Drug giant Pfizer has combined operations with Wyeth, following the closure of a $68 billion acquisition last week. The deal included its subsidiary Fort Dodge Animal Health, which is now part of Pfizer Animal Health.

Pfizer Animal Health, one of six business units of Pfizer, is a world leader in discovering and developing innovative animal prescription medicines and vaccines, investing $300 million annually.

The acquisition of Fort Dodge U.S. products will allow Pfizer Animal Health to expand its U.S. portfolio, as well as broaden its offerings within all animal health divisions.

“We are proud to offer our customers even more best-in-class and innovative products,” said Clint Lewis, president of U.S. Operations for Pfizer Animal Health. “Our products, services and expertise will expand what is already a robust U.S. portfolio while enhancing our position in the animal health marketplace.

Pfizer is more focused than ever on providing relevant solutions to their animal care needs,” Mr. Lewis said.

Veterinarians and their customers in more than 60 countries across four global regions - United States; Europe, Africa & the Middle East; Canada & Latin America; and Asia Pacific, are supported by Pfizer Animal Health.
