Pet Health

The large amount of spending on vet care (over $20 billion in the US last year) has attracted many start ups eager to enter the pet health market.

The most common focus for these companies is on modernizing the vet – pet parent relationship, typically creating platforms which allow vets to provide telemedicine services to consumers.

The next most common pet health niche is DNA testing for your dog or cat.  We recently began tracking the sales of these products on Amazon and were surprised to find that revenue was well over $1 million per month in the US.
