Brazil has one of the highest concentrations of veterinarians per inhabitant on the planet

Brazil has one of the highest concentrations of veterinarians per inhabitant on the planet, as revealed by the study "Demographics of Veterinary Medicine in Brazil 2022.”


In 2022, approximately 166,119 actively practicing veterinarians served a population of 214 million Brazilians, resulting in a remarkable ratio of 77.4 veterinarians per 100,000 inhabitants.


Moreover, the veterinary profession in Brazil can be characterized as relatively young, with over 60% of the professionals being under 40 years old.


This striking contrast becomes evident when compared to the United States, which is projected to face a shortage of 15,000 companion-animal veterinarians by 2030.
