It’s undeniable: Pets truly make the world a better place. That’s why we’re inspired to make A Better World For Pets™, a world where they’re healthy, happy and welcome.
Our 85,000 Petcare Associates spend their days (and occasionally nights!) thinking about the 400 million pets of the world and how to improve their lives. This involves everything from their nutrition — through foods like PEDIGREE®, WHISKAS® and ROYAL CANIN® — to high-quality medical care provided by BANFIELD® Pet Hospitals, VCA® and AniCura. Our Associates also think big picture, working to end pet homelessness and alleviate student debt for veterinarians. The WALTHAM Petcare Science Institute is also driving the innovations we need to improve pet health through nutrition, data and veterinary care.
