Animal health

Animal health is closely linked to the health and wellbeing of humans. It impacts us in both livestock production and companion animal care.

By 2050, the world will need to double food production to feed a global population estimated to be 9.1 billion*. Meeting this demand involves the cost-effective production of safe, high-quality animal protein.

Our pets are part of our family and provide us with loyalty, companionship, love and affection. They can make our lives feel fuller and happier than ever, teaching us and making us happier and better.

The animal health space has developed over the past few years into a vibrant economic environment affecting billions of people worldwide.
