The transport and storage of drugs and vaccines for animals requires specific precautions. Temperature is a fundamental factor in preserving these products as well as possible. Woopets is shining a spotlight on Koovea, a French company specializing in the cold chain, whose co-founder, Adrien Content, addresses health and financial issues, while offering an innovative solution.”

Our animals also need to take medication or receive their doses of vaccines. To preserve them, it is important to monitor temperature variations, a mission that the Montpellier startup Koovea has set itself.”

Every year, nearly $35 billion worth of pharmaceuticals (destined for humans and animals) are lost worldwide due to a break in the cold chain.”

Zoom on the health issues

In addition to the financial losses noted, Adrien Content recalls that a product exposed to temperature excursions can be dangerous for health.”

Such a failure actually causes various consequences, such as: – side effects; – a loss of effectiveness of the product; – a death.”

Every year, a plethora of pigs, cattle and other farm or pet animals are victims of negligence related to non-compliance with the cold chain. An ineffective vaccine, for example, exposes them directly to a myriad of diseases.”
