical care specialists and other specialized employees and thus reinforcing revenue growth. Furthermore, the lifespan of many pets is expected to increase alongside the introduction of new pet medications and technologies.
Companies in this industry provide emergency veterinary services to livestock, equines and domesticated animals.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
