Veterinarians remain the source of pet care information most valued by pet owners, as confirmed by Packaged Facts’ August-September 2021 Survey of Pet Owners. But generational patterns also show that while veterinarians were once kings of the hill, they are now competing for mindshare—and pet care dollars—within an increasingly crowded field in which non-medical pet service professionals are gaining ground.
Some Covid-19 setbacks notwithstanding, a growing range of non-medical pet care services are gaining in dollar importance within the overall pet industry. Correspondingly, non-veterinary pet care professionals—especially groomers and trainers—increasingly serve as pet industry influencers.
For more information about this industry trend and other important developments to watch, see the newly published report Pet Services in the U.S. by Packaged Facts.
