McCarthy & Sons Service is a full-service veterinary marketing, supply, and distribution company. Their team of distribution representatives are well versed in surgical and wound care products, and has experience bringing innovative products to the animal health market in Canada. McCarthy has a sales team covering all of Canada as well as marketing support from their headquarters in Edmonton, Alberta.
The distribution was established as an extension of Imbed’s exclusive North America distribution partnership with Jorgensen Laboratories. Western Drug Distribution Center, also located in Edmonton, Alberta, is handling the import and warehousing of MicroLyte® Vet.
Canada has a significant veterinary market, with over 8 million dogs and over 8 million cats owned by approximately 41% of all households. Like Europe, regulatory steps have been taken in Canada to address antimicrobial resistance due to the overuse of antibiotics. MicroLyte® Vet is seen by veterinarians as an alternative that can be used to prevent infections while not running the risk of producing antibiotic-resistant strains.
Supported by an established animal health distribution company, Imbed Biosciences expects MicroLyte® Vet to quickly become a standard in Canada as it is now becoming across the United States. The CEO of Imbed Biosciences, Ankit Agarwal said, “Canada is a great opportunity for growth in our veterinary product line, and an important part of strengthening our animal health partnerships in North America.”
