The veterinary diagnostics are tests, which help in determining and detecting various disorders associated with animals. The diagnostic tests are performed by taking the blood, faeces, and tissue samples, of animals. The increased pet ownerships with improving urban lifestyle and many shifting from towns to urban localities across developed and emerging markets drive the demand for veterinary healthcare as well as its diagnostics. Also, the rise in zoonotic and foodborne diseases, have increased the responsibility of owners and animal healthcare organizations to invest more in their healthcare. Apart from that, there are many private insurance companies in developed markets that are attracting owners and companies which are propelling the growth of the veterinary diagnostics market. However, Lack of Veterinarians and High Cost of Pet Care and Imaging Devices act as among the major restraints for the veterinary diagnostics market.
