In the UK, pertinent cattle health and welfare issues tend to be resolved through the Cow Health and Welfare Group (CHAWG).

Given these factors, it is projected that as pet ownership and the humanization phenomenon increase, this will impact the market.

However, there are several ethical and practical issues in treating farm animals' pain. The conflicting needs of society as a whole and animals are apparent in a legal sense. Legislative frameworks for the administration of analgesic drugs to these animals need to consider various factors, such as the risk of abuse if powerful controlled analgesic drugs, like narcotics, are not properly stored and accounted for. Thus, the legal issues surrounding pain management could have a negative effect on the market's expansion in the coming years.

Product Outlook

Based on product, the market is segmented into NSAIDs, anesthetics, opioids, and others. In 2022, the NSAIDs segment dominated the market with the maximum revenue share.

The major market players are also creating brand-new NSAIDs to reduce the reactions and negative effects brought on by existing ones. Animal owners are under increasing pressure to adhere to the prevailing veterinarian health standards to meet consumer demand for dairy products, fresh meat, and dietary supplements generated from animals. The use of veterinary NSAIDs is anticipated to increase in the coming years.
