Our Vision

Afrivet sets new standards for the animal health industry by helping pet owners, farmers, veterinarians, and other professionals in the field of agriculture to contribute to a successful and professional livestock farming industry in Africa.

This we do through our innovative products, professional knowledge solutions and support services delivered via passionate and purposeful local and global collaborations.

Our reason for being

Afrivet provides animal health products, knowledge solutions and services for animal owners, farmers, and veterinarians in Africa. Our locally and internationally developed and tested products prevent and treat disease and promote food security and safety.

We provide home-grown solutions for Africa’s animal health challenges

Multinational animal healthcare companies are concerned with global animal health issues. They look at global problems to solve. Necessary and valuable as it is, a global approach overlooks problems that are critical for farmers and stock owners here in South Africa and the rest of our continent.

Afrivet knows this. For this reason we have spent the past 20 years understanding local conditions and local problems. With our feet firmly planted in African soil, we enable farmers, animal owners and veterinarians across the continent to maximise animal health and safe food production by giving them access to knowledge, products and solutions that are relevant and well-timed.


Established in 2000, Afrivet is the only truly South African animal health care company and trusted as one of the top 2 suppliers of stock remedies and veterinary medicines in South Africa (MSSA survey 2021). Now, building on our success in Southern Africa, Afrivet intends to expand and be recognized as a Pan-African, Research-based Animal Health Company, which provides all animal and livestock-owners with:

  • a wide range of innovative, high-quality, cost-effective stock remedies and veterinary medicines proven for African conditions,
  • supported with sound, up-to-date technical advice and
  • Primary Animal Health Training via a motivated, well-trained team of employees and distributor network

Afrivet Training Services

Afrivet Training Services’ unique training program in Primary Animal Health Care is indicative of our commitment to service and support to the animal health industries we do business with. Various Governments, NGO’s, Corporates, distribution companies and integrated commercial farms make use of this unique training process.

We focus on developing the methodology and materials to empower and uplift livestock producers; from smaller subsistence livestock farmers to commercial livestock handlers and managers, allowing them to optimally look after their animals, prevent and treat disease and to use animal health products correctly, safely and optimally.

Our commitment

Through high quality animal health products and training provision, as well as technical support from our in-house veterinarians and specialists, we at Afrivet live our motto: “Animal Health is in our DNA”!
