Veterinary Services in Canada

The Veterinary Services industry in Canada has performed strongly over the five years to 2019. Improving consumer confidence and rising per capita disposable income have boosted demand for veterinary services. Furthermore, developments in medical technologies and procedures have enabled veterinarians to purchase enhanced diagnostic tools to perform specialized medical procedures in-house. As a result, many practices now offer ophthalmology, internal medicine, surgery and dentistry, among other specialty services. With the average lifespan of companion pets on the rise, demand for routine care and chronic disease management of older companion pets has increased as well.

Innovative technologies are expected to continue enabling industry operators to expand their product portfolio as research and development expenditure is expected to grow.
