Caring for Animals & Creating Trust

Improving the health, comfort and care, and well-being of livestock and companion animals.

Unconditional Commitment to Animal Welfare

We work to make the animal’s life the best that it can be.

Merck Animal Health has hosted the Advancing Animal Welfare Together Symposium annually since 2017 as part of our Unconditional commitment to animal health and welfare.

The symposium brings together renowned animal welfare experts and thought leaders from food animal producers, academics, processing and retail to address the importance of understanding practices essential to animal welfare today – and the advancements possible in the future. The symposium initiates the exploration of important topics at every step from farm to table, new partnerships are formed, and we can find new ways to advance animal welfare together through open discussions.

Caring for Animals &
Creating Trust

At Merck Animal Health, we are sharing the stories of farmers, ranchers and veterinarians dedicated to raising food for American dinner tables. By facilitating a greater understanding of how food is grown and raised, we help bridge the gap between farm
and table and advocate for agriculture.

Growing together for a better tomorrow.

Looking forward to future generations.

The future looks bright.
