Veterinary medicine and the animal health market use many of the same drugs, biologics, devices, equipment and diagnostics that are used in human medicine. However, the development and regulations of animal health products can be very different from the human approval process. These differences can affect the types of studies required for approval, the manufacturing process, labeling, and other conditions for advancing a product into veterinary medicine.
Key Veterinary Product Categories
One of our first objectives with clients is establishing realistic expectations on the veterinary market. Despite the fact that animal health is a multi-billion dollar industry, only a handful of veterinary products exceed $100MM USD in sales each year. Clients often have misconceptions about the veterinary market, or have received advice from consultants who are not veterinarians, do not have R&D expertise, and/or have a limited scope of experience in bringing a veterinary product to market. Our veterinary consulting team is different, as we a bring real-world and realistic perspective based on decades of diverse roles in the animal health market.
