The U.S. veterinarian market size was valued at USD 11.03 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% from 2022 to 2030. The growing animal population, uptake of pet insurance, and expenditure on the well-being of pets are the key market drivers. (Source: Grand View Research)
