DS Pharma Animal Health was established in July 2010 as a research and development-oriented manufacturing and sales company of veterinary medicines and other products, spun off from the business division of Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma Co. Based on the experience and achievements accumulated through more than 70 years of veterinary medicine business, we are developing "companion animal business" that supports the bond between humans and animals, "livestock and fisheries business" that supports people's affluent lives, and "clinical testing business" that is indispensable for definitive diagnosis.
In addition to the provision of pharmaceuticals and functional foods, we are expanding our business domain to encompass the entire needs of veterinarians, pet owners and livestock farmers (healthcare cycle), including medical examinations, tests, diagnosis, medication and aftercare, and are promoting transformation into a company that provides comprehensive solutions.
