Reports: Zyrtec launches virtual pet-walking Facebook app

Zyrtec Furtec allows upload of pet pictures, virtual walks in animated park

NEW YORK — Johnson & Johnson division McNeil Consumer Healthcare has launched a new marketing campaign around the allergy medication Zyrtec, according to published reports.

Marketing Daily reported that a new app on Zyrtec's Facebook page allowed users to superimpose their pets over an animated depiction of a park and thus take the pets for virtual walks.

The "Zyrtec Furtec" app was launched a year and a half ago and includes the slogan, "Allergies got you stuck inside? Upload your pet and go for a walk!" along with animated representations of a dog, cat, rabbit, hamster and goldfish.
