One in every two households on the planet is home to a companion animal. Aware of their importance in our lives and the emotional ties that bind us, Virbac offers an integrated approach to the health and well-being of our companions: effective, complementary solutions that are easy to administer and suited to the needs of each species.
In every region of the world, Virbac covers the most common pathologies in companion animals: dogs, cats, horses, as well as birds, rodents, ferrets, reptiles, etc. The Group provides a cross-functional solution that combines diagnosis, treatment and nutritional tools, as well as services for veterinarians: scientific training, diagnosis assistance, etc. For example, canine leishmaniosis is targeted using a diagnostic test, a vaccine, a parasiticide with a repellent effect and a prescription medication. Likewise, Virbac’s approach to allergies in dogs combines skin care solutions (calming shampoo, soothing spray, spot-on serum), topical or systemic medicated treatments, and a nutrition range dedicated to animals with allergies.
Using an innovative approach that relies on the latest medical advances, particularly in the areas of reproduction, vaccination, dermatology, nutrition and dentistry for cats and dogs, Virbac is helping to advance veterinary practices.
Making life easier for practitioners and owners by paying special attention to the well-being of companion animals is accomplished by developing products that take the behavioral specificities of each species into account. That is why we work to develop award-winning and innovative galenics, formulations and packaging, designed to simplify the administration of products.
Although dogs and cats remain owners’ preferred companion animals on a worldwide scale, Virbac also meets the health needs of less widespread species or those who are more specific to a geographical area. That is the case for exotic companion animals (birds, rodents, ferrets, reptiles, etc.) that have become more common in homes over the past few decades, particularly in some countries, such as France. Virbac provides the owner with a range of specific food supplements and vitamins to maintain the nutritional balance of these animals, often subject to dietary deficiencies and imbalances of the intestinal flora. Likewise, Virbac helps veterinarians and horse owners to safeguard the health of their companions (nutritional supplements, tooth and skin care), protect them from parasites (dewormers) and fight major pathologies, especially laminitis.
