More than 50,000 full-time jobs* in Europe depend on the animal health industry.

+/- 15,000 directly in production, marketing, sales, administration and R&D;
+/- 18,000 indirectly as a consequence of the industry's purchases of goods and services, including contract R&D, logistics, capital equipment, and raw materials;
+/- 17,000 through its "multiplier" effects" (each € of expenditure on goods and services by the direct employees of the industry creates an additional employment in other sectors, especially services).

*This estimate excludes the distribution of veterinary medicinal products and livestock farming.
