Henry Schein, Inc., announces that Butler Schein Animal Health will be rebranded as Henry Schein Animal Health. The rebranding process will take place throughout 2013.

“This transition from Butler Schein Animal Health to Henry Schein Animal Health underscores our increasing strength in the global animal health market and our commitment to be a valuable resource to our customers and supplier partners around the world,” says Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer for Henry Schein. “We now serve 68,000 veterinary customers across 14 countries, delivering tailored solutions that combine our global resources with local market knowledge. This rebranding preserves the rich heritage of Butler Schein and links our United States operations more closely with our market-leading animal health businesses throughout Europe and Australasia.”

Butler Schein Animal Health was created in 2010 through the merger of Butler Animal Health Supply, which included The Butler Company and Burns Veterinary Supply, and Henry Schein Animal Health, which included NLS Animal Health, and immediately became one of the leading U.S. companion animal health distributors.

It represents the largest component of Henry Schein’s global animal health business. Henry Schein also is the leading animal health provider in Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland and the Czech Republic, with operations in Spain, Portugal, the U.K., France and Austria. In addition, Henry Schein is a leading global provider of animal health practice management software solutions.
