Animal Welfare Standards
At Elanco, we believe that animal welfare is integral to the sustainability of our global communities. This is why our Global Animal Welfare Policy takes a holistic view of animal care, not simply the role that our products play. As an animal health company, we respect animals and are dedicated to safeguarding their welfare worldwide; our commitment to improving the lives of food, companion, and research animals is highlighted in the guidelines of our Global Animal Welfare Policy.
Elanco supports, and works within, the concept of animal welfare as defined by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
Our Animal Welfare principles
Our position is based on respect for animals
Our policy, positions and business practices are based on sound science with a focus on continuous improvement
Respect for animals will be achieved through the principles of having access to good housing, feeding, health, and expression of appropriate behaviors
In our efforts to support the welfare of animals that enrich our lives, we will work with all stakeholders, including veterinarians, producers, academics, governments, NGOs, contract research organizations, and the public, to share knowledge and sustain or improve good animal care
We support a sustainable approach to animal welfare that accommodates efficient food production and companionship to enrich the lives of a growing population
We support responsible use of our products as a component of comprehensive animal care by empowering stakeholders, as well as enabling the responsible use of our products, services, and training to either increase or sustain good animal welfare
The roots of Elanco Aqua date back to 1984 when Aqua Health Ltd started innovating and commercialising fish health products for worldwide use. In 2001 Novartis Animal Health acquired this business, growing it significantly for 13 years, before becoming part of Elanco Animal Health. During its entire 35-year history, Elanco Aqua has been fully committed to delivering innovative products for the aquaculture industry.
