The World Veterinary Day was first celebrated on April 29, 2000, as an initiative by the World Veterinary Association (WVA). In 2023 it is celebrated on 29th April with the theme being “Promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness in the Veterinary Profession”. The theme for 2022 was “To Celebrate the Efforts of Veterinary Professionals and To Strengthen Veterinary Resilience.”The world veterinary day is celebrated on the last Saturday of April every year globally, to promote the profession of veterinary as well as to promote the welfare of animals. Our vets play a very important role in the wellness and wellbeing of our fur family.

Pets are family, and pet parents are always on the search of good quality product to take care of their precious paws. A recent survey of 500 pet parents across India revealed that 55% of pet parents in Bangalore, spend an average of INR 3000 per month. Mumbai had 52% of pet parents spend the same amount and 40% of Delhi based pet parents spend between INR 1500-3000 monthly on their precious paws. The data also revealed that tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India were closer to the spending capacity of the metro pet parents. Findings said that pet parents look for information and are completely dependent on their vets. 93% Gen-Z believe there isn’t enough credible information available online to take care of their fur-babies. In fact, 72% Gen-Z pet parents believe that online vet consultations should be made available for easier access. In tier 2 and 3 cities, 73% pet parents face challenges accessing veterinary services online. However, the biggest need-gap that a 67% feel the pet care industry lacks is access to emergency consultations. 50% of Gen-Z pet parents prefer shopping online for food and toys, the survey was initiated by Supertails.com whose CEO and Co-Founder – Vineet Khanna, feels that the pet parenting community is driven by first time pet parents who face challenges because of lack of right resources. They carried out this survey to know their pet parents better and to be able to cater to their evolving needs, he also says that the Indian pet care industry has a potential to grow to $5 Bn by 2030.The survey saw maximum participation from Gen Z and Millennial pet parents across metro, Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities in the country.
