19 Dec, 2022 - Zoetis Inc. (NYSE: ZTS) today announced it has completed the acquisition of Jurox, a privately held animal health company that develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of veterinary medicines for treating livestock and companion animals. Jurox’s operations are based in Australia, with additional regional offices in New Zealand, U.S., Canada and the UK.
