Study and evaluate potential
We witness an active growth in the veterinary market, in both agricultural animal farming and in the sector of pets; many drugs for veterinary use have been registered. Through marketing research our Clients receive information, outline preferences and become more efficient in the rapidly changing market.

The client’s drug is used for preventive vaccination of pigs from Aujeszky’s Disease, Glasser’s Disease and Actinobacillus Pleuropneumonia (APP). To develop a marketing strategy of drug promotion, MAR CONSULT has carried out a marketing study and received detailed information about the current practice of animal vaccination in pig farms and specifics of drug purchase in this segment.
