As the leading manufacturer of veterinary pharmaceuticals in Austria we guarantee efficiency, flexibility and responsibility granted by constant development and investment. The pharmaceutical production of all our products is of course carried out in accordance with the current GMP specifications. Strict quality control ensures high product quality.

The production of sterile and none sterile liquids is our main strength. We also manufacture semi-solids such as ointments and gels as well as powders.
