Bayer: New tick product for dogs
set to take global veterinary market by storm

Launch to follow regulatory approval in the USALeverkusen – Bayer HealthCare's Animal Health Division in the USA is getting off to a great start in 2003 with a new veterinary product to combat ticks, fleas and mosquitoes. The new product eliminates the vectors that transmit Lyme disease and West Nile virus, two diseases that represent a danger to humans too. Following a record development time of just three years and recent regulatory approval in the USA, the product is scheduled for submission to the authorities in countries worldwide in the next few years.

Members of the international scientific community and research scientists from Bayer today presented the new product to more than 10,000 experts and veterinarians attending the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Florida. The company expects the new flea and tick treatment for dogs to become one of the most successful products in the veterinary market.
