Virbac (an acronym of virology and bacteriology) is a French company dedicated exclusively to animal health from the inception. It was founded over 50 years ago, in 1968, by a French veterinarian Pierre-Richard Dick. He wanted the company to have a strong focus on vaccines and medicines for companion animals, differentiating the fledgling company from large pharmaceutical companies that specialized in livestock back in those days. Now, for over 50 years, we have been shaping the future of animal health through the wide range of our innovative solutions provided to veterinarians, farmers and pet owners.
