Animal Health and Productivity

The link between health, welfare and productivity in livestock animals is well-established, and of key relevance to maintaining food security and sustainability. Companion animal healthcare is also of growing significance, as the pet industry expands and domestic animals are increasingly viewed as “part of the family”. J A Kemp handles many applications concerning the health of both production and companion species, acting for a variety of university clients and companies with interests ranging from nutrition and therapeutics through to husbandry devices.

Our patenting expertise in animal science includes gene editing and animal breeding, feeds and supplements, diagnostics and health monitoring (including AI-based systems), and treatments for veterinary and production diseases. J A Kemp’s animal health team includes a dual-qualified patent attorney/veterinarian, and is uniquely placed to understand the industry and its commercial considerations, as well its innovations and their patentability.
