About AMA

Animal Medicines Australia Ltd (AMA) is the peak industry body representing the leaders of the animal health industry in Australia.

Animal Medicines Australia member companies are the innovators, manufacturers, formulators and registrants of a broad range of veterinary medicine products that prevent, control and cure disease across the companion animal, livestock and equine sectors.

In the livestock sector, member company products are improving agricultural yield while delivering improved environmental, health, safety and animal welfare outcomes.

In the companion animal sector, veterinary medicines produced by member companies are facilitating longer partnerships between humans and animals.

Animal Medicines Australia works closely with a variety of industry organisations to promote an evidence based approach to public policy.
