SmartVet is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in developing novel formulations optimized for topical and transdermal delivery.
Unlike companion animals such as cats and dogs, livestock poses a unique drug delivery challenge: how do you get the product onto the animal at the time it will be most effective? To unlock the potential of its formulation expertise, SmartVet had to find a better way to deliver medications to livestock. An innovative new way to apply medications to cattle without needing to handle them was developed.
The VetGun delivery system uses a precision-engineered CO2-powered VetGun that projects a precise new dosage form called a VetCap, a balistic gelatin capsule. Fired from a safe distance of 15-30ft, the VetCap fragments upon impact, and then goes to work immediately in a similar way to traditional pour-ons.
Optimizing both the delivery process and the timing of treatment, reduces the impact of parasites and other diseases. SmartVet’s technologies can substantially increase output of livestock production systems worldwide.
SmartVet's US headquarters are based at the state-of-the-art International Animal Health and Food Safety Institute in Olathe's new Bioscience Precinct about 20 miles from Kansas City, KS
