Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO) (“Bausch + Lomb”), a leading global eye health company dedicated to helping people see better to live better, announced the introduction of Project Watson health care products for dogs in the United States. The new line of products is specifically formulated to help support dogs’ eyes, ears and overall wellbeing using high quality and naturally inspired ingredients.
“For nearly two centuries, Bausch + Lomb has been associated with many of the most significant advances in eye health. Building on our eye care expertise and history in surgical solutions for veterinarians, we created Project Watson to help address the unmet health care needs of dogs,” said Joe Gordon, president, Global Consumer, Surgical and Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “Developed in collaboration with veterinarians, Project Watson focuses on dogs’ eyes and ears – important areas that are often overlooked in the health of our beloved four-legged family members. Project Watson products will begin rolling out online in certain retailers beginning next month.”
“Grooming care for dogs often includes nail trims and haircuts, but regular eye and ear maintenance is also necessary. Without regular eye and ear cleaning, there is the potential for skin irritation and infections among other issues,” said Danielle Rutherford, VMD, Westside Veterinary Center, New York. “I look forward to having access to this new dedicated line of products for dogs and their pet owners.”
Project Watson products are manufactured and packaged in recyclable containers at U.S. Food and Drug Administration-registered facilities in the United States using U.S. and imported ingredients. The eye wash and two supplements will be available online starting in November 2022 at Chewy, Walmart, PetSmart and Amazon. The remaining three products will be available by the end of the year.
