The combined company will operate as Wedgewood Pharmacy, with more than 500 employees serving 40,000 prescribers and hundreds of thousands of animal owners from two geographically strategic facilities. Wedgewood will have the most comprehensive portfolio of formulations available and industry-leading technology, to better help them care for the unique needs of their animals.
