Veterinary Industry Summary: Aug 14-20, 2022


Stats from the Veterinary Industry Tracker powered by Vetsource and the AVMA


Aug 14-20, 2022

While much of the country continued to experience extreme weather last week, veterinary practices again saw modest year-over-year revenue growth and negative year-over-year growth in visits. Year-over-year growth was at 4.7% for revenue and -3.1% for visits. Revenue from professional services again accounted for much of that growth in revenue, at over 6% year-over-year. Months of heartworm and flea/tick protection dispensed were down again this past week but up compared to the week prior. Product revenue was again flat, the same as we saw the week prior. You can see more details below and check out the Veterinary Industry Tracker for daily stats.

The rolling 14-day trendline for revenue and visits growth year-over-year was fairly consistent in 2021, but then declined in January 2022. This spiked in February but then declined again and appears to be settling in overall at a lower rate than what we saw in 2021. Recently we saw a small spike in July and are now seeing it start to climb in August.
