About us

AnimalhealthEurope is the association representing manufacturers of animal medicines, vaccines and other animal health products in Europe.

It is a not-for-profit body representing both corporate members and national animal health associations in Europe. It represents both innovators and generics alike, as well as large, medium-sized and small companies. AnimalhealthEurope’s membership covers 90% of the European market for animal health products.


Our mission is to be the voice of the European animal medicines industry.

Our aim is to highlight the importance of healthy pets and farm animals and to demonstrate the reliability and value of our solutions to society. By ensuring a ready availability of animal health products throughout Europe, we can help optimise health management, while contributing to the sustainability of food production and keeping the companion animals that share our homes free from disease.


Our work centres around three priority focus areas:

  • One Health – By protecting animal health we can help protect public health and our shared environment
  • Innovation – By researching and developing new ways to prevent, manage and protect animal health we can support vets, farmers and other animal owners
  • Sustainability – By making a wide range of tools available we can support more efficient agricultural practices, and help pets remain healthy members of our families, contributing to the general well-being of all of Europe’s citizens

The animal medicines industry in Europe operates under stringent EU and national controls and the association has adopted a European Code of Good Practice as a voluntary supplement in support of the relevant laws and regulations.
