The World Needs More Of What We Can Give

Merck Animal Health has a story to tell. It began in the Netherlands in the 1940s. Our original product was sulfaquinoxaline, the first poultry coccidiostat.

The company evolved and merged throughout the decades, but its commitment to collaborating and building strong partnerships to improve the health of animals throughout the world never changed.

Many innovations and thousands of healthier animals later, Merck Animal Health enjoys its status among the top animal health companies the world.
