Investing in Tomorrow’s Veterinarians and Associated Professionals

We believe fostering the next generation of veterinary experts is critical for our industry. For our business to be sustainable, it is essential that we have access to the best-trained scientific and veterinary minds around the globe. That’s why we provide support for programs that expand educational opportunities in veterinary and animal sciences.

We collaborate with scientific, educational and veterinary professional associations by supporting research, education and specialized skills training, especially focused on the personal and professional health and well-being of veterinarians and agriculture professionals.

Our commitment to our future veterinary and agriculture leaders includes our Scholarship Program. We have supported veterinary students in 70 countries and have partnered with 18 non-profit organizations. To date, we’ve donated over $6 million in scholarships.

Through our mission of The Science of Healthier Animals®, we intend to ensure that animals continue to be provided with high-quality medical care, and that research needs of the industry benefit animal health, well-being and performance.
