The Animal health companies in the west have efficiently exploited the situation by providing services and products to target customers. Relatively cheap products, like chewing bones, for the dental health of dogs and omega-3 supplements for a better skin-coat have gained enormous popularity amongst pet owners. Growing consciousness regarding the cognitive abilities, digestive health and muscular development of the pets have shaped the market. Continuous innovations and technological advances in the development of animal health drugs have helped the veterinary healthcare market to expand over past few decades. Increasing consumer concern for where and how their food is produced is leading to a tougher scrutiny of feeding and rearing practices of farm animals.
