In the 1960s, the various preparations manufactured by human pharmaceutical laboratories at that time did not make it possible to treat all the animal diseases. In 1968, while these major groups were looking to invest in animal health, Pierre-Richard Dick, a veterinary doctor in Nice, drew upon his training at the Pasteur Institute to devise and develop new medications. He founded Virbac with the intention of providing veterinarians, farmers and pet owners with a range of innovative solutions to fight animal diseases.
Present today through health products in more than 100 countries, Virbac has maintained its independence and its DNA. Linking the needs of health care providers to the latest technological advances, Virbac’s innovation offers a practical range of products and services to diagnose, prevent and treat the majority of pathologies, while improving the animals’ quality of life.
