About us

Enthusiasm drives us


Out of responsibility, of course. For us, this is not just a good-sounding slogan, but the core of everything we do.

For over 100 years, we have been THE specialists for effective preparations for animal health on a natural basis – the pioneers of animal health.



Ecology, economy and social issues


The term sustainability is often used in relation to nature conservation and environmental protection. At SaluVet, this basic attitude extends to all areas and thus also shapes the company management and social interaction.


It all began in Munich in 1919


Schaette was founded in 1919 with the aim of producing effective preparations for animal health on a natural basis. This philosophy has been at the core of the company from the very beginning and is still the common thread running through the company’s history today. What began in 1919 with a vision is today, after more than 100 years, “ancient” – and topical at the same time!
In 2015, Dr. Schaette merged with SaluVet GmbH in order to be able to operate even more strongly and effectively on the market together with the subsidiary PlantaVet GmbH, which was founded in 1989. The company name has changed, but not the values and convictions that have existed for 100 years.
