Companion animals

A rich source of innovation for the Ceva Group. If there is one field in which Ceva Animal Health has demonstrated the full extent of its innovation capacities, it is that of companion animals.

Cat and dog behaviour

Through several major innovations, Ceva has opened up the possibility for vets to address behavioural disorders in cats and dogs, an area about which little was known until now and the subject of few clinical studies.

  • 1996: Beginning of a new pheromonatherapy approach. Launch of Feliway® to help manage behavioural problems in cats
  • 1997: Launch of SELGIAN® (Selegiline) to help manage behavioural disorders in dogs
  • 2000: Building on our pheromonatherapy experience. Launch of AdaptilTM providing an innovative approach to the behavioural problems puppies and adult dogs experience

Canine cardiology

Although it benefits from little media attention (compared with flea treatments, for example!), cardiology is a science in which progress is being achieved, extending the lifespan of dogs in parallel with that of their owners.
Why should we just accept the accelerated ageing of our trusty companions when the owner is treated for the same type of pathology?
It is this type of modern sociological approach to the issue that drove the Ceva Group pharmaceutical development teams to propose a range of medicines to treat heart problems in dogs, including PRILENAL® (enalapril) and, above all, PRILACTONE® (spironolactone), the world’s first veterinary application of a molecule already in use in human medicine.


When we speak of locomotion in companion animals, the key problem is the degenerative joint disease - arthrosis that affects our cats and dogs as they live longer.
For these animals, CEVA has developed specialities that are widely recognised for their efficacy: anti-inflammatory drugs (CARPRODYL®, MELOXIDYL®) 

Other therapeutic fields

Another innovation comes in the field of reproduction: GALASTOP®, a prolactin inhibitor used to treat lactation in pseudopregnancy (“false pregnancies”) in dogs.
