NEW YORK — Bayer HealthCare has signed a deal with a pet expert in a campaign focused on cat health, the company said Friday.
Bayer's animal health division announced that it had hired Wendy Diamond and her Russian blue cat, Pasha, to dispel popular myths about cats and promote its flea treatment, Advantage II. Diamond has appeared on television shows such as "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show" as well as in other media outlets.
"When it comes to how well we know our cats, many cat owners are 'barking up the wrong tree,'" Diamond said. "Pasha and I are thrilled to partner with Advantage II to help put an end to both the misconceptions about cats and the fleas that cause them discomfort. And there is no better time to talk about fleas than the warm weather months, when problems related to flea infestation are at their peak."
