Vetcare supports Finnish University research activities
New product development has taken an increasingly important role of the activity within Vetcare. Novel, new & innovative pharmaceutical products, as well as generic products manufactured by the company itself, form an extensive share of the product portfolio of Vetcare.
Research University collaboration play an important role in the product development activities of Vetcare, and substantial cooperation is performed with, among others, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Helsinki, the University of Eastern Finland, and the University of Turku.

Our cooperation has been, and is, very fruitful and rewarding. The financing provided by Vetcare has both enabled grant professorships and long-term cooperative projects for our professors, led to the fact that there are several doctors theses in the making, and given the possibility for several research groups to participate in product development projects of Vetcare.”
