Veterinary Science

Veterinary science overview

Our work is about reaching new frontiers in canine genomic science, discovering important genetic markers that help to identify breed mixes and determinants of physical and behavioral traits. These major scientific advances allow veterinarians and owners to care for dogs with unprecedented wisdom. We draw on work carried out at our Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition, the world’s leading authority on pet care and nutrition, as well as the expertise of respected veterinarians, universities and breed organizations throughout the world.

The Mars Ambassador Program provides opportunities for our associates to become involved in corporate responsibility initiatives.
