Healthy Animals

We all benefit when animals are healthy. But, just like people, sometimes animals get sick — and need medical treatment.

Working with farmers and registered veterinarians, Zoetis shares the responsibility for:

• Promoting animal health, first and foremost through the use of vaccines and prevention programs

• Identifying and properly diagnosing animals that are sick or at risk

• Treating animals with the right medications, at the right time, with the right dose

• Using antibiotics responsibly so they remain effective

ZOETIS SUPPORT FOR FARMERS

Successful farmers are committed to raising healthy animals. And the Zoetis commitment to supporting farmers starts with animal health management programs designed to prevent disease.

ZOETIS COMMITMENT TO VETERINARIANS

Veterinarians take a professional oath to protect and preserve public health. They are at the heart of everything we do at Zoetis — and their ongoing education and involvement with farmers help ensure our products will be used responsibly.

THE ZOETIS VIEW:

Veterinarians need to be at the center of animal health. They are key stakeholders in public health.

We are committed to helping veterinarians and farmers stay informed in today’s changing regulatory landscape. See how we put our commitment into action.

  • Training and continuing education makes veterinarians better animal health practitioners, better communicators and better business people.
  • We support responsible antibiotic use by providing farmers and veterinarians with ongoing education. These programs help our customers use our animal health products within the label guidelines outlined by the APVMA to ensure effective treatment while protecting the food supply. We’ll continue to develop ways to make sure our products are used properly today — and remain effective.
  • Zoetis Resistance Monitoring and Surveillance: A Model for the Industry

Zoetis has co-sponsored the largest Australian antibiotic resistance monitoring program in the animal health industry to help ensure our antibiotics are used carefully and remain effective. Our program began in 2009 and included participation of diagnostic laboratories to monitor antimicrobial resistance in pathogens of cattle, swine, horses, dogs and cats.
