about bringing their pets to
“At Wellness, we un-
derstand the important
role pets play in our lives,
and to celebrate those re-
lationships, we roll out
all the stops to celebrate
Take Your Dog to Work
Day each year at our offic-
es, from a dog-friendly ice
cream truck to pet carica-
ture artists,” said Chanda
Leary-Coutu, senior mar-
keting communications manag-
er at Tewksbury, Mass.-based
“This year, we wanted to
find out more about what others
do to show their love for their
furry friends, not only on Take
Your Dog to Work Day, but
year-round,” Leary-Coutu said.
Additional findings include:
• 29 percent of dog or cat
owners use special meals as
a way to show their pets they
care—and these special meals or
treats often come after a long day
at the office.
• 37 percent of dog or cat
owners who are employed dis-
play photos of their pet at work.
The most popular place to have
a photo is on their desk ( 17
percent), followed closely by a
phone background ( 14 percent)
and computer background ( 12
percent). Employed millennial
dog or cat owners ( 48 percent)
are more likely to display pho-
tos of their pet at work than are
gen-Xers ( 31 percent) and baby
boomers ( 30 percent).
• 70 percent of dog or cat
owners would bring their pets’
favorite foods and snacks to
work with them.
• 65 percent of millennials are
most likely to have their mood
improve if they were to bring
their pet to work, compared to 43
percent of gen-Xers and 32 percent of baby boomers.
MARKET WORTH $6.71
BILLION BY 2021
According to a new market research report, Veterinary Diagnostics Market by Product by
Technology by Animal—Global
Forecast to 2021, published by
Pune, India-based Marketsand-Markets, the global market witnessed healthy growth during
the past decade and is expected
to grow at a compound annual
growth rate of 8. 6 percent between 2016 and 2021 to reach
$6.71 billion by 2021.
The growth is attributed to
factors such as rising animal
health care expenditure, rising
pet adoption, the growing demand for animal-derived food
products, the increasing number
of veterinary practitioners and
their growing income levels in
developed regions, the increasing demand for pet insurance
and a rising awareness of zoonotic diseases, MarketsandMar-kets reported.
In 2015, diagnostic imaging
accounted for the largest share of
the global veterinary diagnostics
market. However, the immuno-diagnostics segment is expected
to witness the highest growth
over the next five years.
North America is the largest regional segment for veterinary diagnostics owing to its
well-established animal health
care market. The largest share of
this regional segment is driven
by increasing demand for animal-derived food products, rising
companion animal health care expenditure, the growing number
of veterinary practitioners and
their income levels, and a rising
awareness of zoonotic diseases.
