According to the 2018 white paper on China's pet industry, 56.48 million people in cities and towns have pets (including dogs and cats only), and 91.49 million of them live in cities and towns. These Numbers, too, are constantly changing with the birth and end of every life.
With the increasing number of pet owners and the increasing demand for pet owners, more and more purebred dogs and cats begin to enter pet families. At the same time, the market's preference for purebred dogs and cats has changed the overall health of pets to some extent. Among them, dog and cat genetic disease is a common potential risk that threatens the life and health of pets. According to statistics, the average incidence of genetic diseases in dogs and cats is as high as 21%.
Simply put, one in five dogs and cats around us is at high risk of genetic disease. Once there is a risk of disease, genetic diseases will inevitably appear sooner or later in a pet's life and will plague them until the end. Only 1 percent of pet owners in China are actively concerned about their pet's genetic risk.
This 1% of pet owners are using a leading awareness of prevention to put their pet's health at the starting point.
With the increasing number of pet owners, the number of pet services in the market is also growing rapidly, and pet owners have more and more choices for the health of their pets. In order to make them have a higher quality of life, pet owners' awareness of healthy pet keeping has been improved in recent years.
