About Us

In 1978, four men, fueled by the belief that the veterinary community needed a company to service their unmet needs, each put in $5,000, their industry-specific expertise and a huge dose of optimism to found such a company. This company’s business would be dedicated to leading the industry in research and development of niche products and drug therapies that address overlooked areas of pet and animal health.

Pro Re Nata is a Latin phrase meaning as the circumstance arises. It has come to be used in prescription medicine as p.r.n. or as needed. This is how PRN® Pharmacal began and it is how we continue to view ourselves today. As true as it was in 1978, the veterinary community can be assured that PRN Pharmacal will be here when needed to provide products that improve animal health and quality of life.

Under the highest quality and rigor of Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) and standards, we strive to provide a wide range of products for the enhancement of animal health in areas of veterinary medicine that are largely under-served. Our mission is to continually improve our products and services to meet the needs of the veterinary industry, and is driven by both our employee-ownership and a fundamental set of values.

    Quality comes first.

    To achieve customer satisfaction, the quality of our products and services must be our number one priority.

    Continuous improvement.

    Knowing that it is essential to our success, we must strive for excellence in everything we do: in our products, in their safety and value – and in our competitiveness.

    Our veterinary industry customers are our partners.

    Whether that be veterinarians, distributors, dealers or suppliers, the company must maintain mutually beneficial relationships with those partners and our business associates.

    Our dedication to animal health goes beyond mission statements and company mottos. We are constantly seeking new, unique products, as well as improvements on formulations, packaging, palatability and ease of use. We know that to grow, we have to meet the needs of companion animals and livestock, the veterinarians who treat them and the owners who rely on animals for their livelihood and companionship. It has been that way from our beginning and will continue that way into our future…
