Oxbow Animal Health strives to expand your resources and capabilities so you can start your career with the specialized knowledge it takes to succeed. Through KINDSWELL, we offer support to help you do your best work.

Educational Partnership

Oxbow’s Educational Partnership Program (EPP) is designed to support veterinary schools and their students. The EPP currently assists more than 30 veterinary schools by providing educational materials, pet food and supplies, and other educational support.

Each school has a student representative who communicates with Oxbow on a regular basis. A representative is often a member of the school’s zoo, exotic or wildlife club. The EPP program provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the health and nutrition of non-traditional and exotic pets.

EPP Program Benefits:

Product Support

The school’s veterinary hospital receives product support to help care for in-house patients.

Up-to-Date Information

Students receive the most current information pertaining to exotic animals.


Oxbow offers educational literature and presentations.

Scholarship Opportunities

Veterinary students can compete for academic scholarships sponsored by Oxbow Animal Health.

This special partnership with the nation’s top veterinary schools allows Oxbow Animal Health to stay on the cutting edge of exotic animal nutrition and clinical care while we support the development of new generations of veterinary professionals.
