About Virbac

Company Description

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 a desire to provide veterinarians, farmers and pet owners worldwide with a set of innovative solutions to fight animal diseases.

Today, present in more than 100 countries, we have maintained our independence and our essence. Linking the needs of caregivers with the latest technological advances, our innovation ecosystem delivers a practical range of products and services to diagnose, prevent and treat the majority of pathologies, all while improving the quality of life for animals.
