R&D at Univet


Univet has developed an impressive pipeline of veterinary product candidates through a culture of inquisitiveness, efficiency and continuous improvement.

Our business plan and product development are steered in accordance with the values that evolved from our origins as a family business: unremitting commitment to quality improvement, better resource allocation, providing a culture of innovative thinking and a guarantee to always strive for excellence.

Univet work in partnership with Enterprise Ireland which aids our sustained expansion through R&D funding and business guidance.  

The entire Univet team are committed to discovering, developing, manufacturing and marketing veterinary medicines that achieve both iterative improvements and breakaway potential.  Univet attributes our lasting success to a unique ecosystem that allows our people to thrive.

R&D in Veterinary Products for Large Animals


Univet products are developed using sound scientific knowledge  driven by our in-house research and development team. Our research is carried out initially at our dedicated laboratory and eventually on-site with our farming community.

Once our products are successfully launched, our continued commitment ensures that we partake of extensive post marketing pharmacovigilance. This continued monitoring assures the quality, safety and efficacy of our products and the health of the animals we treat.

Capital Investment in new manufacturing processes


R&D and Capital initiatives in Univet are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020. The aim is to develop new veterinary products for worldwide markets targeted at increasing R&D activity which will drive company development. This investment guarantees increased productivity and continued competitiveness through the purchase of physical assets and successful business collaboration.
