Just as we do, animals get sick. And like us, they deserve the right care and treatment to recover.
Disease is one of the most common threats to animal wellbeing. It’s estimated that one in five farm animals are lost due to diseases each year, while many more animals suffer the effects of illness.
Animal health products help protect, diagnose and treat animals against disease. Medicines alleviate the suffering of the animal, boost healthy productivity and ensure fewer animals are lost to disease.
But there is still more to do. The 20 percent of animals lost to preventable disease is the great challenge for farmers, veterinarians and animal medicine providers. As well as encouraging more vaccination and preventative treatments, we must also be vigilant against new and emerging diseases. This means continually developing new medicines and innovative treatments to stay one step ahead.
Diseases are in a state of constant change, and new, innovative medicines will be needed to counter each new threat to animal wellbeing.
farmers and veterinarians across the world avoid losing animals every day. These medicines work alongside farmers’ own careful husbandry and the expertise of veterinarians to support the wellbeing of the animals in their care.
