In the 1960s, the various preparations manufactured by human pharmaceutical companies at that time did not make it possible to treat all animal disease. In 1968, while these major groups were looking to invest in animal health, Pierre-Richard Dick, a veterinary surgeon in Nice, drew upon his training and experience to devise and develop new medications. He founded Virbac with the intention of providing veterinary surgeons, farmers and pet owners with a range of innovative solutions to fight animal disease.
Present today in more than 100 countries, Virbac has maintained its independence and dedication to animal health. Linking the needs of health care providers to the latest technological advances, Virbac’s innovation offers a practical and comprehensive range of products and services covering the majority of species and pathologies. Thanks to this, and supported by the highest international quality standards, Virbac has been forging relationships with veterinary surgeons, farmers and pet owners in each country for over fifty years. Through these privileged partnerships, in which social, health and environmental issues come together, Virbac contributes day after day to help shape the future of animal health.
