Origin’s pig businesses are comprised of Garth Pig Practice and Integra, and together care for a third of the UK pig population, as well as providing consultancy overseas. Both of these businesses are driven to provide high value, evidence led, quality veterinary services and advice.

The veterinary service is backed up with the Biobest laboratory network in York and Edinburgh, providing serology, and bacteriology. Gross pathology services are provided, either by the pig vets, or via Origin’s Large Animal pathology service, using a recognised veterinary pathologist. The group research capability allows us to scientifically approach trialing and validating new products or approaches.

The livestock disciplines of ruminant, pig and poultry work closely together to investigate how best to benefit our customers, sharing experiences and approaches to gain knowledge and advantage from the differences.
