Vetoquinol acquires Profender and Drontal

Vetoquinol has announced its acquisition of Profender and Drontal, the broad spectrum dewormers for cats and dogs. It is now the new owner of the brands in the UK and Ireland.

The brands were acquired following recent mergers and allow Vetoquinol to play an increasingly important role in supporting practices with their preventative healthcare programmes.

Caitrina Oakes, Vetoquinol managing director in the UK and Ireland, says she is delighted to have brought the brands into the Vetoquinol portfolio and believes they are a natural fit for the company:

‘Vetoquinol has long held a reputation for delivering therapeutic products that extend the capability of clinicians to treat and manage disease. Preventative care is also playing an increasingly central role in practices, with the emphasis on helping pets live longer, healthier, happier lives,’ she said. ‘With many pet owners spending more hours than ever with their pets during lockdown, companion animal parasiticides have never been more important.’

Up to date information on the brands and their distribution can be found on the Vetoquinol website,, by calling 01280 814500, or practices can contact their Vetoquinol territory manager directly.
