Zoetis Inc., the Parsippany-based animal health giant, has acquired veterinary reference lab business Ethos Diagnostic Science, it announced Friday.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Zoetis entered the veterinary reference lab sector with a pair of 2019 acquisitions, and continues to grow its presence with the deal for the Massachusetts-based company.

“We are thrilled to add the Ethos Diagnostic Science labs to our expanding diagnostics presence in the U.S., and we look forward to working with their dedicated, trusted, board-certified pathologists and laboratory technicians,” Lisa Lee, Zoetis’ senior vice president and head of global diagnostics. “With the addition of Ethos’ labs in San Diego, Denver and Boston, we continue to build a more holistic diagnostics portfolio at Zoetis, and together we can provide veterinarians with even more valuable service and accurate insights that inform the care they provide to animals.”

Ethos Diagnostic Science is a business unit of Ethos Veterinary Health, testing for a variety of veterinary species in a variety of fields through its three labs.
