MSD Animal Health
The Food Safety Award
As a global healthcare leader, MSD works to help the world be well. MSD Animal Health, known as Merck Animal Health in the United States and Canada, is the global animal health business unit of MSD. We offer one of the industry’s most innovative portfolios – not only of products, but also of services and technologies – to prevent, treat and control diseases across all major farm and companion animal species. Our mission – The Science of Healthier Animals – guides all of our work. Healthier animals mean a sustainable food supply, protection for humans against diseases passed from animals, and longer, healthier lives for pets.
Our products fight diseases that can devastate animals, threaten human health, and disrupt the supply of food. We continually introduce new technologies to help our customers maximize their efficiency while improving animal wellbeing, such as the world’s first non-parasiticide cattle product with a transdermal route of administration. Finally, we keep people happy by caring for their family pets with innovative products including the first chewable tablet for dogs effective against fleas and certain tick species for up to 12 weeks.
MSD Animal Health’s robust R&D pipeline spans key therapeutic areas, providing a solid platform for further advances in veterinary medicine. Our customers expect more from us than just medicines, and we continue to deliver the information, technologies and veterinary services to meet their needs around the world. As a multi-species global company operating in more than 150 markets, we respond readily to the demands of our dynamic industry.
