About AHI

Message from the President

For more than 75 years, AHI has worked diligently to improve the health and well-being of animals, which in turn protects and improves the health and well-being of people.

The human-animal bond is stronger than ever before, and research shows that pet ownership helps relieve stress, anxiety, and even high blood pressure.  Yet with so many animals and people living in such close quarters, it’s important to safe-guard the health and well-being of animals through medical treatment, including medicines. From cancer treatments for dogs to vaccines that help stop the spread of viruses like the H1N1 flu, we are dedicated to protecting pets and the people who love them.

On the farm, animal medicines are the critical link in the food safety chain, both in terms of treating sick livestock and controlling and preventing disease outbreaks. Our industry has a responsibility to bring to market the technology that helps ensure the global issue of safe, abundant, and affordable food.

AHI and its members are proud to be part of the cycle of health that has led to an overall healthier planet.

– Alexander S. Mathews, President and CEO
