A message on the events in Ukraine

The escalating war in Ukraine is deeply concerning to the IDEXX community and we strongly condemn the invasion and violence there.

As an animal healthcare company, IDEXX provides support for veterinary professionals around the world to enable essential care to companion animals. We are guided by our Purpose to enhance the health and well-being of pets, people, and livestock.

Over the past several weeks, IDEXX has significantly scaled back operations and has suspended shipment and sales of veterinary diagnostic equipment in Russia. Our focus is on supporting our employees and veterinary customers that already use an IDEXX product so they may continue to provide essential care. We continue to closely monitor the situation and are complying with all applicable laws and sanctions.

Additionally, IDEXX has suspended its promotional, marketing, and hiring activities, as well as new business development and related investments. IDEXX does not have any manufacturing in Russia.  

We will continue our work through the IDEXX Foundation with the International Fund for Animal Welfare, International Medical Corps, and World Central Kitchen as we look for more ways to support Ukrainian refugees and their pets.
