Pfizer Inc. (PFE), Zoetis Inc (ZTS): 4 Investment Opportunities in Animal Health

Foolish bottom line

Unfortunately, investors looking to get into these businesses must invest in their pharmaceutical parents or simply wait for an IPO. There are no current plans for Merck Animal Health, Merial, or Elanco to go public, but I think investors will see these companies sport tickers of their own in the not-too-distant future. If that does happen you should consider an investment. The industry is enormous, growing, and relatively stable. Besides, if Roofus gets sick you’ll probably pay whatever veterinarian bill comes your way to get him back into top mailman-chasing shape. It only makes sense to take advantage of these investment opportunities.
