About Integrated Animal Health
Integrated Animal Health (IAH) is a privately owned and funded Australian company. IAH began by developing World First Animal Health products based on the patented human TPM® Delivery Technology, which delivers nutraceuticals and also drugs both orally and through the skin. Notably, in 2014, IAH delivered Oxycodone in a World First via a TPM®/Oxycodone topical patch to provide quick pain relief to thoroughbred racehorses with shin soreness.

One of their biggest commercial achievements to date has been a natural application that has shown to decrease antibiotic use by 50% in clinical mastitis in dairy cows, such is the importance of this technology IAH are now in commercial discussions with several Top 10 Global Dairy Companies.
Integrated Animal Health’s business model is to out-license and partner its technologies for separate species and territories globally.
