Protect animals, benefit people
Innovative veterinary products for farm and companion animals
The Animal Health Division focuses its research and development activities at the Monheim site in Germany on antibiotics and antiparasitics as well as active substances to treat non-infectious disorders in animals. The research activities of Animal Health have been integrated with the Global Drug Discovery unit of BHC since March 2011.
The advantage lies in the joint use of technology platforms and the pooling of know-how and experience in drug discovery. At the same time, Animal Health continues to collaborate with CropScience research, especially in the area of parasitology. Thus we are exploiting the advantage we have as the only company in the world that conducts research within the same organization into improving the health of people, animals and plants. As well as developing new products to combat bacterial infections and parasites in companion animals and livestock, we are continuing to expand the product portfolio for the treatment of chronic kidney diseases in cats. In addition, a number of product line extensions were approved in different markets, such as Seresto™ (active ingredients: imidacloprid and flumethrin) in Europe. Seresto™ is a collar for dogs and cats with considerably longer duration of action against ticks and fleas.
