Univet Products


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.
