In two separate agreements, Pfizer and Virbac, a French animal health company, will acquire the 12 product franchises. Pfizer will acquire products from Schering-Plough's parasiticide, swine E. coli vaccine, ruminant clostridia vaccine, equine influenza vaccine, ruminant neonatal vaccine, anti-inflammatory, companion animal/insulin and companion animal/euthanasia, and rabies vaccine franchises.

The transactions are subject to certain closing conditions, including regulatory approval by the European Commission.
