Pfizer begins integration of Fort Dodge

Oct 26, 2009
New York -- Pfizer Animal Health finalized its acquisition of Wyeth’s Fort Dodge Animal Health, making it the biggest player in the animal-health market. And today a second piece of the deal was unveiled -- the government-approved divestiture of certain Fort Dodge products to Boehringer Ingelheim (BI).

BI picks up Duramune® vaccines for dogs, Fel-O-Vax® vaccines for cats, Rabvac® and a host of other offerings for the food-animal, equine and small-animal markets. (For a more detailed list, click here .)

Pfizer retains products like LymeVax®, Ketaset®, Promeris®, Quest® and West Nile Innovator®. (A complete product list is summarized below.) According to Pfizer senior officials, the integration will take time but should appear seamless to its veterinarian customers. All current U.S. pricing, product distribution, programs and policies for Pfizer products, including the acquired Fort Dodge products, will remain in place for 2009, Pfizer says.

This acquisition creates a “robust portfolio” in small-animal, equine and food-animal markets, Clint Lewis, president of U.S. operations for Pfizer, tells DVM Newsmagazine. The animal-health portion of Pfizer’s business is estimated at some $3.5 billion. And the acquisition will fortify its investment in research and development, Lewis says.

George Fennell, vice president of companion animal and equine, says the combination of these product lines will offer the company new opportunities for dedicated animal-health research.

“We will be able to build on this integration,” Lewis says. “No other company in the last several years has been able to push innovation and science and offer better quality tools to veterinarians and pet owners alike.”

As part of the Fort Dodge acquisition, Pfizer will close its Overland Park, Kan., facility and consolidate its veterinary research and development operations in Kalamazoo, Mich.
