About Healthy Animals
HealthyAnimals.org is an initiative of the Animal Health Institute (AHI), a nonprofit organization that represents companies with an interest in veterinary health. Our mission is to educate the public on the disease-prevention continuum and our guiding philosophy is that by giving animals medicine, we can keep humans healthy, too. At HealthyAnimals.org you can find out our goals and latest initiatives.
Promoting the Link Between Animal and Human Health
To educate the public about the close connection between animal health and human health, the Animal Health Institute and its member companies collaborate on an initiative called Healthy People. Healthy Animals. Healthy Planet. This initiative has helped bring together leaders in the pet, agriculture, veterinary, and public health communities with the goal of eliminating diseases at the nexus of animal and human health.
This award-winning program has reached millions of consumers with important information about the disease-prevention continuum: using medicines to keep animals healthy keeps humans healthy, too.
The Animal Health Institute (AHI)
The Animal Health Institute (AHI) represents companies with an interest in veterinary health. Our members develop and produce the medicines that help our pets live longer, healthier lives and contribute to safe food by keeping food animals healthy.
Since our inception in 1941, AHI has helped create an environment that fosters robust research and development of innovative and needed veterinary medicines. AHI member companies further the discovery, development and approval of medicines that promote animal health in a research-driven industry.
We work to ensure a science-based review of products and encourage continuing research and development in the area of animal health. We represent our members by advocating for animal health issues, including efficient and effective FDA, USDA and EPA regulatory and approval processes.
