Pet Medications: United States

This report forecasts US pet medication retail sales in nominal US dollars for 2019-2022. To illustrate historical trends, total retail sales are provided in annual series from 2014-2018.

This report examines the retail market for medications for dogs and cats, with a focus on products purchased directly by consumers. These include prescription, over-the-counter (also called OTC or retail products), and "ethical" products (nonprescription medications that are only distributed to veterinarians). The primary focus of this report is on the core types of antiparasitics/parasiticides.

Animal health products for production animals and horses are excluded from this market analysis, as are nutritional supplements for companion animals and horses, which are covered in Packaged Facts' April 2019 report Pet Supplements in the U.S., and March 2017 report U.S. Equine Market.
