About Nimrod Veterinary Products

Nimrod Veterinary Products Ltd was founded in 2007 by David Renney, a veterinary surgeon with a particular interest in farm-animal and equine medicine.

We make or find novel tools for the veterinary surgeon, particularly innovations that will benefit from our expertise and technical support. We believe the vet is the best person to advise farmers and horse-keepers on the health, welfare, productivity and performance of their animals. And within our fields of expertise, we support vets in doing so.

We are a corporate member of the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH). The NOAH’s aim is to promote the benefits of safe, effective, high-quality medicines for the health and welfare of animals.
