Key Market Trends

Physical Monitoring is Expected to Witness Rapid Growth

Newer technologies and advancements, like wearables and other similar connected technologies, can be helpful for the health of pets across the board, from young to old. Wearable technologies extend the veterinarians’ reach beyond the walls of their practice by allowing them to see the impact of their treatment recommendations 24/7. Wearables for patient monitoring adopted for pets include radio frequency identification, GPS, and sensors.

As the surgery rates among animals are increasing, animal physical health monitoring has also increased, in order to monitor the patient’s heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and capillary refill time, etc.

Hence, owing to the increase in technological advancements in patient monitoring and increasing general awareness among pet owners, it is expected that the market for veterinary physical health monitoring will augment in the future years across the world.
