Animal Health

Owners are increasingly seeking high-quality veterinary care for their pets. Dogs get cancer at roughly the same rate as humans and the disease accounts for almost half of the deaths of pets over 10 years of age[i].

There are over 180 million dogs and cats in the US[ii] and almost 190 million in Europe[iii] and the American Pet Products Association estimates that the US market for veterinary services was worth USD 15.9 billion in 2016.

Oasmia is currently exploring strategic options for its Animal Health portfolio. [If you are interested in finding out more about the applications of our technology in Animal Health, please contact].
