Carus Animal Health was established in June 2017 with strong financial backing from its parent company Kyoritsu Seiyaku (KS). Carus shares the philosophy of its parent company Kyoritsu Seiyaku for contributing to the unique bond between people, animals and the environment.

Carus Animal Health is focused on enhancing the opportunity for Pet owners to be able to give their pets the best care from cradle to grave by early access and development of cutting edge innovation. This will be secured through access to new technologies and products from academia, the pharmaceutical industry and from early stage companies that have been explicitly founded to exploit new areas of treatment and care.

Carus Animal Health – The Care They Need

We aim to become a global animal health company by quickly identifying the world’s needs and reflecting them in our research and production.

In the 21st century, animals have become more important for human welfare than ever before. In the area of companion animal pharmaceuticals, we provide detailed support not only for the happy, healthy lives of animals including with respect to high-quality vaccines and foods, but also provide support so as to contribute to the creation of an environment in which animals receive proper aging care and enjoy a good quality of life during each stage of their lives.

At #CarusAH we take pride in helping cutting-edge animal health innovations reach their full potential. If you’re developing a new idea, we may be able to help you with a strategic partnership. Get in touch to find out more: https://www.carusanimalhealth.com/contact-us
