About Royal GD

GD is a leading organization in animal health and animal production. For 100 years, GD has supported industrial customers, governments, veterinarians and farmers by providing animal health programs, contract research and laboratory services

GD is unique in combining animal health expertise with expertise in laboratory diagnostics. We combine knowledge about disease monitoring and eradication with practical research projects to improve livestock production. In addition this enables us to offer products and services that not only improve animal health, but also generate good financial returns. 

We are located in Deventer, the Netherlands. We own one of the largest veterinary laboratories in the world, in which we perform over almost 5 million laboratory analyses annually. Furthermore, GD employs a team of veterinarians, specialists and scientists who execute animal health monitoring, conduct practical research and develop programmes for animal disease prevention and control. 

Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. More than 600 different analyses are performed routinely, varying from post mortem research to executing molecular diagnostic tests. The demand for external quality control is becoming more and more important. Taking part in a proficiency testing scheme is a valuable part of a laboratory’s quality-control management. GD Animal Health offers laboratories the possibility to participate in international proficiency testing schemes. Our proficiency testing schemes are valuable for your laboratory’s quality-control management.
