Wildlife Animal Rehabilitation Services Insights

The global companion animal rehabilitation services market size was valued at USD 499.7 million in 2022 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 11.42% from 2023 to 2030. The growing awareness among veterinarians & pet parents regarding physical rehab therapies as a drug-free & non-invasive treatment for companion animals, improving trends of pet humanization, and increasing incidence of orthopedic & musculoskeletal problems coupled with respective surgery rates, are some of the key factors driving the market. In addition, the increasing number of organizations recruiting volunteer animal rehabilitators is further boosting the market growth. For instance, ‘our companion-animal rescue & sanctuary organization’ in the U.S. offers two different ways for the general public to volunteer in rehabilitating stray companion animals.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the market, majorly in the year 2020. This impact was brought on by the announcement of nationwide & statewide lockdown, which led to movement restrictions and the closure of vet rehabilitation centers. It created hurdles among veterinarians, rehabilitators, and pet parents in accessing physical therapies for their beloved animals owing to the forced cancellation of rehab programs. Moreover, the pandemic also created a looming recession and increased price rates for rehabilitation services, which affected the decisions of pet parents in choosing rehabilitation therapies.

The pandemic has also had a positive impact on the market, such as an increased pet adoption rates globally. For instance, according to an article published by the National Library of Medicine in September 2021, animal rescue & shelter homes worldwide have experienced ever-increasing foster care & adoption rates during the pandemic. In addition, the U.S. CDC, in collaboration with American Veterinary Medical Association, developed guidelines for shelter homes to help continue operating and protect the health of animals during the period of the massive health crisis. Therefore, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the exiting and entering of animals in shelter homes and rescue centers, relevantly affecting rehabilitation services.

In addition, government-sponsored livestock rehabilitation organizations and foundations are increasing in developing regions, which further propels the growth of the market.
