On the other hand, pets are considered part of families. Both factors are resulting in increased expenditure on animal well-being. Furthermore, the increasing support from the government for livestock animal healthcare and well-being positively influences the veterinary rapid test kits industry growth.

Rapidly Growing Pet Ownership

Among pet animals, dogs and cats are highly popular and most adopted by people. In the past three decades, pet ownership has increased significantly. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people spent more time at home and got bored more deeply with their pets. Dogs and cats have become a part of families in several geographies.

The companion animals’ population has increased for many reasons over the last few years. As people consider pet animals family members, pet owners are extra cautious about their pets’ health.

Common parasitic, viral, and bacterial infections such as heartworm, feline leukemia, and ringworm are prevalent in companion animals. To reduce the risk of these diseases in pets, pet owners have increased the adoption of rapid veterinary test kits as preventive measures. They contributed to the growth of veterinary rapid test kits. For example, Pashudhan Praharee (India) Report 2022 stated that the demand for companion animal diagnosis is increasing rapidly worldwide. In companion animals, heartworm, roundworm, parvovirus, and ringworm are diseases commonly found in dogs and cats. In 2020, in the U.S., around 34% of dogs were infected with gastrointestinal parasitic diseases. In companion animal diagnosis, veterinary rapid test kits for conditions such as feline leukemia and heartworm are cheaper than other testing methods. So, the frequent testing of these diseases with rapid test kits is highly affordable for pet owners. In addition, simplicity, portability, and affordable cost are the key elements accelerating the market growth. Further, some leading market players, such as IDEXX, Biopanda Reagents, and Zoetis, offer a comprehensive range of rapid test kits for heartworm, feline leukemia, and other diseases.
