Virbac Group

Focusing on animal health, from the beginning

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, Virbac has maintained its independence and its 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. Thanks to our offer, supported by a manufacturing base that meets the highest international quality standards, Virbac has been forging personalized relationships with veterinarians, farmers and pet owners in each country for more than 50 years. Through these privileged partnerships, we are all moving forward together to shape the future of animal health, a fascinating territory at the crossroads of societal, health and environmental issues.
