New report profiles the US flea, tick and heartworm markets 12/7/2010

A new study from Brakke Consulting takes an in-depth look at flea, tick and heartworm products, the largest segment of the companion animal market. 

”The flea control and heartworm preventatives market has been one of the most innovative areas in animal health, with a variety of new active ingredients and novel formulations,” said Lynn Fondon, senior consultant of Brakke Consulting.  “Sales of flea control products have tripled in size since the introduction of Program, the first of the new-generation products, in 1995.”

The study, The US Flea Control and Heartworm Markets, profiles the veterinary and OTC markets for flea and tick products and heartworm preventatives, including veterinary product sales and pricing, advertising expenditures, and new and developing products.  The report also includes a survey of small animal veterinarians.  

“This year’s study is especially interesting because of Bayer’s move into the OTC channel in February 2010, as well as Frontline Top Spot going off-patent this year,” comments Dr. Fondon.  

The report – published annually by Brakke for the past 14 years – gathered information from a variety of sources, including published information, industry interviews and a survey of over 200 small animal veterinarians.

The US Flea Control and Heartworm Markets report is available from Brakke Consulting for $5,500. For more information, interested companies should contact Lynn Fondon at 972.243.4033.
