Ceva Animal Health is a global animal health company focused on the research, development, production and marketing of pharmaceutical products and vaccines for companion animals, livestock, swine and poultry.
Although Ceva has grown to become a global company, we have managed to retain the spirit of a small to medium-sized enterprise. We owe our existence to the farmers, pet owners and veterinarians who support us. As a result, we are dedicated to providing them with the best possible products and services.

The bond between humans and animals forms an essential part of life. We believe it should be embraced and reflected in science as well. We aim to provide products and services that not only protect and improve the lives of animals, but ultimately the well-being of every person in our global community.
