MSD Animal Health in Austria

At MSD, we conduct research not only for the benefit of people, but also for our closest companions: our animals.

Many pathogens that cause infectious diseases in humans can be transmitted by animals – if we keep animals healthy, we keep humans healthy.

We address the world’s biggest animal health challenges and make an important contribution to companion animals and livestock with our vaccines, anti-infectives and other healthcare products. In Austria, MSD manufactures animal products at two sites, from where they are exported around the world. Our customers know they can rely on both – our products and our technologies. All our active ingredients and medicines undergo extensive quality testing.
