Our veterinary expertise
OUR VETERINARY SURGEONS HAVE OVER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND ARE FORMER PRACTITIONERS. FACED WITH REAL PROBLEMS AFFECTING PETS AND THEIR OWNERS, THEIR EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
As innovation is one of the founding values at FRANCODEX, our veterinary surgeons give great importance to prioritising the need to plan ahead for changes, whether behavioural, social or regulatory in nature.
The core task of our veterinary surgeons, before product design and formulation, is to identify new needs and new challenges in animal health.
We can see that the problems facing pets today are no longer the same as those 10 years ago. Changes in breeds, pet living conditions, habitats, air quality, etc. are new issues which create new needs. Our veterinary surgeons are adapting in response to these changes.
Furthermore, Laboratoire FRANCODEX has adopted an ethical and responsible approach.
OUR VETERINARY SURGEONS SELECT MORE NATURAL INGREDIENTS, PROPOSE EFFECTIVE AND SAFE FORMULATIONS, TOGETHER WITH FORMATS THAT ARE MORE PRACTICAL AND SUITABLE IN TERMS OF ANIMAL WELFARE.
At FRANCODEX, the veterinary team explores, innovates, and carries out tests, measurements and inspections in our goal for constant improvement day to day, in response to your pet’s every need, with their wellbeing our priority.
OUR QUALITY CHARTER REFLECTS THE REQUIREMENTS THAT WE HAVE ADOPTED TO OFFER SAFE AND EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS. OUR VETERINARY SURGEONS FOLLOW A RIGOROUS SELECTION PROCEDURE FOR RAW MATERIALS AND ACTIVE INGREDIENTS.
The manufacturing site for Francodex products and the country of origin of the ingredients are the 2 main criteria for guaranteeing high quality, optimum safety and flawless traceability.
QUALITY & SAFETY
We work closely with our suppliers to guarantee raw material quality. Quality control takes place at every step, to manage the safety and stability of our hygiene and care products.
SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
As part of our Responsible Purchasing approach, we have also introduced a ZOLUX Group Supplier Code of Conduct, to maintain transparent, fair and win-win working relationships, aiming for continuous improvement.
OUR VETERINARY SURGEONS KNOW HOW TO DEVELOP RELIABLE PRODUCTS THAT ARE GOOD FOR ALL ANIMALS. OUR GOAL AT FRANCODEX IS TO GO EVEN FURTHER BY ADOPTING AN ECO-DESIGN APPROACH IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS FOR ALL OUR INNOVATIONS OR RE-WORKED EXISTING PRODUCTS.
The purpose of this approach is to design and develop a product with the precise active dose, in a suitable container that reduces waste, to reduce our carbon footprint throughout the product life cycle and to adapt to each animal’s preferences and habits.
Before the decision-making stage, we take into consideration all factors with an impact on animals and humans: breed, weight, age, coat type and the pet’s nature. We offer a wide variety of products for every need.
WE ALSO ADAPT OUR PRODUCTS TO EACH ANIMAL’S PREFERENCES IN TERMS OF FLAVOUR, TEXTURE AND FORMAT.
For example, different oral hygiene products are available: powder, toothpaste in powder or chewable form, liquid solutions, sprays and treats.
We offer several solutions to protect pets from parasites: sprays, oral solutions, pipettes, shampoos, lotions, powder, diffusers and collars.
Eco-design also involves constantly striving to combine pleasure, effectiveness, ease of use for pets and their owners, while protecting the environment. This involves completely optimising our products, taking these 4 criteria into account.
Eco-design also requires everyone to be committed and work as a team. Our veterinary surgeons and research department thus work with all stakeholders to develop our formulas: scientists outside the company, regulatory experts and suppliers.
Our veterinary surgeons work towards building a precious relationship between pets and their families.
PETS AND THEIR OWNERS ARE THE STARTING POINT FOR ALL OUR IDEAS. BECAUSE PETS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR LIVES, OUR VETERINARY SURGEONS WORK TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THIS CLOSE RELATIONSHIP AND BRING JOY TO BOTH PETS AND THEIR OWNERS.
At FRANCODEX, we believe that the veterinary profession should have an educational role allowing all families to live in harmony with their pets, while reducing stress factors.
WE THEREFORE TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN PROVIDING OUR CONSUMERS WITH GENUINE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES.
For example, we provide detailed package leaflets, tutorials to guide pet owners in using our products properly: how to apply a treatment pipette, how to fit a safety breakaway collar, etc.
Our veterinary surgeons encourage a close relationship with clients and offer guidance to families. They are constantly available, even by phone, to talk to pet parents who have doubts, questions or need advice.
