The primary focus of researchers has been to control helminth, arthropod and protozoan parasites in animals, along with maximum productivity to livestock producers. In 1985, Virbac, formulated a parasiticide drug for the treatment of ruminants. This research has augmented the growth of animal parasiticide industry by advancing the development of modern medicines aimed at promoting animal healthcare. Researchers have formulated new medicines after identifying the increasing advent of infections by parasites in animals by re-examining their research and drug formulation for parasite infection. Animal parasiticides industry reinforces its business by making new collaboration with existing market players. This helps the industry to grow by development of innovative products and lead optimization in the research and development structure.
