Carus Development Pathways
Carus Animal Health collaborates with partners in academia and early-stage innovative companies to bring solutions to the needs of veterinary professionals within the animal health sector.
The relationships we develop with veterinary professionals and research & development teams are vital for us to understand the needs of the animal health sector, as well as what new technology is being developed that may meet these needs. We are always interested and excited to meet with potential stakeholders who may want to be involved in any clinical trials we run, as well as R&D teams of academic facilities and early-stage innovative companies.
Alternatives to antibiotics
Together, Medical and Veterinary professionals have been actively reducing unnecessary use of antibiotics, reserving them for when there is a true need for them. This has been in a joint effort to reduce the amount of antimicrobial resistance seen in people and animals.
The responsible use of antibiotics ensures that we are future proofing treatments vital for the health and welfare of animals and people.
Alternatives to antibiotics is an area that Carus Animal Health has been investing in, as we join the many professionals in their search for solutions to common ailments that allow for us to reserve antibiotics for when most needed.
Carus Animal Health is pleased to be collaborating with Fixed Phage to bring bacteriophage-based products to the animal health sector. Bacteriophages are viruses that can infect and kill bacteria, with the benefit of targeting specific bacteria.
Fixed Phage uses patented plasma discharge technology to aid in the stabilisation of phages for a longer period of time.
By using this patented technology from Fixed Phage, we aim to launch products in the animal health sector that maintain the health and welfare of the animal, while aiding in the reduction of antimicrobial resistance.
Critical decisions often need to be made rapidly within our busy veterinary clinics. The importance of being able to make informed decisions based on the results from diagnostic tests, has put added pressure on veterinary professionals to be able to offer services that shorten the time to get results of these tests.
Carus are engaged in developing diagnostics with interest in point of care diagnostics, recognising the benefit to the practice and pet owner of being able to rapidly perform a test and the impact this can have on reporting the result and decision making.
Collaborations with multiple partners in this sector are ongoing.
We live in a digital world, where applications are routinely sought as a solution to data collection, data mining and monitoring of trends within the animal health sector. Carus aims to bring solutions and platforms to the animal health sector that address these needs.
Additionally, developing novel applications used by pet owners, for maintaining the health and wellbeing of the pet, and the health, wellbeing and mental health of the pet owner.
