Veterinary Rehabilitation Services Sector Outlook

The global market size for veterinary rehabilitation services (companion, livestock, & wildlife) was estimated at USD 792.4 million in 2022 and is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 11.69% from 2023 to 2030. Veterinary rehabilitation is a non-invasive physical therapy that is performed on animal patients to recover from injuries, post-surgeries, and diseases such as neurologic, orthopedic, and other chronic illnesses. Physical rehabilitation services have helped several animals to restore regular mobility, function, and quality of life.

Some basic tasks of trained veterinary rehabilitators include:

  • Initial assessments with the review of medical imaging & patient records

  • General examination

  • Detailed evaluation of musculoskeletal & neurological conditions

  • Advanced diagnostic procedures if required.

  • Arranging the therapeutic plans

  • Pain management medications & services

  • Home-exercise prescriptions

  • Discussion on prognostic measures

  • Regular communication with referring veterinarians & patient owners

The increasing prevalence of orthopedic & musculoskeletal disorders among animals, the growing adoption & ownership rates of companion animals coupled with pet humanization trends, and growing awareness among pet owners regarding drug-free & non-invasive rehab treatment are some of the key factors driving this market.

According to the American Animal Hospital Association, the major benefits of veterinary rehabilitation services include reduced inflammation and pain, increased mobility, improved coordination & balance, normal movement & muscle mass restoration, enhanced muscular strength, and overall improvement in quality of life.

Furthermore, the resumption of vet rehab services post-pandemic, the growing adoption of pet insurance that also covers rehabilitation services & treatments, expansion in the number of vet rehab centers & practitioners, and increased pet care expenditure are some of the other factors driving the market. American Pet Products Association (APPA) reported in its 2023 report that the pet care expenditure in the U.S. raised to reach 136.8 billion in 2022 from USD 90.5 billion in 2018. Hence, the constantly increasing year-on-year pet healthcare expenditure is one of the major factors driving the market growth.
