In January–November 2022, the sales of veterinary drugs in the Russian offline retail market were 18.8 billion RUB retail prices, VAT included), down 5.2% from the same period in 2021.

In Q1–Q3 2022, the online sales or reservations of pharmacy products (pharmaceutical drugs and parapharmaceuticals) in Russia were 213.4 billion rubles (end-user prices, VAT included), which is much higher than the total in 2021. The sales and reservations went up 50.7% (against 51.3% in Q1–Q2 2022). The growth rate is significantly more different from those seen due to the rush demand earlier this year—in particular, the sales in Q1 2022 grew 69.6%.
In January–October 2022, the sales of veterinary drugs in the Russian retail market were 17.5 billion RUB (retail prices, VAT included), down 5.5% from the same period in 2021. That is an obvious result of the rush demand in March, the flow of consumers to the online segment, as well as dropping household incomes. In physical terms, the sales were 113.4 million minimum dosage units (MDU), down 21%.
