Pet Medications: United States

This report forecasts US pet medication retail sales in nominal US dollars for 2019-2022. To illustrate historical trends, total retail sales are provided in annual series from 2014-2018.

This report examines the retail market for medications for dogs and cats, with a focus on products purchased directly by consumers. These include prescription, over-the-counter (also called OTC or retail products), and ""ethical"" products (nonprescription medications that are only distributed to veterinarians).
