The Italy Veterinary Healthcare market is expected to register a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. Veterinary medicines are associated with treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of diseases, among animals. It covers a variety of animal species, both, in domestic and wild.

Increasing Productivity at the Risk of Emerging Zoonosis

The growing meat consumption, especially for chicken and pork, is adding to the exposure of dangerous foodborne pathogens. The E. coli and Salmonella infections cause serious diseases among people, and can even be fatal at times, which is possible during the intensive production systems. Moreover, there is a risk of emerging new strains of influenza viruses, due to the long distance transportation of animals. The farms are often in the same area, with a concentration of confined animals, which potentially enhances the risk of avian influenza transferring to pigs. The reassortment of the virus can lead to new strains and cause infections among humans. Further, these farms increase the risk of spreading and mixing of virus strains. Intensive farm practices are causing the risk of emergence of these bacteria in the food, as stressed animals become more susceptible to infection. The risk from zoonotic diseases is fuelling the market for veterinary healthcare. Inter-Governmental Organizations and the food production are making reforms to ensure health by the process of surveillance and vaccination, investing in R&D, and transfer with respect to vet health.

Additionally, advanced technology leading to innovations in animal healthcare and increasing initiatives by government and animal welfare associations in different countries are also factors responsible for the growth of Italy veterinary healthcare market.

Increasing Costs of Animal Testing and Veterinary Services

Advances in veterinary care, over the past few years, have come at high price. For instance, costs to treat a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL), a common dog injury, have soared to cost around USD of 1000 to 2,000, more than double the money people had paid in past. That doesn't include the costs of diagnostic testing, which can add an additional cost to a pet owner's bill. Also, many diseases and injuries are diagnosed with an MRI, which used to be inaccessible to all, but the most well-funded university hospitals. The MRI machines are available in many hospitals, vets use this test as standard care for diagnosing and treating cancer, epilepsy, injury, etc., but the test itself also costs around 1000 plus dollars as this is an incredibly useful and important diagnostic tool, the cost is out of reach for many pet owners who would struggle to be able to afford the surgery and/or treatment following the MRI, let alone the cost of the test itself. Thus, increasing cost of animal testing and veterinary services is hindering the growth of the market.

Also, lack of infrastructure and funding and use of counterfeit medicines are restraining the growth of Italy veterinary healthcare market.
