NEW YORK, July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- KCSA Strategic Communications, a prominent New York-based communications firm, announced today that it has been retained by Jaguar Animal Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAGX) ("Jaguar" or the "Company"), an animal health company focused on developing and commercializing first-in-class gastrointestinal products for companion and production animals, to spearhead the Company's investor relations program.
"As an innovative biopharmaceutical growth company, Jaguar presents a promising investment opportunity in the animal health market which, despite being comprised of a limited number of public players, has received increased attention from the investment community," said Jeffrey Goldberger, Managing Partner of KCSA Strategic Communications. "As Jaguar executes on its strategic growth initiatives, KCSA will work closely with management to increase the Company's visibility to a broader audience as we work to expand and diversify its shareholder base.

"We have a robust and innovative pipeline that includes prescription and non-prescription candidates for the treatment of various forms of watery diarrhea in companion and production animals, with numerous opportunities for expansion.
