We believe our future growth, success and contribution to the welfare of animals and to the veterinary profession will be in improved health care for companion animals. Increased spending within the companion animal market is driven by: the human animal bond; rising number of households with pets; a focus on animal health and preventive care; migration of technology from human health to veterinary medicine; and, an aging pet population. There were 217,700,000 pets in the U.S.A. in 2011 (not including 159.7 million fish). There were 78.2 million dogs; 86.4 million cats; 7.9 million horses; 5.7 million birds; 13 million reptiles; and, 16 million small animal pets. This resulted in an expenditure of $13.41 billion for veterinary care in 2011 which illustrates the pet owning public’s willingness to pay for veterinary care*.
