The Animal Health business group produces a wide range of products to maintain the health of livestock and companion animals, as well as a range of home and farm pest control products.
Protect animals, benefit people: that is our mission, one in which we are among the leaders worldwide. Bayer has attained that leadership position by continuously researching and developing new products for animal health and pest control since 1919. Because a responsible relationship between people, companion animals and livestock requires that we safeguard the health of animals.
Dogs, cats and horses are human companions, and the part they play as they accompany us through life is growing in significance. Keeping this close relationship healthy is not just an obligation to our animal companions. It also protects people from the transmission of disease pathogens. And to that end, we are constantly developing new products and forms of administration. But we don't stop at companion animals: for millions of farm animals as well, we offer extensive protection in the form of effective and safe health care products.
Effective health care also involves a healthy environment for man and animal. Maintaining a healthy environment prevents diseases that can be transmitted to animals or people by way of pests such as insects or rodents. Here again, Bayer delivers specific products, for example, against malaria-carrying mosquitoes and pests that contaminate or destroy foodstuffs.
