Protecting animals while benefiting mankind

Bayer Animal Health is proud of our recognition as a worldwide leader in protecting animals. Since 1897, our continuous research and development in animal health and pest control products has helped animal caretakers — producers and pet owners alike — fulfill their commitment to the health of livestock and companion animals. Encouraging and maintaining a healthy environment helps prevent disease transmission among animals, whether it be from pests or respiratory diseases. At Bayer, we understand our unique position in improving overall animal health and well-being and the critical impact that protecting animals has on our food supply, both now and in the future.

Our Heritage

For more than a century, Bayer has been known for its innovative research and uncompromising development of medicines and healthcare products. This proud legacy traces back to the foundation of Bayer AG in 1863 by Friedrich Bayer in Elberfield, Germany and the introduction of Aspirin in 1897. Building upon this heritage, Bayer Animal Health has established itself as one of the world's leading manufacturers of veterinary solutions for both farm animals and companion animals – helping to keep them healthy.
