About the Animal Health Business Unit

We passionately believe in a future in which no animal suffers from a preventable disease.

We provide advanced, preventive animal healthcare. We develop vaccines, parasiticides and pharmaceuticals that protect animals against disease and pain. And we develop new therapies to help those who care for animals to manage chronic diseases more effectively, limiting pain and slowing down disease progression.

Our people are driven by the fundamental principle of prevention over treatment.

Across the globe, we are creating the future of animal wellbeing. It is a future defined by science and powered by innovation. Why innovate? The population of companion animals and its importance for humans is steady increasing. The demand for animal protein is rising. Animal-originated diseases remain a continuous risk to human beings.

We must go beyond medicine to better predict, detect and prevent animal diseases before they arise. Why does this matter? Animal wellbeing enriches humanity. It is the basis of our connection to the animal world. From the vets dedicated to the highest patient care, to the livestock owners who depend on the health of their herds, to the families looking after much-loved pets, animal health and happiness is a vital part of a functional society.

We care for well beings, animals and humans. This is why our commitment to preventive care matters. This is what inspires us.

We are here to anticipate, prevent and ameliorate diseases, enabling those who raise and care for animals to focus on their wellbeing.

We are proud of our work through which we contribute to a better world.

We are the Animal Health Business Unit of Boehringer Ingelheim.
