Merck’s animal health division, formerly known as Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, will now be known as Merck Animal Health.

“The name change reflects Merck’s commitment to animal health and its complementary role to the overall business,” says Raul Kohan, president of Merck Animal Health. “We aim to generate additional value and sustained growth by continuing to provide integrated solutions with innovative animal health products and services to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”

Merck Animal Health is a global leader in the research, development, manufacturing and sale of veterinary medicines and vaccines,

with a strong presence in biologics and pharmaceuticals. The division generated global sales of $2.9 billion in 2010. For more, go to merck-animal-health.com.
