Vet Pharmaceutical Industry Jobs

 Apart from animal care opportunities in corporate and private practice, the majority of private-sector jobs for veterinarians are in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, contract research services, diagnostics, agrochemical and animal feeds industries.

Those industries offer veterinarians diverse job opportunities and some of the highest salaries and benefits available in veterinarian employment.

The demand for veterinarians in the pharmaceutical industry is growing thanks to changes in socio-economic living standards and consumer behaviour, which are driving the demand for new drugs for pets and companion animals.

In turn, this is now the largest factor influencing the recruitment of Pharmaceutical Veterinarians.

Worldwide, just over ten per cent of Veterinarians are employed either as Agricultural or Pharmaceutical Veterinarians in one of the three following areas:

  • Diagnostics
  • Biotechnology
  • Biologicals and pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceutical Veterinary work covers a diverse range of job opportunities, including technology, equipment, drugs and innovative animal care solutions. Working in the Veterinary Pharmaceutical space is a well-respected alternative career path to practice, hospital or public sector veterinary work.
