Pet Medications: United States

This report forecasts US pet medication retail sales in US dollars for 2017-2021. To illustrate historical trends, total retail sales are provided in annual series from 2013 to 2016.

This report examines the consumer market for medications for dogs and cats, with a focus on products used by consumers. These include prescription, over-the-counter (also known as OTC or "retail"), and ethical products (nonprescription medications whose distribution is restricted by the manufacturer to veterinarians). The primary focus of this report is on antiparasitics (flea, tick, heartworm, etc), but it also covers market-shaping developments in other areas including cancer, cognitive dysfunction, mood disorder, pain management, and obesity/diabetes. Animal health products for production animals and horses are excluded from this market analysis, as are nutritional supplements for horses and companion animals.
