Our name, Zoetis, with its roots in such familiar words as zoo and zoology, is derived from zoetic, meaning “pertaining to life.” It signals our dedication to supporting the livestock producers and veterinarians everywhere who raise and care for the farm and companion animals on which we all depend. We pledge to continue working hard every day with our customers, so they can achieve the success they deserve … and provide the animal care the world needs.
We focus sole on Animal Health
Zoetis is a world leader in discovering, developing, manufacturing and marketing veterinary medicines and vaccines – as well as complementary diagnostics, genetic tests, and services. We work to help meet a global need: the growing demand for both animal protein and animal companionship. With our singular focus on animal health, we strive to make our products, services and people the most valued by our veterinarian and livestock producer customers around the world.
Supporting an Industry that Touches everyone
The animal health industry consists of two key segments: livestock – such as cattle, swine, poultry, sheep and fish – and companion animals – including dogs, cats and horses. Because of human population growth, an expanding middle class in emerging markets, and a steady migration of people from rural to urban locations, the need for both livestock and companion animals will continue to grow. While these trends are good for our industry, we are all nevertheless challenged by increasingly limited natural resources, emerging infectious diseases, and other constraints.
To help our customers address these concerns and challenges in ways that are truly relevant, we combine three unique and interconnected competitive advantages:
• Our ability to work shoulder-to-shoulder with veterinarians and livestock producers, thanks to the most welltrained sales, veterinary and technical professionals in the industry
• The development of clinical innovations based on medical need, evidence-based research, and market opportunities
• A global supply chain that provides our high-quality products when and where our customers need them
Building a Culture of Listening and Problem Solving
With our local presence, we try to understand what it takes to help our customers address their most pressing animal health challenges. And when their animals thrive, we all benefit. Our model is clear: our customers are the experts in their businesses, and we provide effective products and services that help them care for their animals and improve their profitability.
But to make it work, it’s important to have honest, face-to-face conversations about real needs and how we can better meet them. In short, we want to learn what’s working, what’s not and how we can do more to help.
Playing such an important role requires science and technology, as well as our day-to-day, hands-on support. By developing new products and enhancing existing ones, we continually respond to both immediate and future needs. For livestock producers and veterinarians around the world, we do everything we can to anticipate and solve their problems, so they can care for animals more effectively and run their businesses more productively.
The Zoetis Advantage
Since our founding as an independent company in 2013, we have chosen to base our culture on five Core Beliefs that connect and inform our diverse work force, shape our work environment, and guide us in our activities around the world. Essentially, these Core Beliefs are the promises we make to our customers, colleagues and stakeholders each and every day.
• Our colleagues make the difference.
Our colleagues distinguish Zoetis from our competition. We grow our company when we create an environment where colleagues excel.
• Always do the right thing.
Integrity is the guiding principle for all our decisions and relationships. We are honest and trustworthy in our words and actions.
• Customer obsessed.
We are passionate about our customers and the animals in their care. Our customers come first, and when they succeed, we succeed.
• Run it like you own it.
We take ownership to deliver results that matter. We constantly pursue faster, simpler and better ways of doing business.
• We are one Zoetis.
Zoetis is much more than the sum of its parts. We work together with a common purpose, sharing knowledge and resources, for the best interest of our company as a whole.
Three Interconnected Capabilities
• Customer relationships.
We can’t do what we do without building strong relationships through direct interaction with our customers. So, we work where they live and work, making an effort every day to listen to their concerns and help them succeed.
Building on our current offerings, we remain committed to researching and developing ever-better solutions designed to address our customers’ most pressing animal health challenges.
• High-quality manufacturing and supply.
We have established an efficient, effective and global manufacturing and supply network because we know our customers depend on high-quality, reliable supply at competitive prices. Our network draws strength from its mix of internal sites, external partners and various technologies to serve diverse customer needs.
As one customer put it, “What sets Zoetis apart is that they go beyond the product. They offer other services to help us analyze our performance. That allows us to get better at what we do. You might say they care both about what they do and what we do.”
As the challenges of veterinarians and livestock producers around the world continue to evolve, we strive to anticipate needs and health trends, and develop new ways to help our customers care for animals more effectively and run their businesses more productively.
Our manufacturing and supply network – including more than two dozen manufacturing facilities around the world – provides expertise in biological and pharmaceutical production. Colleagues at these facilities collaborate with R&D to make sure we transition technology from the lab to full-scale production easily and efficiently. The result: high-quality, reliable supply at competitive costs.
Investing in the Future
Veterinarians play a crucial role in sustaining the world’s food supply and in caring for companion animals. That’s why we invest in the future of the profession by supporting research, education and specialized skills training. We want veterinarians to have the products and solutions they need to provide the best animal health care possible.
