Ranking among the top 10 animal companies in the world, innovation is and will always be at the heart of all Vetmedica’s activities. Through the discovery of new pharmaceutical solutions, molecules or vaccines we can offer added value to the veterinary surgeon and animal owners.
In the UK, Vetmedica promotes a wide range of both therapeutic and preventative products, dealing with both companion animals (dogs, cats, and horses) and farm animals.
