Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary medicine concerned with the prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the health of domestic and wild animals and with the prevention of the transmission of animal diseases to people. Veterinary medicine has made many important contributions to animal and human health, including dramatic reductions in animal sources of human exposure to tuberculosis and brucellosis. The scope of it is wide; covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as Animal physiotherapy or Dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers. The selection of veterinary medicines accounts for more than 270 trade names. The worldwide Veterinary Vaccines market ($4.23 Bn) accounted for approximately 20% of the total Vaccines market ($29.71 Bn) in 2010. It has been estimated to grow with a CAGR of 5.80% to reach the market size of $5.6 Bn by 2016.
