These implants are typically made from biocompatible materials such as titanium, stainless steel, or cobalt chromium alloy and are surgically implanted into the affected area to provide support, stability, and alignment during the healing process.

Also, shortage of skilled healthcare professionals had largely disrupted the operations of veterinary facilities, resulting into a negative impact on providers in the market. Also, the other factors affected the market include an increase in the burden of COVID-19-related hospitalization and limited availability of medical care.
