Services Insights

The bathing and brushing segment held the largest market share of 46.1% in 2019 in terms of revenue and as they are essential to maintain the hair coat of dogs and cats. Brushing removes the dirt, dead hair, and loose hair tangles, which helps spread hair oil evenly and stimulates blood flow for healthy skin.
