Regulations restricting the use of parasiticides for food-producing animals

The use of parasiticides in livestock animals is subject to various federal regulations in many countries. The extra-label use of these topical parasiticides could leave residues that may, on consumption by human beings, have side effects. As a result, the use of these parasiticides, especially endoparasiticides, needs to be regulated; safe residue concentrations and withdrawal periods for antiparasitics used in food-producing animals must be standardized, and slaughtered animals need to be monitored for possible unsafe residues.

Shift towards vegetarianism

Globally, there is a significant rise in the prevalence of obesity and other chronic disorders. Owing to this, many people are shifting toward a vegetarian diet from a predominantly non-vegetarian diet. According to Google Trends, interest in veganism increased sevenfold between 2014 and 2020. The US Department of Agriculture releases dietary guidelines on a timely basis. These guidelines influence nutrition education, public policy, and food programs and provide guidance on food choices with recommendations for weight management and physical activity. In addition, these guidelines encourage the consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat milk and equivalents.


Lucrative opportunities in emerging markets

Over the last few years, companion animal ownership has witnessed a steady increase, especially in emerging countries such as India, China, Brazil, and other APAC and Latin American countries. Rapid urbanization and growing disposable incomes are driving pet ownership in these countries. Many pet owners in these countries are now willing to spend more on pet care
