DU welcomes new corporate partner
MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 25, 2007 – Sporting dogs and wetlands and waterfowl conservationists are getting a show of support from Bayer, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures K9 Advantix, a topical flea, tick and mosquito control product. In its ongoing commitment to the outdoor community, Bayer recently joined Ducks Unlimited as a corporate sponsor.
“Our sponsorship of Ducks Unlimited underscores our dedication to sporting dog enthusiasts,” explained Thomas Hopper, director of marketing for Bayer. “But above all, our common conviction is that this generation is the custodians entrusted with conserving America’s wetlands and waterfowl for future generations.”
Ducks Unlimited says support from companies like Bayer and brands such as K9 Advantix help waterfowlers become more aware of useful products that help them and their retrievers enjoy the sport more. The support is also critically helpful to DU's mission.
"Ducks Unlimited is proud to welcome Bayer's commitment and to have such a relevant product join the Ducks Unlimited family of corporate supporters," said Philip Milburn, DU’s director of marketing and corporate relations.
K9 Advantix is a once-a-month topical flea, tick, and mosquito treatment for dogs and puppies 7 weeks of age and older. It contains imidacloprid and permethrin and is available in four dosage sizes: 10 lbs. and under, 11-20 lbs., 21-55 lbs., and dogs weighing more than 55 pounds. It is available in both 4-packs and 6-packs.
Founded in 1863 in Germany (and universally known as the inventor of aspirin), Bayer Healthcare’s Animal Health Division has long provided veterinarians, breeders and dog owners with products that enhance and insure the life and health of their dogs.
