Veterinary test is a medical process which involves the diagnosis and prevention of disease in animals and their treatment. This branch is gaining importance due to increase in animal population, increasing animal health expenditure, and growth in the number of veterinary practitioners and their revenue levels in developed countries. Veterinary practitioners use software systems to perform their operations with improved efficiency. This software system manages information of patients, treatment planning, and scheduling. It helps doctors, nurses or technicians to deliver treatments efficiently. This software is able to manage patient communications, influx, and payments. Besides, it provides an integrated system which enables users to accept payments, enter transactions, create customer invoices, and manage discounts. Veterinary software providers offer solutions for the management of single or multi-veterinarians for large animals, small animals, or mixed specialty practices.
The driving factor for the global veterinary software market is rise in occurrence of zoonotic diseases. Increasing occurrence has driven the demand for animal monitoring services and health diagnostics, which is anticipated to increase the demand for veterinary software over the estimated period. The implementation of integrated software systems for treatment and diagnostics is predicted to grow over the forecast period. Moreover, increase in adoption of pet animals fuels the growth of the veterinary software market. Additionally, increasing product innovation and integration of additional functions by top companies in this market further increases the demand. For instance, Timeless Veterinary Systems, Inc. has introduced a new teleradiology platform. The company has offered veterinary radiologists with an affordable first-class system to manage their entire online consulting service. However, the lack of government initiatives and awareness is hampering the growth of the market. Moreover, high initial cost of veterinary software is restraining the growth of this market.
