Diabetes in pets is caused due to absolute, relevant insulin deficiency or an inadequate biological response to it. Insulin secreted by the pancreas controls the glucose levels in the blood. The ingested food is broken down into glucose among other components which is then carried by insulin to the cells and is utilized in the form of energy.

Lack of insulin production leads to the limited amount of glucose transportation to the cells. This results in inappropriate cell functioning and the tissue starves for energy. This metabolic starvation triggers the liver to break down additional sugar stored in the muscles, liver and fat cells. The rising prevalence of diabetes among pets is a major concern for pet owners across the globe as an increasing number of pets are diagnosed with diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic condition that commonly develops in older pets and sometimes in the younger pets as well. Unlike humans, certain pets are genetically prone to develop diabetes, however being overweight increases the risk of developing diabetes in pets. As pet diabetes cannot be cured, increasing efforts from pet owners and key stakeholders in the pet diabetes care devices market are targeted towards its optimum management. Effective diabetic care and management does not affect pet’s quality of life. Pets with diabetes usually require lifelong treatment with good fitness regimen, special diet and particularly in dogs, daily insulin injections.

Increasing adoption of pets have fostered the pet diabetes care market statistics

Increasing adoption of pets for companionship and safety-related factors has significantly increased the spending on pet care. Majority of the pet owners are noted to consider their pets as family members and look after them with utmost care that contributes to increased pet care spending.

The increasing disposable income of pet owners further propels the pet ownership rate, leading to an increased pet healthcare spending in tandem. For instance, according to the American Pets Products Association, in 2021, 90.5 million families own a pet in the U.S. Hence, increasing pet care expenditure and their well-being such as regular health check-ups and growing advancement in treatment solutions are major factors propelling the pet diabetes care devices market share over the forecast period.

Limited awareness surrounding proper management of pet diabetes may restrict the market growth

Diabetes in pets is a complex disease and cannot be cured with the medications, but it can be detected early and managed efficiently with the help of veterinarian, proper treatment, diet, and exercise ensuring a health life. However, regular medication in pets leads to various side effects. Additionally, diabetic pets are observed to be more prone to other infections. Increased sugar level may lead to cataract that can potentially reduce a pet’s eyesight, sense of smelling and hearing ability. Further, increased blood sugar levels also cause the risk of urinary tract infections.

Some of the other problems that may occur include hypokalemia, high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, lumps and bumps, skin irritation, lethargy, anaphylaxis, liver, or kidney damage, among others. Limited awareness among the general population regarding pet diabetes is noted to be one of the prominent factors for the pet diabetes care devices market growth.

The emergence of COVID – 19 pandemic has significantly increased public healthcare concern impacting the global economy. As the cases were noted to rise, several local and national regulatory bodies were noted to impose restrictions on the movement of goods and people.

With the advent of COVID – 19 pandemic, global supply chain hindrances were noted to impact the overall sales of the pet diabetes care devices. However, this was primarily offset by the increased demand from pet owners in an attempt to stock essential pet care products, including diabetes devices such as pet diabetes care devices. Further, as several key players operating in the pet diabetes care devices market were identified as essential services providers, the manufacturers were allowed to operate as usual, and the market witnessed only minor implications.

Pet adoption witnessed a spike throughout 2020 however, as the situation normalises, an increasing concern is observed surrounding the rising rate of abandoned pets. Hence, as the pandemic crisis unfolds, the short-term mixed effects of pandemic have left the investors unsure whether the surge in overall pet care market will remain the same or change over the years.

As a result, due to travel restrictions and closure of veterinary clinics, the market witnessed slightly negative impact. However, reducing COVID-19 cases and rising pet care expenditure are expected to complement the pet diabetes care devices market over the coming years.
