Like many significant achievements, Absorbine® grew out of humble beginnings—and through the tenacity of someone willing to question the status quo. In this case, it was a young woman in late 19th-century Massachusetts: Mary Ida Young. Her husband, Wilbur Fenelon Young, was an enterprising piano delivery man who relied on the couple’s team of horses to make deliveries throughout the Northeast. In addition to caring for their horses, Mary Ida was an avid gardener and herbologist. Through her knowledge of healing herbs, she formulated a special blend of herbs and essential oils into a tincture designed to increase blood flow and speed healing—without painful burning or blistering. Inspired by Mary Ida and Wilbur’s vision, Absorbine® has continued to add innovative products throughout the years — products used every day by horse owners around the world. Which is why, since 1892, we’ve been The Horse World’s Most Trusted Name.® Manufactured by W.F. Young.

When Durvet opened for business in 1970, its doors were literally attached to a van carrying its animal health care products warehoused in a tiny 500 square foot rented facility. Durvet was the first entity in the OTC animal health market to be involved in both manufacturing and distribution, and this vision proved to be the model for the animal health supply chain business. Over the years, Durvet has diversified its inventory with equine care and pet health lines.
